Ages 7-12 Learning Adventure

This learning adventure is for children ages 7-12 years old. We spend one day per week adventuring in nature, and 4 days in our Montessori-inspired classroom.

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

— 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Ages 7-12

At this stage, the children begin to more fully grasp that they are a part of God’s story and they have been created with unique gifts. We create opportunities to help them learn how to share their gifts and recognize gifts in others. They begin to more fully experience how they are part of a community, and what it means to be a good partner and friend. We guide them as they grow in integrity and virtue in their relationships, both in work and in play. They also develop the ability to see themselves through God's eyes and accurately assess their own growth and potential.
