Coming Soon: 2023 Washington, DC Learning Journey

The Journey begins on April 15, 2022!

In less than a week, the junior class will embark on the 2023 Learning Journey to Washington, D.C. We will spend a week in D.C. exploring the city and its history, reflecting on the “American experience,” and speaking with individuals engaged in exploring and solving some of the most pressing questions of our time. At the heart of our journey is the question of how we find and pursue a life of meaning and purpose. 

The Mount Madonna School junior class will keep a blog with their reflections about our experiences. We invite you to read along as we embark on this wonderful journey.
