Year At A Glance
The student learning experience at La Luz is organized by:
Studios: 3-6 week deep immersion experiences in projects and community field work.
Intensives: 1 week deep immersion experiences into fields of study students are passionate about, such as cooking, animal rights, or mural art.
This summer we will be planning the experiences for the 2022-23 school year. Check out the amazing experiences we had this last year!
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.
