Stevenson's proximity to California’s Central Coast affords a unique learning environment through which students connect to nature and themselves in thought-provoking ways. The school invites all students to explore their relationship to the outdoors, both locally and afar, by way of co-curricular programs, weekend-based trips, and extended expeditions.
Since its inception in 1993, the Sophomore Wilderness Expedition continues to provide the sophomore class and elected junior and senior co-leaders an exciting extended wilderness and leadership experience. The ever-expanding Outdoor Education Program offers distinctive land and ocean-based courses in sea kayaking, surfing, stand up paddleboarding, mountain biking, and rock climbing. Co-curricular in nature, these courses complement the academic journey, fulfill after-school physical education requirements, and expand a student's sense of place and belonging along the Central Coast.
