ACADEMICS

Our academic philosophy is one of connectedness and wholeness. We believe that the very best learning comes through real-life experiences. Our academic program is tied to the projects that students will be engaging in.

CURRICULUM

Learning that takes place here at LOCAL STEW U will happen within the projects. Students will learn and immediately apply crucial 21st Century skills as they explore and develop their ideas. We offer a heavy maths and science program that is incorporated into each engaging project.

THE ASTROLABE

This ancient and beautiful nautical instrument embodies our ideals and goals as we educate and guide our students.

OUR VISION

We are passionate about creating a learning environment where kids can learn at their own pace. Here, immersed in the science, math, and economy of agriculture, high-school students will come to love learning while developing skills they’ll need for life. Discover a different kind of education.

OUR MASCOT

Wolves are fiercly loyal. They respect and support their pack members. They play hard, they work hard, and they show stewardship of their pack  and enviroment. Are you a wolf?
