At C.P. Smith we are fostering a growing focus among our faculty, staff and students in Place-Based Learning. Place-based learning in defined as educational experiences that are “rooted in what is local—the unique history, environment, culture, economy, literature, and art of a particular place—that is, in students’ own “place” or immediate schoolyard, neighborhood, town or community.” We are committed to fostering learning experiences for C.P. Smith students that take advantage of our beautiful area of the world and its rich culture and history. We will be updating you on our place-based learning adventures throughout the year.
