A Day in the Life

..

If you couldn’t tell from the rest of the website, you certainly can from our blog updates that this is not your typical school! Our goal is to provide context to the academics that are traditionally taught in a classroom setting. We usually start our day with academic time that is used for more directed learning, research, and development. Afternoons are spent applying those lessons and ideas to the farm or exploring the world around us. We like to expose our students to a wide range of experiences and opportunities for careers.

As you can see, we get pretty busy, so our blogs may be daily or weekly depending the craziness of the week! We may even get quite a bit behind (as we are now). Keep up with our adventures on Facebook and Instagram which we update much more frequently! Enjoy the experience. If you want to come along for the actual ride, visit our application page.
