West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science

West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science promotes creativity, responsibility, and academic achievement through the comprehensive study of science. Lessons are tailored for students in preschool through 12th grade, grounded in the hard sciences, and supported by a hands-on learning environment. The 62-acre campus maintains farmland, nature trails, wetlands, and forests as outdoor classrooms where students can explore during weekly environmental-science labs. Differentiated instruction allows students to grow in a diverse setting; one lesson asks that they build arbors from spare branches, and the next dictates that they write reports on handmade paper from the previous week's lab. All the while, the school's character-education programs build self-awareness and self-esteem. In addition to regular lessons, the academy offers science fairs to showcase kids' skills and summer camps to keep the fires of learning ablaze—like the traditional end-of-year burning of the times-table tests—in the off season.

Customer Reviews

My son had a ton of fun at the Science Trek camp! They didn't really follow what they said they were going to do each day on the website- but spent more time doing outside activities which was totally fine with us :)

My son is really enjoying his "mad scientist" camp he is attending this week. I would bot have known about these camps or the school. I will definitely look at attending other camps in the future.
