THE BOUNDLESS SCHOOL — Boundless is an adventure based high school set on
600 stunning acres along the Madawaska River in eastern Ontario. In the spring
and summer, we take students on ambitious outdoor adventures, specializing
in whitewater; and exploring the remote rivers of the Ottawa Valley. In the
fall and winter, we run a boarding school that weaves the outdoors together
with Math, English, History and Leadership curricula.
excelling in the outdoors is beside the point.
focus is on having students emerge from Boundless proud of
their accomplishments, more connected to others, and having discovered
new and lasting insights about their abilities. They earn high
school credits while doing so.
The students that participate are the real story behind Boundless.
The majority of our participants are older teenagers. They arrive
here with great zeal, sometimes with an attitude or a special need, and engage
in some truly extraordinary learning journeys. They develop new relationships
with school and achievement.
We also work with
adults with mental health issues in May/June. Other adults arrive with the
burden of having acquired brain injuries. Seeing these folks succeeding in the
rapids or rappelling down a wall is pure inspiration; as is watching them
coming out of their shells and feeling like they belong.
