Carroll County Outdoor School is Carroll County's residential environmental science program. As part of the 6th grade curriculum, every 6th grade student has the opportunity to participate in this week-long learning experience. The process of Environmental Issue Investigation is utilized for a variety of current and local environmental topics. The focus of the week is to create environmental stewards for the future of our local communities by empowering students to be prepared and excited to "take action" at their schools and their homes.

Our Vision:

We see our students as emerging adults, preparing for the future. They are environmentally aware and value natural systems. They possess the knowledge, skills and motivation to make responsible decisions and to take action.

Our Mission:

  • To assist students in acquiring and accessing relevant environmental information.
  • To assist students in developing effective decision making strategies.
  • To empower students to apply their knowledge and skill by providing positive environmental models and opportunities for action.
