Join us as we embark on an exciting learning adventure! Terebinth students will learn subject matter through outdoor education, farming and a curriculum built to maximize connections using emergent lessons springing from the shared lives of children, their families, and their teachers. 

  • Students will be working outside or in a barn during their day at Edgegrove Farm. Learning spaces include: pond, creek, pastures, fields, and barns.

LEARNING SPACES

  • Your worldview shapes your identity. 

  • We are God’s beloved. 

  • A Biblical worldview tells us that God designed each of us uniquely and with purpose.

  • Whole and true flourishing comes from a redeemed relationship with God.

  • God is the sustainer of all things.

  • Choices have results.

  • Worldview is a set of beliefs through which you interpret the world and out of which you act.

  • Scripture is the foundation of a Biblical worldview.

  • God calls us to be wise and faithful stewards. 

  • Creation reflects the characteristics of God. 

  • and more!

How can kids learn all these subjects outside?

Because the subjects are integrated, students will be reading books, writing and engaging with their physical environment in a way that helps build knowledge in meaningful ways. Lessons will be responsive. Students are expected to connect to their curiosity and ask questions that will drive their learning.

Where will my child use the restroom?

Students will have access to an indoor bathroom that is a single stall with a locking door. Normal safety protocols will be followed.

Can I stay with my child?

This is a drop-off program. However, if you would like to stay, we heartily welcome you. Please let us know in advance. You will only be able to help if we have a background check on file for you.
