Real World Quests and Apprenticeships

Hands on learning for 21st century skills

Our Philosophy of Learning

We believe that: 
Clear thinking leads to good decisions, 
Good decisions lead to the right habits, 
The right habits lead to character and 
Character becomes destiny.

21st Century Learning

  • The latest in educational technology for self-paced mastery of reading, writing and math skills.

  • Deep Socratic discussions about heroes, history and self-governance to hone critical thinking skills and the ability to powerfully think, write and speak.

  • Hands-on project based Quests to master the tools and skills needed to solve problems in the real world.

  • Written promises and covenants that form a tightly bound community of individuals learning to form authentic friendships and honestly resolve interpersonal problems.

Learning Environment

  • Field trips and guest presenters to extend learning beyond the classroom.
  • Outdoor space with playground and open grass area.
  • Student led PE with different activities every week.
  • No homework or frequent testing.
  • Fun and enriching family activities to foster a strong school community.

Measuring Mastery

Young heroes celebrate the mastery of tools, skills and character by earning badges, assembling portfolios and taking part in public exhibitions.

  • Parents use badges to track academic progress in Core Skills like reading, writing, math and spelling and character development in “Learn to Be” Badges.
  • Electronic and hard copy Portfolios capture rough drafts, photos, video and other creative work.
  • Public exhibitions at the end of most Quests allow young heroes to present work to experts, customers or the public for a real world test.
