The COAST Program is a life-changing, outdoor education experience for Grade 10 students. We aim to help students in learning about themselves and to develop enduring positive character traits. By exploring the natural world through the lens of academics, individual and group leadership, environmental ethics, and outdoor skill development students develop a stronger sense of balance and respect for themselves, and for the world. Upon leaving the program, students can expect to have learned the value of making informed responsible decisions, initiating action, and taking personal responsibility for who they become. For more information, please visit our dedicated COAST Information Page.
