Rendering of potential outdoor science classroom

We envision adding an outdoor science "classroom" to broaden our students' overall learning experience. To be included at the outdoor classroom are wooden benches for students to sit on as well as a wooden podium for our teachers. Nature is a wonderful teacher, and outdoor learning is statistically shown to improve a child's overall cognitive abilities. Eventually, we would also like to add an Aquaponics system to further deepen each child's hands-on knowledge and experience of nature.



Rendering of potential boardwalk

Adding a beautiful boardwalk between our Hope and Legacy campus and our Pathways campus just to the north, would make a wonderful addition to the school property. A boardwalk would allow easy access between the two campuses, nature walks for students, staff, and guests, as well as easy access to our outdoor science classroom. This project would include three phases: a boardwalk bridge behind the gym parking lot extending to the back of the Pathways property; a boardwalk to our outdoor science classroom; and a boardwalk that extends behind the lake and ends in a beautiful octagonal open area with benches which will be just across from the Pathways facility.

In honor of your donation, you have the option to have your name carved onto the plank(s) that your support provides for this boardwalk.


We would like to add tamed animals such as a goat, sheep, calf, and chickens that will allow us to have a full domestic petting zoo for our kids to have an outlet to experience the calming effect of animals. It is well known that animals have a deeply therapeutic effect on children, especially challenged ones. For this reason, as well as for the educational benefit, we would love to offer a petting zoo on our property.
