Orenda Springs offers a "Classroom in the Woods" that enables students to immerse themselves in Expeditionary Learning. This classroom includes 130 acres with gorgeous woods, miles of trails, streams, springs and a pond. The natural environment stimulates students' curiosity for learning. Integrated Thematic Instruction, now known as "Highly Effective Teaching" creates students who become more self-motivated to learn English, Math, Social Studies and Science. Facilities include a large indoor classroom, indoor horse riding arena with a real rock-climbing wall, natural amphitheater, tipi, several group camping sites, and a ropes course that has been called "the most unique course I have ever seen" by a nationally accredited inspector. Orenda Springs is a non-profit organization incorporated to assist people in improving themselves and their relationships with others.
