Experiential Education

Experiential Learning

Beyond the Harkness table, there are many opportunities for students to apply and expand their knowledge through experience.

Experiential learning allows students to witness the real-life application of their studies during the school day. In addition to lending a sense of closure to theoretical learning, these experiences offer students a legitimate opportunity to learn from failure — and feel validation from success — in a way that isn't possible in classroom learning.

Whether connecting with the land at the Big Red Farm, deepening their understanding of world cultures, or embarking on a trip abroad, Lawrenceville students know there's no limit to what they can learn.
