Eden Academy is a small, young, community based learning center.
We cater for learners from Kindergarten to Grade 12 who are too strong-willed, independent-thinking, sensitive, creative or energetic to benefit from the traditional education model. They are often described as angry, disruptive, lazy, hyper-active, withdrawn or depressed until of course they are encouraged to speak their truth and take responsibility for their own learning journey. We now offer adult education and homeschooling too.
At Eden Academy, we recognize that each person is an individual and when allowed to learn in a way that is natural to them academic achievement and disciplined behaviour is inevitably evoked, and not instilled nor enforced. When a learner feels inspired, loved, interested, relaxed and is integrated on the sensory and neurological levels, learning happens automatically and happily.
Natural Learning is engendered through a close relationship with Nature, in the form of regular contact with the horses, SPCA animals and regular outings to local favourite camping spots and hiking trails. At Eden Academy we are truly Inspired to Grow and participation in the school’s Permaculture food garden awakens important elements of social responsibility to sustainability.
The goal of Eden Academy is not only to nurture the spark of inspired self-expression and self-management but to send economically active, holistically balanced citizens into the world to be pioneers and leaders of tomorrow.
Peace, Love, Unity and Respect.
Two local businessmen have donated a Silver 2012 Toyota Rav 4 2.0 GS AWD and a small cabin boat to the school to sell in order to raise funds. All proceeds to Eden Academy for kids who dare to be different!
