While academics are important, our program is unique in that we also emphasize socio-emotional growth, relationship-building, and curiosity and respect for the natural world. To facilitate this growth, we rely on weekly hikes, daily free time in nature (rain-or-shine), and 1-2 field trips per month to encourage students to connect with their bodies, their peers, and the world around them.

School is in session September-mid June, 8:45 am – 3:00 pm. Teachers are expected to come in a bit earlier to prepare and sometimes stay a bit later to chat with parents, and to attend a reasonable number of meetings and events.
