BUILDING SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES ONE SCHOOL AT A TIME

THE VERNARE MISSION

To produce “scholar citizens”—students demonstrating strong academic achievement, environmental stewardship and advancement of community.


This mission is based on three objectives:

  1. To provide a rigorous K-12 education preparing students for both the highest levels of academic achievement and preparation for entry and success in the workforce
  2. To provide families of students the tools to support and foster the academic, service and character development of their students; and
  3. To serve as a neighborhood anchor promoting economic and social stability and development within the communities in which these schools reside.

 

Sustainability will be the hallmark of our school culture. Students attending Vernare Learning schools will enjoy green campuses that are designed to reduce the ecological footprint and provide healthy learning and play spaces. The curriculum will incorporate a holistic orientation to environmental conservation, with a focus on preservation, restoration and management.


This hands-on approach will help ground students in scientific inquiry and foster a collaborative learning environment. Vernare Learning schools start at the elementary level and expand to K-12 by adding one grade level each year.
