Located in a restored mill on the banks of the Haw River in Saxapahaw, we’re a leader in the outdoor classroom movement, and our highly qualified, deeply committed faculty includes scientists, mathematicians, a composer, writers, editors, performers, visual artists, graphic designers, and a local (very local) radio personality–all of them highly accredited and committed to research-driven education.
Our faculty-designed Hawbridge Model involves differentiated, individualized instruction to foster academic, behavioral, emotional and social development; interdisciplinary teaching; place-based education; discovery-based learning; and most importantly, sustaining a community where everyone feels appreciated and included.
We are excited to announce that mobilization on our “upper school” begins the week of September 21, 2020!
