Information for Prospective Donors: The Need for Alternative Education
Hearthstone serves families who prefer its individualized, interdisciplinary,
hands-on approach to learning or whose children are not learning, not
happy, underserved or under-challenged elsewhere. Some students attend
Hearthstone from nursery school through graduation in 12th grade; others
transfer from other schools at various ages. Hearthstone also supports

innovative educational methods with other teachers and schools.
