An Education Built for Today’s World
Our Day School and Home Education Program have nature as the backdrop to all learning.
We encourage and develop the child as a whole: their strengths, their quirks, their sense of wonder.
For us it's not solely about educating children; it's about nurturing entire families. We believe that the seeds of transformation in education are sown in the child, but they grow to enrich and empower the entire family unit.
The Academy is grounded in real-life learning inspired by nature. We educate children to become makers, creators and innovators through rigorous academics, practical arts and emotional maturity, preparing them to be valuable contributors to society.
Our school in the forest integrates the practical arts, humanities, math and sciences. Our practical arts include; music, movement, blacksmithing, woodworking, leatherworking, spoon carving, farming, cooking, baking, personal finance, survival skills, hunter safety and most importantly emotional resilience.
Our school vision is to establish a private institution spanning Early Childhood through Twelfth grade, driven by innovation in education, providing rigorous academics, and offering premier practical arts education. Practical arts is the hands-on application of knowledge acquired during the morning academic hours. Chemistry unfolds within the realm of blacksmithing, fractions manifest through cooking, geometry through leather working, and physics finds expression in the art of archery.
