An immersive, full day program.
Key themes from the Humanities, Mathematics, Arts and Sciences are worked with intensively for a three- or four-week period. Topics are drawn from those encountered in the Waldorf Curriculum between 6th and 10th grades, presented with a multi-disciplinary and integrated approach suitable for a "village school" of mixed ages and abilities.
Projects are both practical and artistic, with plenty of scope for research and debate.
Students are encouraged to undertake individual research projects and presentations where appropriate, creating space for peer education. There may be an expectation for students to undertake additional work outside class contact time.Topics are not selected from some academic checklist, but rather for the opportunity they offer us to engage in a personally meaningful way with the achievements, mistakes and consciousness of the past that have created the riddles and challenges of today and the opportunities of the future.
