SOIL – The School of Indigenous Learning, Where We Invest in Our Children’s Natural Divine Potential!

Investing in your children’s education is one of the most important decisions you will make in your lifetime and one that requires great thought. We hope you’ll find our admissions process simple and easy to understand.  SOIL seeks students and families who believe in the school’s mission and desire to partner with us to develop lifelong learners who can discern and apply righteous family values as they serve and lead wherever God’s truth calls them. We invest in our children’s natural potential and promote families who build towards a healthy holistic community. We value the opportunity to work with families and students to this end and thus consider our school’s unique vision, culture and community when making admissions decisions. We look forward to getting to know your family and your child as you explore whether SOIL is the right fit for you.

Why SOIL?

Soil is where our seeds grow! Here we raise children for supreme success. Children ages 4 to 11 begin the day with a nutritious organic vegan breakfast followed by yoga and affirmations. The rest of the day covers all the core learning areas through exploration in fields like business, science, and the arts. Many of the activities are outdoors, and most involve hands-on experiences and project-based learning. Founded by veteran educator Dr. Sujan Dass, this school employs a revolutionary approach to learning and student success that works!

Our Curriculum

How are skills taught developmentally in an interest-based child-centered curriculum?
Reading and Language Arts are part of every experience! Whatever we do, explore, or learn, we keep journals and take notes and make observations and develop questions to investigate. We create shareable pieces of literature from these notes.
Math is everywhere so we look for it! Whenever applicable, we use math as relevant. If something has parts or units involved, or if there’s a profit potential for an idea, we calculate it.
We create things that show what we’ve learned. At SOIL, we offer project-based learning opportunities, meaning you do meaningful work with useful applications in the real world.
