Early Education Shapes Their Lives

The Elementary School at Chewonki is an independent school for children in grades 3-7 (with plans to expand to grade 8 in 2018), modeling the best of innovative teaching, integrated academic practice, and experiential learning.

Extending our 100-year tradition of educating children and young adults in the outdoors, we have designed a place-based elementary program informed by current research and reflecting best practices for high-impact teaching and learning.

Our motivated students arrive each day ready for challenging and engaging learning experiences. We educate the whole child and meet individuals where they are academically, developmentally, and socially.
