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.
