SHADE CANYON

A Public School of Choice

with a Holistic, Nature-Based Program

 

OUR MISSION

Shade Canyon School is a new public school of choice

with a curriculum inspired by Public Waldorf education

that will open with grades TK-2 in September 2023

in Kelseyville, California.

We will then add one grade per year

until we offer grades TK-8.

We believe that by honoring simplicity,

we will nurture the spark of the individual

and nourish a thriving community. 

Our mission is to cultivate inspired learners 

through an education that engages head, heart, and hands.

OUR INSPIRATION

Our Curriculum

Shade Canyon's program is inspired by an educational model that flows to us through a century of tradition yet dynamically responds to the place and the people where it settles.

 

This lasting education fosters dynamic thinking, creativity, and compassion – inspiring children to contribute their unique gifts to the world.

At Shade Canyon, we focus on inspiring lifelong learners, nurturing the whole child

with a curriculum based on the principles of Public Waldorf education.

 

OUR ROOTS

Long ago, high on dry and brush-covered Mount Konocti, a saddle canyon created a haven of shade. There, a grove of canyon oaks grew up together. Their thick trunks now spiral up a hundred feet, into a canopy that refreshes any traveler that passes by.


We want to be a shade canyon, too, where inspired learners can sink their roots deep and reach for the sky.
