Course Description :

At Leelanau, we believe in teaching our students how to learn, not just what to learn. The learning process is threaded throughout the student experience and doesn’t end at the close of the academic day.

We place strong value in experiential and strength-based learning which is coupled with a well-rounded college preparatory curriculum. Our course credits are given in one semester increments to allow for robust and thoughtful discovery of many topics within each core content area. It also allows room for exploration during one of our signature program’s Winter Term.
