Peregrine School is an independent non-profit school serving children eighteen months old through sixth grade. Its mission is educate children to be creative, critical thinkers. This is achieved by integrating the academic rigor of a classical liberal arts education with child-driven projects in the arts and sciences. At Peregrine School, projects are the basic unit of study because the integration of various subjects and, in some cases, of a practical goal, such as cleaning up a creek, make education more local, relevant, and meaningful than studies separated from purpose. In addition to the regular curriculum, all the children participate in specialty classes such as dance, music, art, ceramics, and chorus. Peregrine School’s curriculum, pedagogy, and use of carefully constructed indoor and outdoor learning spaces as the learning opportunities of their own are unique in the larger Sacramento area.
