Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education, Elementary & Secondary Schools, Literacy

Mission: To create and sustain a community of lifelong learners who are working together for the individual and common good.

Programs: Waring school's education model cultivates the analytical mind and the expressive voice, at the individual and community level. A school driven by diverse ideas and a love of learning, waring blends a progressive educational pedagogy with a rigorous liberal arts curriculum for grades 6 through 12. Students and the teachers are asked to take risks and stretch themselves. Waring's pedagogy challenges the traditional notion of a classroom through mixed-age experiences, experiential learning, travel and community service. Waring's educational process includes project based experiences such as camping trip and endterm, and has a comprehensive advisory/tutorial system of mixed ages. Classes are 50-85 minutes long and are often discussion-based and built around a single table or circle.
