School Notes

  • Our Early Childhood program is a warm and inviting space that is intentionally filled with natural materials that encourage imagination and creativity. The program follows daily and seasonal rhythms, fostering the development of the whole child by design. The use of structured, creative, and imaginative play lays the foundation for future academic success. Children develop social skills and creative thinking. Storytelling, puppet plays and nursery rhymes, as well as bread baking, soup making, and all-season outdoor play support language, math, and fine and gross motor skills.
  • The academic program for Grades 1 through 8 emphasizes a wide spectrum of student growth and development. Classes are small in size and led by qualified teachers who provide individual attention to each student. Each grade is designed to provide a developmentally appropriate academic challenge. Work in the arts and extensive time in nature are integrated into the curriculum to engage a student's head, heart and hands.

I have been a parent of this school for 8+years. I have experienced many changes over the years. I`m very proud of the way the school continues to grow. This school is a home to nurturing creative independent thinking, protecting a childhood, and developing a human that can consciously move through this world with independence and confidence. I can`t say enough about the relationships that are created over time into a family of unconditional love and support well after your years on campus. Paying for private school can feeloverwhelming and impossible, but I can attest that it has payed dividends in my families life! Well worth it-Best investment we made!
