Exploration High School's Board of Directors


My name is Nathan Strenge, and I am the co-founder and board chair of Exploration High School. It is my true privilege to build a transformational learning community where every single person involved (students, teachers, parents, and community members) feels valued and empowered. Through incredible  experiences throughout the educational landscape, I feel honored to create a community that uses flexible time and space with redefined roles and goals to get young people working on authentic community problems. I hope you join us on this journey to co-create your own unique learning experience. We put learners in the drivers seat - come for a joyful adventure to get wherever you want to go. 

To exploration,

Nathan Strenge
