Dear Future Barn School Learners,

We are working really hard to create an experience for you that is different from traditional schools.  Whether you are 3 years old or 18 years old, we give you the freedom to make your own choices so that you can develop a sense of self.  We want you to feel safe to express your thoughts, feelings, and needs while respecting the thoughts, feelings, and needs of others.  We know that developing your self-awareness and ability to understand and connect to others will be your greatest asset as you navigate our complex and dynamic world.

This sense of self also guides your learning.  We understand that your intrinsic curiosity about the world around you is where your learning begins. We trust that you know your best path for learning.  As you learn, play, grow, and explore in our supportive, democratic school community, we’ll help you highlight your uniqueness and creativity in your personalized portfolio.  As facilitators, we will also help to connect you to community resources so that you are learning from real life experiences that are meaningful to you.  

This school is different.  We want to provide you with a space to discover who you are, the opportunities to explore your life path so that you can live up to your full potential.  We see your value and we feel proud of all you have to offer the world. 


Sincerely,

Your Barn School Facilitators
