Our Academics

We are committed to a small program –  25 students in all -- who are supported by a 1:3 staff to student ratio. That means we that we can focus on each student's interests and ideas in a very personal way. Our classrooms and community programs are a place to try new things and fail without feeling like a failure. Our programs teach the rigor of academics while also encouraging resiliency and building positive self-esteem.

As a result, we provide a flexible, integrated school day that includes

  • Formal classroom activities
  • Individual projects that are undertaken in the school setting and in thecommunity
  • Vocational activities
  • Weekly community activities
