World Classroom Experience



Are you interested in a World Classroom Experience?


Brochure ~ Application ~ Website

Dear FLEC Middle School Parents:


The Background

The World Classroom Experience (WCE) is entering its third year, and the excitement is building for the 2009-2010 cycle. The WCE is a unique class offered only at FLEC, in which a geographical location is studied in depth for 9 to 12 weeks and culminates in a Field Experience to the location of study.  Over the last two years FLEC students and their parents have traveled to places like Boston and Greece through a World Classroom Experience course. The WCE courses are open to all FLEC 6th -8th graders and their parents. Parent participation in the WCE is optional, but in order to provide parents with the opportunity to take a class with their child, WCE classes are held in the evenings.


The Opportunity

After years of request, the destination of study for this years WCE is China. Classes begin in February, and the much awaited Field Experience will take place May 20, 2010.  We currently have 23 people registered for the China WCE, however spots are still available. This is a once in lifetime opportunity, in which students receive academic credit for a class that will change their lives forever, and parents can enjoy this amazing experience with their children before they go to high school.


To Reserve a Spot

            Complete an application and include a deposit of $200 (applications and deposits are per individual, not family). The WCE will be accepting applications for the China course until November 2, 2009. FLEC students may be joined by parents, however it is not required. Applications and deposits can be mailed to FLEC or handed in at the front desk, and should be addressed to Josh Stafford, World Classroom Experience. For additional applications, visit and click on the World Classroom Experience on the left of the page. If you have any questions, please email them to
