More Info

Students at Extera Public Schools are Trailblazers! They embody the pioneer spirit of exploration and discovery — whether studying in their classroom or hiking in a National park. They face life with curiosity and meet challenges with courage, recognizing that taking smart risks often leads to big rewards.

These "Trailblazer" traits are instilled in Extera students each day, in and out of the classroom. Multi-day camping excursions provide students the opportunity to hone these skills, as they connect with nature and explore how that connection extends to all living things. Nature's outdoor classroom provides our students with hands-on learning in biology, astronomy, geography, social studies, and more. Students embark on journeys of self-discovery where they develop their leadership skills and strengthen their relationships with themselves, one another, and the world around them.

Join us! You can help Blaze the Trail that allows our students to experience these invaluable lessons. Your tax-deductible contribution will provide equipment, scholarships, or even transportation to destinations like the Santa Monica Mountains, the Channel Islands, or Yosemite National Park. Your gift – your connection – will make a huge difference in the lives of our students. Thank you for your generosity!
