PRIMARY HYBRID

Playing with Animals

TK-Kinder-First Cohort

This cohort enjoys a developmentally appropriate, experiential learning environment designed to nurture the social, emotional, and academic needs of our younger students. This cohort is perfect for kindergarten or younger 1st grade students who are seeking a more play-based approach, while still learning the core standards in the 'mandated' subjects. It is also a great option for students opting for a year of "Transitional Kindergarten" (summer birthday/bonus year). Academics will be fluidly blended into exciting and relevant unit studies that offer an array of hands-on, project-based learning experiences designed to stimulate creativity and cooperative learning while integrating the core subjects of language arts, math, science, social studies, art, and more! We use more formal programs for reading and math to ensure students have a solid foundation in these skills. We use a multi-sensory Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching beginning reading and writing to ensure students are ready to jump into reading in 1st grade and Math Made Fun for math concepts. Students will enjoy a variety activities each day, including morning meeting, crafts, art, stories, music and movement, author and illustrator studies, writing and book-making, science experiments, sensory activities, and so much more! Families in all pods are welcome to join our "2nd Friday Family Field Trips" where we venture offsite to local venues such as a museum, nature center, play space, farm, etc. Please see the calendar for specific dates.

Learning Pod

1st - 3rd Cohort

In our primary program, students take deep dives into engaging, cross-curricular thematic units that excite and inspire learners! We have curated a unique "ELAISS" program (English Language Arts Integrated with Science and Social Studies", which allows us to offer a thematic approach to learning that focuses on concept exploration and includes "living" books,  hands-on experiences, science labs, writer's workshops, cooking, art, crafts, projects, and more. To ensure students become strong and effecitve readers and writers, we use a multi-sensory Orton-Gillingham based approach to teaching reading and spelling. In addition, our engaging primary math program teaches math skills through a mix of games, center acitivities, hands-on experiences, and purposeful practice pages. Our mixed-age approach allows students to truly find their place in this learning community and allows flexibility with both academic progression and supported recovery as needed. Students will love making friends while learning about their world and the people within it. From people and places, to myths and fairy tales, to habitats and ecosystems, students will love our creatively curated program!

UPPER ELEMENTARY HYBRID

education, children, technology, science and people concept - group of happy kids building

*3rd - 5th Cohort

Our upper elementary program offers students a step forward in their academic journey. Our philosophy to academics at this age is "quality over quantity.' Many programs emphasize heavy work loads and excessive rigor, leading to stress, anxiety and burnout. Our program carefully ties both conceptual learning with skill development to ensure we fulfill the standards, while providing meaningful and engaging assignments that appropriately challenge students, building not only strong academics, but confidence and self-esteem. Targeted skill development in grammar, reading, and spelling is fostered through intentional programming using an Orton-Gillingham based approach and other carefully selected curriculum which allows us to indivdualize expectations and work load for each child. Our unique, program-curated "ELAISS" method (English Language Arts Integrated with Social Studies and Science) opens deep learning opportunties as concepts in Social Studies and Science drives topical learning and serves as a springboard for meaningful skill application in ELA. Families in all pods are welcome to join our "2nd Friday Family Field Trips" where we venture offsite to local venues such as a museum, nature center, play space, farm, etc. Please see the calendar for specific dates. *3rd graders applying to this cohort must be academically advanced

MIDDLE SCHOOL HYBRID

6th - 7th Cohort

Personal changes and challenges abound within this unique age-group, which is why, for many students, a small, supportive, community-oriented  environment better supports  overall academic development and mental health than a traditional setting.  Without the external pressures of huge classrooms, endless homework, and all too often, bullying, our students experience boosts in the confidence and self-esteem needed to be successful learners throughout the middle school years.  Our middle school program focuses on the core values of character, community, collaboration, and conservation. Academically, we meet students where they are, tailoring each student's expectations and work load to meet their personal challenge point and allowing them options for acceleration or recovery. Flexible seating, engaging instruction, hands-on learning, and ample social and enrichment opportunitiies make learning pleasant and...dare we say...enjoyable!
