Watershed School will be holding a Virtual Open House for their Climate Action Leadership Lab (CALL) Semester Program on Thursday, March 4, 2021, at 6:30 p.m. EST.
Prospective families and students are invited to learn about CALL, a semester-long program for high school sophomores and juniors equipping students with knowledge and tools to act on climate change in their community. The Open House will focus on the CALL curriculum, opportunities for students both locally and around the world, and day-to-day life at Watershed. Watershed faculty, current students, current parents, and alumni will be there to answer questions.
“The Climate Action and Leadership Lab inspires the next generation to overcome the challenges posed by climate change with resilience and creativity,” says Will Galloway, Head of School, in a news release. “Through conversations, projects, innovative coursework, and community partnerships, our students are creating a 21st-century culture that prioritizes communication, conservation, stewardship, and sustainability.”
Watershed School is an independent high school located in Camden, serving students who are looking for a challenging academic program in the context of a supportive and enthusiastic school culture. A Watershed education is built on the principle that exceptional individual growth develops out of strong teacher-student relationships within the context of a close-knit community. Faculty concentrate on knowing each student in the school — in terms of learning style, interests, attitude toward learning, challenges, and aspirations — so they can help develop each student’s full potential. The democratic nature of the community develops skills leading to effective citizenship and fosters a healthy affection and sense of responsibility for the school, thereby increasing student openness toward learning, toward each other, and toward adults. The attitudes fostered at Watershed School prepare students for a lifetime of learning and for involvement in local communities and the larger world.
Watershed is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, is a Maine State Approved High School, and is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).
