- The Oliverian School adheres to a "three prong" approach that emphasizes Strength in Academics, Growth through Adventure, and Success in Service. We are intentionally small to ensure our students benefit from structure, personal attention, and a sense of belonging.
- Academically, The Oliverian School offers a carefully constructed college preparatory program for non-traditional learners, based on the intellectual principles of Inquiry and Empirical Analysis, Social and Ethical Reasoning, Systemic/Ecological Thinking and Communication and Expression. Students not only participate in traditional core subject area coursework, but also project learning that encompasses real world needs and applications. Core offerings include math, science, language arts, social studies and spanish.
- The Oliverian School's Adventure Program encompasses horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking, and ski activities. It is our belief that adventure education is a powerful way to accomplish objectives and encourage student growth in three main areas: the development of awareness and efficacy within one’s self combined with the ability to negotiate shared values and set goals among peers, the achievement of deep academic understanding and a capacity for reflective learning, as well as a passion for life-long fitness.
- The Oliverian School's Stewardship Program fosters a commitment to community service and learning outside the classroom, through hands-on experiences on our working farm and wildlife preserve. In addition to maintaining their own personal space and home, students are challenged to care for our horses and our 1,800 campus. As students progress, they are expected to reach out into the community and world at large to provide further service. SUMMER SESSION 2016 Our unique school environment combines an alternative academic program with a caring culture based on individualization and support. All students are engaged with experiential learning based on stewardship of the land and community as well as opportunities to explore through physical and creative adventures. The entire program, from dormitory life to the classroom experience, is designed to help students with different interests and approaches to learning find support, inspiration, and success. We are confident that students who are looking for an enriching summer experience will find the right blend of support, challenge and FUN at Oliverian this summer. Please consider the Oliverian Summer Session if you are seeking:
- A summer experience that will help you engage more fully with your learning and the world around you
