The Outdoor Education Experience program moves students beyond the borders of the classroom exposing them to new, dynamic learning experiences. Students learn new life skills, participate in community service, develop leadership and problem-solving skills, and/or increase their understanding of themselves and of other cultures. The trips expose “students to” physical, emotional, and intellectual challenges that make them more well rounded and stronger learners and people.
Each year High School students embark on a four-day trip with their grade-level classmates to explore a different part of Uruguay. This format ensures that all students have an outdoor experience, become more familiar with Uruguayan flora, fauna, and culture, and build stronger bonds with their classmates. By the end of their high school careers, UAS students students will visit four distinct regions and ecosystems of Uruguay.
