The primary responsibility of the experiential education program at St. John’s is to offer outdoor and experiential education in support of and within the context of the school-wide curriculum. We strive to provide authentic and challenging experiences that help students develop an understanding of self, others, and environment, and to support St. John’s mission to offer a genuine challenge for development of a sense of self-worth and of personal responsibility. Director of Experiential Education, Marty Thompson (’91), helps coordinate and manage risk on existing 5th-9th class trips while working to expand the range of off-campus opportunities available to students and families throughout their time at St. John’s.
