We share this goal to maintain high academic and social standards, to motivate, inspire and model for our students as we work together to learn and become active participants in our community.

We are dedicated to fostering academic excellence through individualized, tuition-free instruction of core curriculum supported by enrichment and acceleration opportunities. To accomplish this mission, our goal is to teach integrated curriculum by utilizing multi-age ability groups for instruction.

 

Our Core Values

1. Multi-Age, Skill-Based Instruction provides a challenging environment where students promote their own advancement in the time they need to achieve the academic requirements.

2. Low Student to Staff Ratio for instruction with minimal turnover of personnel allows for more direct student instruction for the acceleration of students.

3. Nurturing Student Behavior, positive social development and anti-bullying policies ensure students are receiving the best education possible in a comfortable, consistent environment.

4. Community as Laboratory provides creative schooling activities, provides unlimited access to the community as a means for learning, and also instills the satisfaction of giving back to the community.

5. Supporting Classroom Instruction utilizing technology and internet resources.

6. Non-graded, Integrated Curriculum allows students to express themselves through their creative abilities, and promotes a positive self image.
