Scent of Water
(grades K-8th)

T-W-R 9 am - 3 pm

This program offers "the whole story for the whole child" to support home schooling families in their quest to align with God's design for their children. We see God's design for teaching and learning as Biblical, Relational, Integral and Experiential.

Qualified educators invite your child to engage deeply with the Creator and His creation. With a strong outdoor education focus, Scent of Water classes reflect all school subjects while also celebrating the "emergent curriculum" that springs from the interests, ideas and explorations of the students themselves.

What parents are saying...

I appreciate the biblical worldview. Experiential, Relational outdoor learning! I recommend it routinely to others seeking an alternative to traditional public / private / homeschool education.
