WE BELIEVE

IN THE INFINITE POWER OF YOUNG PEOPLE

SO, WE ARE CREATING EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS TO HARNESS THIS POWER, RIGHT HERE AND RIGHT NOW.

In 2011 we designed a new educational approach that combines classical content and skills with real-world problem-solving. Powered by Constructive Adversity, we are inspiring a new generation of creative problem solvers with a social conscience. And we are growing TEA’s magic in order to reach thousands of young people far beyond the shores of Lake Tahoe.

Tahoe Expedition Academy includes a fully accredited Pre-K-12th-Grade school, robust summer programs, and engaging after-school clubs that educate hundreds more young people each year. Our graduates are enrolled in some of the nation’s best colleges and universities and, perhaps more importantly, our current students are having a positive impact on the world around them, right here and right now.

TEA IS POWERED BY CONSTRUCTIVE ADVERSITY®

Which is the intentional construction of and engagement with adverse environments in order to build character,
promote ethical engagement, and create knowledge and skills.
