What sets Promontory apart?

1. Our method of Teaching
Expeditionary Learning is an educational model designed to promote critical thinking skills and habits, academic achievement, and personal development through the use of in-depth investigations that engage students in community, projects, and service. An expedition brings experts into the classroom, takes students into the field, and engages students in real world learning experiences.

2. Competitive Advantage
Expeditionary Learning (ELeducation.org) is a school improvement organization with a 17-year track record. In districts across the country, the EL model's results demonstrate that schools don't need to choose between high achievement and turning kids onto life-long learning. With 165 schools in 29 states, serving approximately 46,000 students, Expeditionary Learning schools are achieving replicable, sustainable and scalable outcomes across widely different school environments and populations.
