Explore Possibilities: EXCSEL
Have you heard about EXCSEL, SDJA’s hands-on learning opportunities?
Our Experiential and Character Education, and Social Emotional Learning program (known as EXCSEL) offers a guided, once per week lesson which is supplementary and complementary to our Advisory program. It provides Experiential hands-on learning opportunities in Character Education and Social Emotional development.
With an ever increasing need for middle school students to be exposed to stimulating hands on learning, this program aims to enhance our students’ academic and social skills in a non-traditional classroom setting. The program covers hands on experiments, challenges, day and overnight field trips, group work, service learning and further character education and social skills development at this very important age.
Nicole Trotta, our Director of Experiential Learning is the Lead Teacher for EXCSEL, working with the Guidance counselor, the Dean of Students, and external professional organizations.
Stay tuned for more stories about how our students benefit from this program.
