Cottonwood Branches

(for learners ages 7-18)

Practicing self-direction, our Branches students (ages 7+) plan their days, define projects to explore, reflect on, and ultimately share with their community. Learners embrace the opportunity to investigate the subjects they are passionate about.  The branches program is based on the principles of choice and freedom along with the development of meaningful connections between peers, facilitators, and the community.  The structure of the school allows for students, facilitators, and parents to have a voice and take an active role in building the community they want to create.
