EXPLORATIONS Charter School is one of Connecticut's first charter schools. Located in rural Winsted, Connecticut, EXPLORATIONS was founded to meet the needs of bright high school sophomores, juniors and seniors who were not being motivated in the traditional public school setting, but were full of potential for greater academic achievement. EXPLORATIONS reaches out to its students by providing personal attention, a curriculum that fosters high levels of motivation, and an environment in which students can derive ownership in their future. We believe that educational success is more attainable when the student is personally invested in the choices that will direct his or her future.
It is the mission of EXPLORATIONS Charter School to provide an environment that cultivates a positive attitude toward life long learning in an experiential, non-traditional educational setting.
EXPLORATIONS' program emphasizes activities which foster the acceptance of responsibility and the development of positive decision making and problem solving skills. We encourage students to develop a healthy attitude toward their school, community, work, family, and, most important, toward their own sense of self. Through family and community involvement, our students realize how each of us takes ownership in contributing to a better future for all.
It is the goal of EXPLORATIONS Charter School to develop students into adults who will be good citizens, good and productive role models, and giving individuals who will make a positive contribution to society.
