At the Attic, everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo of what is possible in education. We believe in thinking differently. The way we challenge the status quo is by stoking the flame of the child's intrinsic motivation, focusing on learning- versus teaching, removing grades and testing-which only narrow a child's focus, providing a safe place for taking risks, asking questions, working as teams.
The Attic children are curious, creative, innovators who see themselves as life long learners. Our graduates leave with a strong sense of self, armed with the confidence to lead, work on teams, problem solve and think critically. Our graduates have been accepted into the colleges of their choice and have received over $1.5M in merit scholarships combined.
We offer a unique educational experience for children ages 3 -18, one which supports a sense of self, a passion for learning, community, and childhood through our K-12 program and the Field & Forest Outdoor Preschool program.
