About Us

School in the Woods is an opportunity for High School Sophomores/Juniors to spend a semester participating in a unique learning experience. Living on a 740 acre campus in the woods, students earn high school credit studying and working along side visionary scientists and artists. Their semester culminates in a in the creation of a capstone project. A project that students bring home and apply to their own communities.

At School in the Woods, students receive hands-on education in innovative design, social justice movements, forest management, field data collection, nature based art projects and farm to table preparation/production.

Over their semester, students become an integral part of a community. A community that intentionally works towards developing a greater sense of self-confidence and cooperation, grounded in the philosophy of permaculture and system design. At School in the Woods, students learn how organize people and design sustainable systems to help better society.
