COEP, which stands for Comprehensive Outdoor Education Program, challenges students in three major areas: academic skills, outdoor and physical tasks, and individual and group leadership development. The goals and expectations of COEP are to complement and enhance traditional education by offering hands-on experience in life skills that will provide the student the necessary tools to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Summer Treks extend these learning goals into the summer months. The program is open to both MCDS and non-MCDS students.
