Thank you for your interest in Roots Nature & Leadership Academy. We look forward to getting to know your family!

At Roots we don’t just educate children, we nurture families, and foster community. Our admissions process goes beyond determining if your child is a good fit for our unique learning environment. What matters most is that we welcome like-minded families who share a deep-seated desire to reimagine education, nurture the whole child through nature and project-based learning, and fully nourish their child’s body, mind, and spirit. We are seeking families who want to get involved in their child’s school experience through attending school/parent events and offering volunteer support throughout the school year.
