TEA Films

Think. Experience. Act.

Welcome to TEA Films. Each of the videos on this site is produced by students with the intention of inspiring other students to advocate for causes they believe in.

Our school, Tahoe Expedition Academy (TEA), is located in Truckee, CA. Every student at TEA is challenged to tackle real-world problems through a three-step process.

#1 THINK: Identify a problem you’d like to solve. Seek to understand what it is, how it came to be and what you can do to solve it.

#2 EXPERIENCE: With background knowledge in-hand, go out into the real world and experience the issue first-hand.

#3 ACT: Take what you’ve learned to create something that can help solve the problem you’ve identified.

We hope you enjoy these student-made films. Our students are supported by their teachers throughout the video creation process. From the science behind video production to the art of effective storytelling, our goal is to empower our students to be persuasive communicators across multi-media platforms.

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.
