Experiential Education



Dawson's Winterim is an experiential learning program that provides K-12 students an opportunity to dive deeply into a special topic, culture, or activity. It is a way to cultivate and discover passions and is one of many experiences that set a Dawson education apart from other schools.

* Students in grades K-4 have special campus activities, guests, and field trips centered on a theme, such as World Cultures.

* Grades 5-6 travel as a grade to an outdoor education center in Colorado for fun team-building and science-based activities.

* Grades 7-12 explore various educational options outside the classroom, with local, domestic, and international experiences.

Faculty-designed programs support the school's mission by requiring students to stretch themselves in mind, body, and character while exploring their education from an active, experiential perspective that goes beyond the walls of the conventional classroom.
