Nature-Based Academic Programs

We have 4 flexible "Bonus Days" built into our school year.

If we need to cancel a program for the day due to weather, road conditions, or for any other reason, it is deducted from the allotted 4 bonus days for the year.

If more than 4 days are cancelled for any one program during the course of the school year, pro-rated tuition will be refunded for any additional days cancelled. If fewer than 4 days are cancelled for any one program, your child gets to attend them as Bonus Days! 

Stay tuned for additional upcoming special dates to be announced!
