Prescott College is a private, non-profit, liberal arts college located in Prescott, Arizona. With a focus on social justice and the environment, the college favors intellectual exploration and community over academic hierarchy. Resident students at Prescott College begin their college career with a three-week wilderness orientation, in which students are introduced to the college and each other by gathering supplies and traveling in groups for over 50 miles. Individual degree plans are determined by students in their junior year, with suggested edits by a committee.
An experiential learning experiences is provided by the college. All of the classes are intimate and consist of a strong teacher-student relationship. I have never met a community of people that are so caring before.
