Learning through Service to Others

Whether it is through reading to kindergartners, creating artwork to save the rain forest, or helping our friends, every student experiences the inherent joy in giving.

Honoring the Path of Each Child

Every child learns differently. As a Montessori school, we create an optimal learning environment that respects each of our student's unique path and pace.

Nature-based Hands-on Learning

Children thrive when left to explore in nature. As part of our curriculum, we regularly explore the 85-acre campus, our 1,500 sq. ft. tropical biodome, and more.

FOUNDED 1978

The Homestead School recently celebrated its 40th anniversary. It was founded in 1978 by Marsha and Peter Comstock.

TEACHER-STUDENT: 1:8

Our lower than national average student-to-teacher ratio means more individual attention for our students.

SUSTAINABILITY

Our campuses feature organic gardens, sustainable architecture, and solar panels that generate a surplus of 2 megawatts annually.

FARM-BASED PRIMARY SCHOOL

Our primary school campus, pre-k through 6th, is located on 85 acres in the pristine Upper Delaware River Valley of the Catskill Mountains.

TOWN-BASED SECONDARY SCHOOL

Our Secondary School Campus, Grades 7-12, is based in the charming Catskills town of Hurleyville.

HOLISTIC CURRICULUM

Using an integrated approach to teaching, we offer fine arts, fiber arts, foreign language, music, and permaculture education in addition to the core Montessori curriculum.
