We’ve got a fantastic line-up of Summer 2013 Programs:
At Cascade Mountain School we believe students should be given a real-world context for their learning and be pushed to analyze and synthesize information to understand the world around them. Too often, traditional academic environments can seem irrelevant, boring, and meaningless to students. At Cascade Mountain School, we offer a dynamic learning environment, one in which senses are enlivened and academics become relevant to daily life.
Cascade Mountain School is a residential STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) program for middle and high school students located in the Columbia River Gorge (an hour drive from Portland, Oregon). Cascade Mountain School is dedicated to cultivating individual responsibility and personal growth; fostering creation of community and understanding of the natural world; and excelling in scientific inquiry, systems thinking, and sustainability studies.
