Experiential Learning

Kirby recognizes the importance of learning beyond the walls of a classroom. Our holistic approach to education includes opportunities for students to learn through experiences that help them shape their understanding of the world while integrating principles discussed in the classroom. These experiences include community service projects, field trips, class trips and retreats, and more.

"At Kirby, we are given the opportunity to be hands on in our learning. Hands-on learning helps me retain information, and allows me to gain a deeper understanding of the topics we investigate."Kirby 12th Grade Student
