"The island is a beautiful setting. The Academic Center is bright and modern and we were able to study all of the interesting wildlife around the island. I would tell anyone that they have to go. It is an unbelievable experience."

"I knew I wanted to be a teacher, but after my Beaver Island experience, I discovered what kind of teacher I wanted to be. Learning there is hands-on and creative. Everyone on the island, including students, teachers, and the Beaver Island residents, make up a whole community."
