Course of Study
In the pursuit of whole-person education, Haven’s curricula and culture is designed to cultivate a confidence and literacy in the natural world through intentional arts and science education and immersion. Education in this deep and comprehensive sense extends beyond the classroom and is more than mere acquisition of skills and knowledge. It encompasses the whole of one‘s life. At Haven we take education seriously because we take children seriously; honoring the dignity of their humanity and encouraging them to actively pursue the purpose they were made for. For this reason, Haven seeks to involve families actively in the life of the school and in the education of their children.
Our courses keep the classical tradition in a nature-centric environment. The classical model uses classic texts across the curriculum, inquiry based learning, and real life practice to teach young people to contemplate and comprehend the world with the goal of finding their own place in it.
