Progressive Education
for Children in Preschool
through 8th Grade

We’re committed to intellectually challenging education that develops children’s capacities for creative problem-solving, collaboration, and disciplined research; cultivates the respectful exchange of ideas; and brings meaning and joy to learning.

School is for Learning to Live, Not Just for Learning

"It's like there's two doors and they both lead to hallways and one has treasure in it and that's good for you and only you. The other hallway has people who are stuck in it and they can't get out but if you let them out they'll be free. But you can only open one door. So the empathic decision would be to find a 3rd door." Paul, Age 8

"We call for a set of 21st century skills that children already possess when they walk through the school door. And we set on a course that systematically destroys them. But we don’t have to make that choice. Because children arrive with an understanding that there’s a strength in this playful disposition that gives them all the power they need to be able to open 3rd doors. And, we can choose to help them do it."
