Blackland Prairie Conservatory & Atelier is dedicated to changing the landscape of learning and innovation in the field of education. Our school advocates for science, nature and the arts as essential tools in the academic journey. We modernize subject-based curriculum through the (re)vitalization, (re)newal and (re)imaging of the history and culture of education. We believe in ample outdoor time, connections with the natural world, academic excellence, and the invaluable skill of artistic expression.
Blackland Prairie Conservatory and Atelier is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation.
We house several educational initiatives.
Our primary initiative is to establish, operate, and maintain a day school dedicated to the education and enrichment of children. By specializing in emergent curriculum theories, Blackland Prairie creates an atmosphere that cultivates global citizens, earth stewards, and builds community friendships. Our mission is to encourage children to live and learn (play)fully, (mind)fully, and (art)fully.
We are growing a community.
For the 2019-2020 school year, we offer programs for students ages 3.5 years to Grade 3.
Our strategic plan is to grow from kindergarten all the way through high school, by adding a grade or mixed-grades program each year. We are looking forward to high school, where all of the academics and arts training start to overlap and blend together for a truly rewarding educational experience.
We are developing curriculum.
Adult classes and workshops in the arts, lifestyle, parenting, and outdoor adventures are in the development stages. Please let us know what you would like to see!
We are building relationships.
We partner with community organizations to be able to provide our programming to area schools and non-profit organizations through grants and scholarships.
