backed by over 30 years of experience offering educational programs for youth, arc offers summer experience for teens which combine an academically focused educational curriculum with, international travel, cultural immersion, travel, outdoor adventure and, in many locations, community service projects.
Every Arc Academic Expedition is a journey built on three pillars:
The experience of an adventure and the self-discovery that comes from intellectual and personal growth.
The recognition of your own potential, thirst for knowledge and pursuit of excellence.
The commitment to live life to its fullest, for your own benefit and for the benefit of others.
Each day will bring new challenges. As you meet them, you will gain new insights; as you conquer them, your sense of self-reliance and confidence will soar. You will discover something new within yourself, the ability to accomplish things you might have only dreamed of, indeed might not even have imagined.
This kind of exploration does not occur in a traditional classroom or come from lectures and books alone. Learning on Arc is the result of intense and exciting experiences, of immersing yourself in a new world, in an environment unlike any you have ever known. It is learning that inspires, motivates and prepares you for your future.
It is this type of experience that will prepare you for college and exactly the type of experience that college admissions officers look for in students. More than that, it is preparation for life's journey; to embrace adventure, to recognize and meet its challenges and to make the commitments it demands. This is why the rewards offered by the experience of an Arc Academic Expedition will last a lifetime.
