12/2: Both Homestead campuses will be open on time. Eldred, Liberty, Livingston Manor, and Roscoe are on 2-hour delays.


The Homestead School serves children ages 3 to 14 (Pre-Kindergarten to 8th grade). Our mission is to nurture self-motivated students whose love of learning will carry through into a lifetime of responsible and constructive contributions to the well-being of their fellow humans and the Earth.

Early Childhood (PreK & K)

Our Early Childhood program provides children ages 3 to 6 years old with a safe, nurturing, and respectful environment to develop concentration, focus, and self-discipline. Here we plant the seeds of literacy, numeracy, self-care as well as care for others and the environment.

Montessori Lower Elementary Students Science

Lower Elementary (Grades 1-3)

In Lower Elementary, our first to third graders develop their sense of fairness, justice, and exploration. Because of our three-year continuum, each student reveals their fullest potential at their own speed as we explore the universe, the dawn of time, and one’s own role in “cosmic age” together.

Upper Elementary (Grades 4-6)

In Upper Elementary, we increasingly dive deeper into our integrated curriculum as we learn about the story of humans, human culture, and human history. We continue to grow as individuals and as a community through services to others. In sixth grade, we start our exciting new 3-year Permaculture curriculum.

Middle School (Grades 7-8)

Our Middle School students thrive in a bully-free, self-esteem boosting environment that prepares them for life as they transition from a teenager into adulthood by successfully running micro-businesses and other project-based work, continuing our Permaculture studies, and humanitarian work.
