A Semester “Away” in Northeast Ohio

Current Laurel students and girls from the Greater Cleveland area can pause their studies at their current school and earn a semester of credits through an immersive Fall or Spring semester learning about issues in Environmental Justice and partnering with solution-focused organizations throughout greater Cleveland to take action. At the end of this highly-engaged academic “semester away”, students return to their regular academic program at their high school inspired and hopeful about solutions in the environmental justice movement.

Learning deeply within a dynamic interdisciplinary structure enables students to more authentically examine the multidimensional aspects of real-world Environmental Justice challenges and understand the varied skills necessary for vigorous scholarship, effective dialogue, and transformational action.
