Connecting real world
experiences with academics.
Constructive Adversity® uses intellectual, social and physical challenges to help students engage, grow and thrive. Strategically pairing adverse situations with academics enables the fuller growth of our students, both in cognitive development and in character. Our educational approach elevates student confidence, independence, and resilience.
To deliver upon an academic program that builds character we do the following: we combine best in class academics with an adventure that has meaning and relevance to the learning. We then dive deep into that problem using a variety of real world experts, organizations and communities to solve a real problem. We take students, strategically, outside of their comfort zones and guide them through a process of planning, executing and forming a crew to make things happen in life.
