In the course of one weekday, a student will sit quietly in Collection, attend classes, be part of a cooperative work crew, exercise their creativity in an art project, take part in physical education, eat meals with their friends and teachers, prepare for their next day's classes etc.

In addition to this, some days offer student or community meetings and special events such as presentations from visitors. Flowing through all these activities is the sense of community that comes from living and learning together.

Community Activities:

With one glance at the Scattergood calendar, it quickly becomes obvious that special, all-community events are a fundamental part of the school schedule. This is a conscious decision, arising from the belief that community does not just happen, but is built through a process of living, working, and playing together.
