HOW MUCH IS SCHOOL TUITION?
We are a public charter school funded with tax dollars. Other than possible supply fees and the like, attendance at our school is no cost to our families.
CAN I SCHEDULE A SCHOOL VISIT?
Please! We look forward to welcoming all of our prospective families to our facility. Though it is not yet secured, we intend to begin tours in the spring of 2021.
WILL YOU HAVE A VIRTUAL OPTION DUE TO COVID-19?
Though we are planning to open in the summer of 2021, we will be prepared to offer a variety of programming to safely address the needs of our learners in light of the pandemic should that be necessary.
WILL ALL TEACHERS BE LICENSED AND CERTIFIED IN...?
According to Indiana Law, 1/10th of a school's faculty/staff may be unlicensed. However, in the event any of our staff lack these qualifications, they will be working toward earning them through various programs available as well as through school-sponsored professional development.
WHY WALDORF, MONTESSORI, NATURE-BASED...?
There are many reasons, all of which are based in research. The outcomes of these models are consistently successful, beneficial, and gaining more traction in the US as a wonderful alternative to traditional education that has been enjoyed for some time in other countries. It is not an easy task marrying pedagogies that can, at times, diverge from one another; but we believe this article sums up our reasoning very well -- the children need both. Thankfully, we have a talented and skilled team of educators who are passionate about bringing this education to our children. Don't just take our word for it -- we encourage you to investigate for your yourselves!
WILL THE SCHOOL HAVE SPECIAL EDUCATION RESOURCES?
Yes, we will do our best to have all necessary resources available to meet the needs of all of our learners and hope that families will utilize the services of some of our partnerships for their learners. These alternatives, such as art, music, and nature-based approaches, are in alignment with our mission and vision; and we strongly believe in their benefits.
WHAT ABOUT INDIANA ACADEMIC STANDARDS?
Though our program looks different than most, we assure you that we will still meet all Indiana Academic Standards. The order may be different, but every learner will have the tools they need by the time they graduate.
