Imagine spending school days in the heart of Manistee National Forest! Nature study is just steps away from the school room door on our 10-acre, wooded campus. Just minutes away kids can see life in a river basin, and the National Forest system's only wildflower sanctuary, where one can find a small spring-fed lake and wetland area, a creek and riparian marshy areas, oak forest, pine plantations, and an early successional old farm site. The North Country National Scenic Trail that cuts across seven states is right nearby! We enjoy a quiet school day where kids find places to explore just out the door! And each week -- exploratory classes on Discovery Thursday for 3-6th Grade!
NOTE: Elementary Students participating in our Homeschool Discovery Thursday will take these classes at our Newaygo campus.
7th to 12th Grade
Robotics, a tech lab, great work spaces, and a gymnasium! It's a combination that allows students to discover practical skills alongside traditional classes. Younger classes enjoy a daily project hour. Junior and senior high students enjoy electives they've selected on Discovery Thursday for Jr/Sr and the other three days focus on core classes in an interactive format.
NOTE: Junior/Senior High Students participating in our Homeschool Discovery Thursday will take these classes at our Howard City campus.
