Educational Adventures Week

Travel abroad, volunteer to help elementary school children in San Francisco’s Tenderloin, learn yoga, dance and meditation, be a tourist in your own backyard, or participate in an adventure travel experience.

These opportunities and more are offered to students during our week long, annual Educational Adventures week in April.

In September, Orinda Academy students select their Educational Adventures class from a catalog of mini-courses that have been carefully planned by our faculty. We also welcome parents to participate in the longer distance trips.

The offerings change from year to year and include international trips, regional trips, and daily local adventures. Students and families indicate their first, second and third choices via an online registration form. The courses and trips are then balanced to give as many students as possible their highest priority choice. Course/trip assignments are announced at the end of December.

Worldwide Learning

Educational Adventure classes span the globe from those that take place at home to faraway places such as Cuba, Baja, Mexico, Costa Rica, the Galapagos Islands, Japan, Russia, Greece, Turkey, Hawaii, France, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and many more. This exciting week shows students that learning stretches beyond the classroom, expands their horizons, and can create life-changing experiences.
