Why you might want to disregard the above lists:

  • If your child really isn’t all that happy at school,
  • Your child doesn’t seem to thrive in a traditional classroom setting,
  • If your child is not “the academic type”,
  • They don’t do particularly well on standardized tests, or
  • You want your child to find and nurture their unique talents.

If any of the above is true for your child, and you live near Lehi, you may want to consider Alpine Valley Academy instead.  AVA is Utah County’s 1st and only “Self-Directed Natural Learning Center”.

“Education is based on conformity,
human life is based on diversity.”

AVA is part of a world-wide growing movement to provide natural learning environments for children. According to TED talk favorite, Sir Ken Robinson, the traditional educational model followed by the vast majority of schools is based on the values of conformity, compliance, and linearity.  However, as Sir Ken says, “Life is not linear, it’s organic.”

In contrast, both Sir Ken and we the founders of AVA believe that LIFE is based on different principles. Those are the principles of creativity, diversity, and organic growth. That is why we are creating a school where children happily pursue learning for its own sake. Imagine a school where children are given the freedom to express their inner gifts of creativity!  We allow (and encourage) children to discover and strengthen their inherent genius. This effort is proven to result in confident, responsible, and achieving young adults.

So, we invite you to read more about our Natural Learning definition, and how it can benefit your child.
