Our unique curriculum and comprehensive approach is about creating a meaningful, immersive learning environment. Our experiential learning activities bring learning to life for the students. We keep class sizes small and conduct class inside, outside and offsite, using the latest technology and the natural habitat to support learning. Our world class guest speakers, dining table facilitated dialogues, health and wellness and leadership training as well as arts and leisure activities round out a comprehensive education.
We serve children ranging from 4 to 17 years of age. We teach in 3 educational groups; ages 4-7, 8-12 and 13-17. Our program of study not only addresses the basic academic topics of math, science, humanities, the arts, and physical education but also challenges each child to find real world application in sustainably managing areas such as agriculture, oceanography, and economics.
Our education model varies and is adaptive depending on age and ability. By combining students of similar ages, our learning and teaching techniques foster self-directed student learning skills in small student groups while implementing educators as facilitators or guides. Together, studies have shown that students achieve at a higher level and demonstrate increased performance and enhanced social and ethical skills through teamwork, display greater psychological health and higher self-esteem, in addition to becoming more self-motivated.
Our girls will leave us with strong analytical and creative thinking skills, a passion to affect positive change, and a deep understanding of how all things are interrelated in the global ecosystem.
Our Dare 2 Make a Change graduates are poised to continue on to university, ultimately entering the workforce and community life educated, empowered and inspired to exert a positive influence.
