From Tahoe Expedition Academy

We believe in the infinite power of young people. So we created educational programs to harness that power, right here and right now.

In 2011 we designed a new educational approach that combines classical content and skills with real-world problem-solving. Powered by Constructive Adversity, we are inspiring a new generation of creative problem solvers with a social conscience. And we are growing TEA’s magic in order to reach thousands of young people far beyond the shores of Lake Tahoe.

Tahoe Expedition Academy includes a fully accredited K-12th-Grade school, robust summer programs, and engaging after-school clubs that educate hundreds more young people each year. Our graduates are enrolled in some of the nation’s best colleges and universities and, perhaps more importantly, our current students are having a positive impact on the world around them, right here and right now.

Constructive Adversity at TEA

Constructive Adversity® is an experiential learning approach that uses adverse environments, as a supplement to learning cycles, to build character, promote ethical thinking, create lasting knowledge, and develop real-life skills. In this video, our school’s Co-Founder Taylor Simmers breaks down the Constructive Adversity cycle.
