EXPLORERS WANTED

Congressional provides an educational frontier experience that encourages inquisitive young minds to ask questions, and, with just the right instruction and guidance, discover not only the answers but also their potential.

Outdoor Classroom Day

On October 6, we excitedly participated in international Outdoor Classroom Day. While being privileged to have a 40-acre campus to explore every day, teachers used this opportunity to its fullest potential. Examples:

  • 7th Grade Algebra searched for the Fibonacci sequence in nature
  • Kindergarten students took their reading time to our Readers Garden

  • 1st Grade searched for signs of fall in a scavenger hunt
  • 4th Grade used our amphitheater as a Readers Theater setting
