Peace Valley School is a non-profit, private secondary school for 12 students ages 10 and up. The school is located on a 5-acre farm (Odd Duck Farm) which is home to our founder/director’s family, a young orchard, a market garden, 14 happy chickens, a dog and a cat. Learning will take place everywhere, but the heart of the school will be the loft in the farm house, which was specifically designed to be a classroom from the start.  The one room, one farm model was developed by Molly Lord-Garrettson.  Read our student-led newspaper, Peace Weekly to learn more about our unique learning environment. Here, students are empowered to see the world and make a difference. See our mission.

Peace Valley School is now accepting Applications for 2018-19.  See our Admissions Process and schedule a tour today.  Initial Tuition Payments are due July 15th.
