Family-style living, outdoor education, and a hands-on approach to academics are unique qualities of our program. Our 3:1 student/teacher ratio provides students with 24-hour parenting ensuring continual learning opportunities. Skiing, mountaineering, camping, riding, work-jobs and studio and performing arts are integral parts of our curriculum. In grade nine students travel off-campus for an experiential study of culture and environment. Our community for childhood establishes self-confidence, skills, values and knowledge for students to lead satisfying, productive lives and contribute to the world.
