We believe that a balanced education supports children to be well-rounded, self-motivated and independent people. Our program teaches strong academics, enhanced with practical life skills, independent thinking, community interaction, and self-care. Beyond the BC curriculum our students learn skills in agriculture, cooking, outdoor regional studies, sustainability, music, drama and Art. They experience smaller class sizes allowing for individual attention. And learn by doing, in an environment that is fun, with a purpose.
We provide extra time outdoors, more time to learn concepts, less rigorous testing,
and meet all of the BC Curriculum requirements.
