Our Educational Philosophy

Trackers Earth's curriculum complements homeschooling families. Our unique educational philosophy focuses on creating a deeper connection to community, nature, and social-emotional well-being.

  • Friends & Community: Kids learn together in small teams, building social support within their cohort. We teach skills of independence to empower everyone to contribute to their community.
  • Multi-Generational: Our mentors begin with our developmental curriculum while adapting to follow the interests of our cohorts. We teach leadership by fostering a multi-generational community.
  • Natural World: We get outdoors to thoughtfully increase a child's comfort and adaptability. We learn skills of connection and caretaking for the natural world.
  • Awareness: We practice being present with our peers and environment. We connect to how a child's unique gifts can inspire them to care for their community and nature.

Learn Trackers Skills

Adventuring outdoors entails learning with the seasons. During our journey, each seasonal term draws from the curriculum of our Four Guilds. Our Rangers Guild trains in archery and wilderness survival. Our Mariners Guild goes fishing while exploring our waterways. Our Wilders Guild studies wild plants and cooks outdoor over the campfire. Our Artisans Guild teaches natural arts & folk crafts.
