Discovery and Learning

We love to punctuate Summer days with a variety of lessons, learning targets, and mindful moments.  The experiential education model has become popular, and I can say with confidence that we practice hands-on-learning with an emphasis on Teachable Moments.  Being outside in a variety of settings is a huge opportunity to engage with students.

Please visit the Spring Break trips currently offered to see some sample lessons and daily Teacher plans.
