Experiential Education

August 24, 2015

At the core of an Overlake education is the ability to step outside the familiar, immerse in the unknown, and learn by doing. Our educational experiences take on all shapes, from tackling the wilderness during one of our many Outdoor Education trips; to working at local non-profit organizations in our Service Learning program; to diverse Project Week experiences ranging from supporting one of our sister schools in Cambodia or Uruguay to exploring our Seattle coffee culture. Each of these purposeful opportunities deepen our commitment to continual and meaningful education at Overlake. 

The mission of the Experiential Education Department is to generate opportunities for student learning and growth through authentic and interactive experiences.
