Thanks to widely-popularized educational and neuroscientific research, it seems like everyone is (finally!) talking about progressive education! We all want our children to be engaged citizens, stewards of the earth, joyful learners, and innovative thinkers—a radical idea when Green Acres School championed it in the 1930s. Now we know that cultivating this type of scholarship and leadership is more essential than ever—and Green Acres is proud to be among the original progressive schools in the nation.
On Sunday, October 28 from 1:30-3:30 PM, families are invited to discover what authentic progressive education looks like at Green Acres School’s “Hands-On, Not Heads-Down!” Discovery Day. The afternoon will showcase all that progressive education has to offer through a variety of challenging, engaging, and fun activities. Learn more here.
There's something for everyone at Discovery Day and this event is not to be missed. Current and prospective families are welcome, as well as curious community members! RSVP to Judy: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Decision and Terms of Admission
Admission decisions are made after re-enrollment of current students is complete in late February. We notify applicants of decisions in early March. We accept applications at other times, but applications received after the application deadline will be processed on a space available basis.
Green Acres School reserves the right, in the administration of admission practices, to determine whether the program, curriculum, and resources of the school are reasonably able to accommodate a student’s needs. While the School is interested in the individual student, in some situations accommodation may not be reasonable given the School’s resources and its program.
The application is a request for an offer of admission. If your child is offered enrollment, you, as parent(s) or guardian(s), must sign an Enrollment Agreement to reserve a space. Once an enrollment agreement is signed, parents/guardians are responsible for all tuition and fees for the full academic year unless written notice of withdrawal is received before June 1. All fees and deposits are nonrefundable.
Green Acres School reserves the right to exclude any student permanently or temporarily at any time if the Head of School deems any such action advisable, either in the interest of the child or of the school.
