Expeditionary Learning Curriculum

Our dynamic curriculum engages students and is designed so that students and teachers develop meaningful relationships based on trust and mutual respect. The Expeditionary Learning curriculum allows them to work collaboratively over time to guide the students’ learning, develop and achieve their goals, and live in the world as engaged citizens.


Two Rivers recognizes the community as one of its greatest resources. The community is the main setting for students’ learning expeditions and the focus for service projects. Learning to interact and utilize community resources is an integral part of the program at TRCS.
