The Santa Lucia Mission:

At Santa Lucia School, we believe in the innate brilliance and intrinsic motivation of every child

Our approach seeks to cultivate deep bonds of connection between the student, the earth, each other and learning itself. 

Educators at Santa Lucia facilitate a profound respect for the developmental phases of each learner through deep connections with the natural world. 

In addition to math, science, language arts, social science, and nature connection, we strive to instill values of creativity, community building and peacemaking into all we do.

A Day in the Life at Santa Lucia School:

“Holistic education is a philosophy of education based on the premise that each person finds identity, meaning, and purpose in life through connections to the community, to the natural world, and to humanitarian values such as compassion and peace. Holistic education aims to call forth from people an intrinsic reverence for life and a passionate love of learning.”

-Ron Miller, Pioneer in Holistic Education
