Experiential Education

Each year to kick off the start of School, every grade at Bullis engages in Experiential Education. The purpose of the program is to develop class unity, to blend new students with returning students and to emphasize teamwork, self respect, and respect for others. Some programs are focused around an environmental activity; others involve community service. Students travel with teachers on 1-2 day trips, such as:

  • Canoeing and ropes course along the Potomac River
  • Visit to the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center
  • Tour of the Baltimore Museum of Industry and Maryland Historical Society
  • Community service projects working with the elderly, maintaining natural habitats at local parks and helping to make meals for outreach agencies that serve disabled, disadvantaged and homeless populations
  • Scavenger hunt at the National Zoo
  • Tour of nearby colleges to learn about the range of college options to consider before applying, followed by a college application workshop
  • Biking, kayaking, canoeing and rafting

Every student has a connection to others through something here—class, sports, clubs, peer mentors, senior buddies or other things. It makes the whole school feel closer, and is one of the things I love about Bullis.
