At the Island School, we are committed to providing a progressive and dynamic environment for visiting students of all ages to engage in experiential learning.

Our mission within our Educational Programs is to instill a sense of place and leadership within students that enables them to make meaningful changes in their own communities.

Implementing primary research, working with sustainable systems, and incorporating outreach with the local community are what make our short courses such a transformative experience for students.
