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.
The Annual Giving program at Green Acres School is our primary philanthropic effort. Our remarkable community shows long-standing support for this campaign with active participation each year.
Green Acres relies on Annual Giving income to provide approximately 5% of our operating budget, which helps to provide for financial aid, professional development, classroom materials, library acquisition, and much more. It also provides the difference between tuition revenue and the actual cost of educating a student.
Fund excellence with your gift today! Gifts of all sizes make a difference and are deeply appreciated.
The Green Acres Annual Giving program funds the heart of the school. It allows our children of today to become the critical thinkers and leaders of tomorrow.
All gifts and pledges to the Annual Giving Program are due by June 30th.
