Model/philosophy: The Integrative Method—using a multi-age, team-teaching, project-based, non-graded, developmental-continuum approach to learning, with the whole community learning together in order to be healthy, wealthy, and wise; the Natural Learning Relationships approach, which fosters healthy socio-emotional development through leadership activities, interaction with nature, business, dramatic arts, graphic arts, maker arts, yogic arts, culinary arts, and foreign language; support of the whole child as well as the whole family with experiential, social education
Special features: A versatile, year-round calendar in which students attend 4 to 5 days per week, 6 to 10 hours per day, with 6 units of study per year (these units consist of 7 weeks of learning followed by 1-to 2-week breaks, and 3 break camps are offered during the nontraditional breaks); whole-food, plant-based nutrition for the whole student body provided by Casa de Luz; connection to farms, food, and kitchen as integral parts of the program. Level 6 & 7 students will work on campus with learning mentors 2–3 days per week and 1–2 days per week off campus at an internship with one of our partners; partners include Natural Epicurean, Urban Roots, Green Corn Project, Karisha Community, YMCA, Earth Native Wilderness School, and Casa de Luz.
