Each child’s program is developed with the cooperation and partnership of each student’s parents. Frequent communication and readjustment of program and goals when necessary ensure that students are progressing on a desired path.

Led by educational coaches, students follow an individualized program. The school coach, student, and parents work together to build a program around the student’s needs and interests and the available classes at the center.

A variety of resources and learning methods are available to students, and teachers and educational coaches work with individual students to identify and pursue the most appropriate method for the student and topic. Group classes, independent study, on-line learning, audio classes, open university classes, games, research, group projects, field trips, special guests and instructors, virtual field trips and interviews are just some of the possible sources of learning that students can chose to engage with.

Our staff ensures that each student is engaged with a well-rounded curriculum with emphasis on the key academic areas: English language and literature; history and geography; mathematics and problem solving; earth science, natural history and ecology.

We have a clearly defined Democratic process that we, as a school, consciously participate in. Students take responsibility for themselves, learn to keep their word and be accountable to others, and to communicate their ideas and feelings. We create a safe, caring community guided by knowledgeable, passionate adults in which our children can learn and grow. Yet academic learning makes up only part of the Birch School day.

Nature and outdoor awareness are part of each day with daily outdoor time. We recognize the importance of unstructured playtime, and provide plenty of time for play: indoors and outdoors, hiking, playing in the woods, and spontaneous games on the lawns. Our students engage in healthy large and small motor skill development, get the exercise they need, and have daily opportunities to express that boundless energy that is the very meaning of childhood. The program is supplemented with frequent field trips to local parks, trails, and other relevant community destinations.
