University-Model High School for the Liberated Youth

self directed learning

Did you know that George Washington Carver was the local “plant doctor” before he turned 13? Or that George Washington was a land surveyor in his teenage years? Or that Laura Ingalls Wilder began her teaching career prior to her 16th birthday? These teens were not much different than ours today. They were passionate about something, yet they had the freedom to pursue their passion.

You’ve been hearing a lot from us about…the Makarios Path to Self-Directed Learning...How we Approach Education at Makarios…breaking the Repetition Cycle so often found in traditional education...and the similarities between Finland’s top-ranking education system and Democratic Free schools. And these are all great examples of this model’s success, but what about the high school student that has struck out on their own, or (gasp!) dropped-out of school?

Comparing Democratic Free Schools and Finland's Education System

All I thought about Finland before hearing about their amazing education system, was that it is a Scandinavian country with beautiful tall blonde, blue eyed people who must be cold, like freezing cold, and that they probably wear fashionable parkas while sipping their coffee, talking on their Nokia phones and beating off modeling agencies. Obviously, I’ve never visited Finland and have no clue and honestly I never really cared to look deeper. So when I started researching education and alternatives, of course, Finland’s education system came up and I had the opportunity to learn more about this country, and people...boy was my mind expanded.

Would you be surprised if I told you THIS is the food our students are eating this week?

 

The traditionfood in Blue Ridge wildernessal backpacker’s diet is known for dried meat, pasta, beans, and grains. Not exactly a rainbow of colorful fruits and veggies! At Blue Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness our pursuit of the best possible nutrition for our students is constantly evolving. We work alongside a nutritionist to identify the optimal combination of calorie density, nutrients, protein, and carbohydrates to support the activity of backpacking without loading up on sugar and processed foods. This is challenging, because we also have the concern of weight as well as traditional foodie favorites of our staff and students. Read more

Adolescents Wilderness programs for Teens

Adolescents, at Blue Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness, experience an adventure that takes them beyond shifts in behavior to true second order change. We believe it is the depth of work and individualization that matter most, which is why we maintain a simple nomadic model. This allows for the greatest amount of flexibility to meet the needs of each unique teen we work with, as well as the peer group they are integrated within. The constant, gentle pressure on this model speaks volumes to our students. It reminds them of their own self-agency, power, compassion, responsibility, depth, and resilience.
