Sierra Nevada Journeys (SNJ)
SNJ’s Whole School Model is our flagship educational program. This program ensures the teachable moments inherent in outdoor education are extended across the year and throughout a student’s grade progression. The idea uses outdoor science education supported by in school lessons and teacher professional development to maximize student knowledge and achievement across science, math, reading, and collaborative problem solving.
The diagram below illustrates how students and teachers experience the Whole School Model through grades 3rd-6th.
