The Experiential Education Class (Foreign Travel) is a for-credit class in the high school providing one elective (1.0) Carnegie Unit (CU) toward graduation. New in 2018 and forward, this course is offered with college credit. The class is graded A+ through F. The EEC is one of two experiential learning opportunities offered in the high school the other is North Carolina Outward Bound.
A new group of students is chosen each spring for the following year. Each student is required to attend classes, do various assignments on assigned topics*, study and prepare for the overseas experience, follow strict rules of behavior both on the trip and in the period before the trip, maintain good grades, and write a journal that will be graded. The overseas experience is considered an academic course, and students receive a grade based on their pre-trip work, the journal, chaperone comments, and a suggested grade given by each of the chaperones. The final grade includes all these factors and is given by Mr. Proietta, as Lead Teacher for the Class. College grade and credit are assigned by the University of California San Diego at their sole discretion. We are proud to travel each year with Worldstrides International Discovery Programs.
