    "What succeeding is to me is completely different than succeeding to another person.  Rather than worrying and stressing about the destination, focus on the journey.  It means so much more."

    -Teona A., after traveling to the National Museum of African American History & Culture

    Webster Groves High School students who engage in experiential learning (ExL) through the Chelsea Detrick Experiential Learning Center make meaning and create knowledge through direct experience.  By providing students with the opportunity to wonder, design, tinker, collaborate, adapt, and communicate, experiential learning prepares students for the excitement and challenges of their current and future lives.  

    The Chelsea Center engages students in practicing these skills while also providing support for reflection on their personal, social and emotional growth.
