Community-Based Experiential Learning
At La Luz, learning happens through authentic, real-world, and fun experiences that take place outside of the classroom and in the community. We believe that students learn best through doing and reflecting in a community-based ecosystem of learning.
In a competency-based approach, we measure what matters, which not only includes academic competencies, but also the specific skills, habits, and dispositions we want learners to develop. This is a whole child approach that moves away from traditional methods of grading and assessment.
