Adventure is out there!
Enrolling TK-9th grade
We are nature and project based, inspired by Waldorf education. We foster a love of learning and teach to each child's learning style. We empower critical thinking and emphasize old fashion values, morals and manners.
Classes start September 5th! Email to start the enrollment process today!
Because children grow up, we think a child's purpose is to grow up. But a child's purpose is to be a child.

4th and 5th Grades Teacher/Upper Grades Mentor, Brian Heise
I'm a natural teacher. My philosophy is centered in having balance as a student and a person. I truly love to teach, and I feel very lucky to have worked with 1000's of students and athletes in my schools/teams over the years.
I am a Waldorf certified teacher with over eight years teaching experience at a Waldorf inspired charter school and over 25 years experience as a swimming coach. I have a B.A. in Social Science. I'm a father of two grown children (both were k-8 Waldorf students). I have a love of nature, family, nutrition, yoga and Crossfit, but my inquisitive nature leads me in many directions.
My curriculum is traditional: getting to know your student and learning with them. Ultimately, it's about learning how to learn and helping students find themselves and their purpose_ nothing matters more than knowing who you are.
Kinder-First Grade Teacher, Audrey Mackinnon
I grew up in a Waldorf school, Kindergarten through eighth grade. I have a year and a half of experience teaching horseback riding lessons to children ages 3-15. I have led over a dozen girl scout troops getting their horsemanship badges and helped teach summer camp for three years. I have experience babysitting and helping at multiple schools. I have spent one year teaching Waldorf Kinder and First. I enjoy outdoors, especially when animals are involved and have a passion for teaching children.
6th-9th Grade Teacher/Guide, Carrie Stalker
I'm a dedicated educator and nature enthusiast. With a background as a barn manager and a four-year journey as a horseback riding instructor, I've cultivated a strong passion for teaching and fostering meaningful connections with my students. My teaching style is a blend of genuine care and a touch of humor, creating an environment where learning becomes engaging and enjoyable. My journey into education took a unique turn as I embarked on the rewarding path of homeschooling my fifth and eighth-grade children. This endeavor has allowed me to tailor their education to their individual needs and interests, ensuring a well-rounded and personalized learning experience. When I'm not immersed in the world of education, you'll find me exploring the great outdoors. I have an insatiable love for nature and often find solace and inspiration by fishing, paddleboarding, and gardening. Spending quality time with my family is of utmost importance to me, and these outdoor activities provide the perfect backdrop for creating cherished memories together. Through my experiences as an educator, a nature enthusiast, and a devoted family person, I strive to instill the values of curiosity, exploration, and a deep appreciation for the world around us. Join me on this journey of learning and growth, where we embrace both the classroom and the natural world as our greatest teachers.
