EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING PROGRAM

Secondary School

Experiential Learning is a vital cornerstone of learning at The ISF Academy. All students in Grade 6 to 11 participate in this carefully sequenced experiential program that promotes learning skills in critical thinking, problem-solving, leadership, collaboration, global citizenship, service and communication. Our students gain real-world experience that is connected to and directly supports academic studies and is also an essential component of the IB Learner Profile, The ISF Academy’s “Eight Virtues + One” and the IB’s Approaches to Learning.

Experiential learning relies on immersion in unfamiliar settings and participation in novel activities that support personal development. Each year, students undertake two Experiential Learning Programs (ELP1 and ELP2) as a part of their core studies at The ISF Academy. The experiential learning curriculum offers a progressive pathway for students to enhance their life skills outside of the classroom.
