Our School

Koan School is a non-profit private school serving students in K - 12th grade. Our mission is to provide a low-cost alternative for private education while keeping class sizes small enough to accommodate the diverse interests and skills of young learners in our community.

The school is located on a beautiful 15-acre farmstead, complete with animals, natural ponds, and woods for exploring. The main building on the property was converted from a single-family home into a charming 5-room school house.

Our Curriculum

In order to provide a holistic curriculum for our students, we place an equal emphasis on fluency and project-based learning, as well as personal and social education, including community service opportunities, and cultural and arts education.

In addition to academics, our students can participate in gardening, yoga, music & movement, animal care, theater, STEM Workshop, P.E., woodshop, and more! We also offer French and Spanish beginning in Lower Elementary, as well as Japanese for older students.
