We aim to provide academically rigorous education and trips where students can push themselves out of their comfort zones.
Every three years, The Link School undergoes a strict evaluation which renews our accreditation from the Association for Experiential Education.
Additionally, Link is accredited by cognia (formerly AdvancED), worldwide leaders in academic accreditation of independent schools.
Our staff receive rigorous training, professional development, and certifications to lead our students in a variety of outdoor excursions. We also have a high standard for equipment inspections and replacement.
Every three years, an independent consultant performs an extensive Safety and Risk Management Review. A thorough evaluation of best practices on campus and in the field is performed, and organizational/financial structures are analyzed.
“The Link School is now in its 12th year of operation. As such, it has exhibited a distinctive learning curve as an organization and as a standout model for other experiential education programs. In that time The Link School has matured through continuous improvement in operations, student experience, and organizational structures. The program and the institution both have reached a level of maturity where its success is now measured not so much in large improvements in the first nine years but rather in established stability and continuity.”
