Summer Camps & Schools—TREE Academy Offers Innovative, Customized Learning For 6th-12th Grade Students
Posted Friday, March 22, 2019 - 1:22 pm
TREE Academy is a new, innovative nonprofit school with a customized learning approach for 6th-12th grade students.
With no more than 10 students in each class and a student population to grow no larger than 190 students, the TREE Academy experience ensures each student is able to participate, contribute and discover their passions in an accredited school.
Individual student needs are met through two weekly small group classes, as well as a third class of two-on-one, individualized instruction with their teachers. This means every student at TREE receives five, two-on-one classes each week in all core subjects.
TREE Academy’s goal is not only to engage its students in the joy of learning, but prepare college-ready graduates. The school is Common Core compliant, and meets or exceeds all University of California A through G requirements.
TREE Academy offers a full complement of college-preparatory classes in English, History, Mathematics, Sciences and Foreign Language, with an emphasis on engaging rhetoric and composition.
The academy also offers a variety of competitive sports activities, as well as a wide variety of electives classes covering everything from Yoga to Taekwondo, Art and Music, to courses in Robotics and Culinary Science.
In addition, TREE’s Sustainable World Studies program offers environmental education to deepen and broaden its students’ understandings of their world, resource management, and the global eco challenges the world faces.
As part of the TREE experience, every student attends classes in LifeSkills and Meditation, based on the Inner Peace Program.
“Our endeavor at TREE Academy is to encourage, educate, support and challenge our students to not only learn as much as they can about themselves and the world, but to provide them with inspiring opportunities to discover their talents, humanity and passions. In doing so, our intention and heartfelt hope is to help them lead lives filled with imagination, meaning and purpose,” says Darryl Sollerh, co-founder and director of school.
Co-Founded by Paul Cummins (lead founder of Crossroads School, New Roads School and PSArts), TREE’s vision is to return the joy of learning to the classroom, surrounded by a diverse and lively campus dedicated to social justice.
