Nurturing Genius Through Inspired Learning.®
At Whole Life Learning Center, we know the power of genius – and we know every child has it. With the perfect balance of academic rigor with social and emotional development, steeped in a context of holistic learning, our students are set for success.
Success for us is not defined by test scores. Success for our learners is seeing them grow as whole people: people who work diligently, feel deeply, think expansively, do justly, and collaborate generously - people who can engage the world in any way they choose, making it a better place for all.
Holistic is not a buzzword for us; it's our foundation. Rather than compartmentalizing each subject, we build cross-curricular connections. This is accomplished through exciting project based and thematic learning: creative, kinesthetic, collaborative.
We have been hard at work exploring ways that we can open our doors and return to our campus as safely as possible in the Fall. We are committed to ensuring health and safety.
Here is a bit about what returning in the Fall will look like for the Whole Life Learning Center:
- Smaller classes (10 students to 1 teacher)
- Sensible, up-to-date safety protocols
- A balance of academics, arts and social-emotional learning to spark joy and inspiration in learning
- A lot of outdoor education/play in the gardens and shady spaces
- Hands on, project based learning
- A virtual platform including a safe online chatting feature for parents and students to stay connected during the fluctuating circumstances
There is more to come on our evolving framework, including smaller learning pods and virtual classes. We are passionate about holistic education and see these challenging times as an opportunity to dive into an adaptive model of education and be of service to our community.
Our Holistic Approach
We are a Pre-K through 8th grade progressive, independent school in Austin, Texas.
The “holistic” approach to education is nothing new - it's simply a natural approach to learning. Great humanistic thinkers and educators through the centuries (Pestalozzi, Tolstoy, Montessori, Steiner) have espoused this same ideal, honoring the natural development of the child, rather than a superficially imposed curriculum.
At Whole life Learning Center, we nurture genius. We develop thinkers who innovate, children who express compassion, and learners who explore and engage. We create a learning context where a natural inspirations drive the desire to learn.
OUR MISSION: We are a community working toward environmental sustainability, social justice, personal growth and empowerment. We do that through our youth and adult programming and by working together to make a positive impact, locally and globally.
The Whole Life Learning Center is a place where people of all ages come together to imagine, explore, collaborate, create, work, play, and grow as we learn about ourselves, our world, and the universe. Learn more...
