MIDDLE SCHOOL OFFERINGS

 

Our programs are mix-and-match to offer flexibility, convenience, value, and affordability. Blend for a full 5-day-a-week program, choose just one day with which to supplement your current curriculum, or combine programs to meet your unique educational goals.  Parents often comment that their children are actually talking about their day and what they are learning when at home.  Our students often recount their entire minute-by-minute day when asked, "How was your day?" by their parents - highly unusual for this age group!

 

Parents decide how much they would like to be involved, how structured their child's day will be, and how often their children attend classes, clubs, groups, before and after-hours programs, and more.  If that feels like too many choices, we offer guidance based on your individual goals.  See below for all of your options.

 

Core Program: Three Days Each Week

  • Mondays & Wednesdays at 65 Bridge St. 9 am - 3 pm

  • Thursdays at the Year In the Woods Program 9 am - 3 pm which includes experiential lessons on history, biology, entomology, ornithology, social skills, and more are incorporated into each day.  Getting outside is more important than ever!

  • Math: We offer 4 levels of math for a completely individualized curriculum.  Student to teacher ratio is currently a maximum of 2:1.

  • Reading & Writing:  This class explores reading and writing, as always, in a totally individualized and supportive environment.  Chromebooks are provided, as needed.  Student to teacher ratio is currently 5:1.

  • Academically, our focus is on the love of learning through exploration and curiosity.  Individualized curricula and attention help students to move as quickly as they prefer, while also learning as deeply as their interest takes them.
