One Room Schoolhouse @ Red Barn Farm

At The One-room Red Schoolhouse, we take pride in offering a unique educationational experience deeply rooted in fatih and agrarian tradition. Our school is dedicated to fostering a love for learning in a supportive and nurturing environment.

Hands on Learning:

 We are committed to fostering children’s natural curiosity by providing them with immersive, hands-on learning experiences that promote exploration, investigation, and inquiry about the world. Our curriculum includes activities ranging from planting and harvesting crops to caring for animals, all designed to instill values of hard work, responsibility, and entrepreneurship in a safe and supportive environment. Confining children’s education within traditional classroom walls can be counterproductive during their formative years. Our philosophy emphasizes tapping into their innate inquisitiveness through outdoor learning activities. We believe that such an approach not only enhances their educational journey but also allows their natural curiosity to flourish beyond conventional settings.

Outdoor Learning:

We maintain the conviction that limiting children’s educational experiences within the confines of a traditional classroom is detrimental. Our school emphasizes outdoor learning activities where youthful curiosity flourishes best. By incorporating outdoor experiences, we aim to provide children with opportunities to connect with nature and develop a deeper appreciation for the world around them.

Academic Excellence:

Our curriculum emphasizes a robust foundation in reading, writing, and mathematics, ensuring that students acquire essential skills to facilitate their academic progress. Complementing our academic focus is an equally strong commitment to social-emotional learning. We understand the importance of equipping children with competencies such as empathy, problem-solving, and conflict resolution. These skills are crucial for success not only academically but also in personal development. Therefore, our students engage in various activities and lessons designed to nurture these attributes, fostering a positive and supportive learning environment where every student feels valued and respected. In essence, our curriculum is meticulously crafted to holistically support each child—academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. We strive to provide a comprehensive education that prepares students for lifelong learning and achievement.

Tuition:

We are excited to offer an exceptional educational experience at The One-Room Red Schoolhouse. Our student tuition for the school year is $6,000, with a 5% discount offered for second siblings. An early bird discount of 5% is also available for parents who pay their child’s tuition by August 1st of each year (only one 5% discount per family). In addition, we charge a yearly $200 book/activity fee, partially refundable based on parent volunteering at farm events, a minimum of 10 hours per school year. Contact us to learn more about how we can help your child reach their full potential.

As a licensed teacher of English, Special Education, and School Administration, Dennita has taught every grade level and served as a reading specialist, teacher coach, and mentor. She created a unique, faith based, one-room school experience where children thrive in learning their foundational academics in the morning, and their hands-on outdoor learning in the afternoon.
