7th grade rock climbing trip

"I love how students learn, not only inside the classroom or from books, but from what is outside the classroom. They are being taught to be respectful, how to be good citizens, and respect every culture."

— Glenda Lozano, Capital City Parent

Students often share that our adventure program is their favorite part of a Capital City education. This program is intentionally designed to build community and self-esteem. Trips push students beyond their comfort zones and encourage students to take risks. We routinely witness our students working together and supporting one another to overcome challenges. Activities include hiking, swimming, ice-skating, rock-climbing, and camping trips.  

As a model for best practices in teaching and learning, National Geographic joined our students and staff on a variety of adventure trips during the 2016-2017 school year. Watch these videos to see how a Capital City education, including our adventure program, empowers our students to be explorers and learn collaboration, communication, and problem solving skills.
