Experiential Learning and Project Connect
"I regard it as the foremost task of education to insure the survival of these equalities: an enterprising curiosity, an undefeatable spirit, tenacity in pursuit, readiness for sensible self denial, and above all, compassion."
- Kurt Hahn founder of Outward Bound
Project Connect builds a path of support for students from active military families, grades 7-12. The effort is directed to the academic, social, and emotional needs that come from being a part of the military culture due primarily to transition, mobility, and deployment. The project focuses on ASD’s two high schools and two middle schools with the highest population of military connected students: Bartlett High School, Eagle River High School, Central Middle School, and Gruening Middle School. Typically each year, over 1,000 military connected students attend these schools. Learn more about Project Connect here.
