Archer Welcomes New Year with Experiential Education Programming
Archer welcomed the 2023-2024 school year with experiential education for all grades. From the mountains of Wyoming to the coast of Malibu, students swapped their polos for t-shirts and embraced the outdoors. It was a time for connection, reflection, and celebration.
6th-10th grade students participated in Fall Outing on the first Friday of the school year, Friday, August 25. Each grade’s Fall Outing was an opportunity for students to forge bonds with their mentorship groups, classmates, and teachers while spending time outdoors.
The Class of 2030 traveled to Franklin Canyon Park in Beverly Hills, where students engaged in ground team building to foster trust, effective communication, and leadership amongst their peers. The Class of 2029 learned similar skills while also engaging in high ropes in Camp Gilmore in Calabasas.
Both the Class of 2028 and 2027 engaged in high ropes team-building and ground team-building with the live wolves of Temescal Canyon Gateway Park in Pacific Palisades.
