Daily Schedule

At the core of every day you will find freedom within structure. While our students have a firm daily schedule, every day is different because of the broad offerings of new subject matter and opportunities to explore provided by our projects and Quests. A typical school day starts with an inspiring or enlightening launch discussion, followed by a significant block time for students to work on core skills (about 90 minutes). Students have flexibility to move about and learn wherever and however they are most comfortable.

During that time they will typically offer and seek assistance to their fellow learners and Guides. Learners can also take breaks as needed, snack or drink as needed, and generally govern their time and effort to best support their personal learning. Our students are very respectful of the daily schedule and plan their day accordingly. Activity breaks are scheduled for the morning and afternoon. Typically we have a large block of time in the afternoon focused on our current project, as well as smaller blocks of time in the morning or afternoon for exploration into art, music, history, and other special subjects of interest to the students.
