The Footsteps program at Blue Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness is a troubled youth program designed for co-ed groups of students.

Pre-teens thrive in safe, predictable and structured surroundings. We have designed our Footsteps program to support tweens and teens in their specific developmental needs. Incorporating solid routines, structure, and concrete experiences. This population requires extra “hand-holding” and additional support to ensure they feel safe. read more

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.

Parent Teacher Conferences at a Democratic Free School?

Parent Teacher Conferences at a Democratic-Free School? Our students have thoughtful, caring, proactive parents. Some of them are new to (or even puzzled by!) this unconventional way of doing school; others feel that it fits like the glove they’ve been waiting for.  Many of our parents have spent several seasons in a homeschool or unschooling mode, while some have been on a quest for alternative education in forms of self-directed learning, hack schooling or project based learning.  Whatever the case it is our pleasure to meet them exactly where they are along their parenting journey in a way that will benefit their student. After all, they know them even better than we do—their insights are unparalleled!   This connection between staff and parents takes a variety of forms. For example, we began this semester with “Parent-Teacher Conferences,” a time for parents to sit down with a couple of staff members and have a formal mid-year check-in about their student.    Continue Reading. continue reading
