"The long years of the world's modern school systems are sadly replacing the time required for actual childhood and the experience required for full human development." -Ben Walker.
A Gap-Year for your child: If your child is age 7 to 10 and attends a regular school, we are suggesting that you consider the benefits of taking a year off, and then returning to regular schooling during the following year.
Contact Ben and Claire with the form below to discuss replacing a year of your child's early-elementary school with a year of historic human childhood.
Besides scheduling many of your child's school days at Tribal Wisdom Academy, parents may also consider registering as homeschoolers with the state of California. Find out how at https://hslda.org .
Tribal Wisdom Academy is a "Transitional Gap Year" that adds actual real-world experience to the K-12 desk sit. Founders Ben and Claire Walker agree with parents that actual child development is the key that unlocks actual adulthood.
"It’s the strong, healthy, inquisitive and skillful children of the pioneer days who became the adults that built America. We will need those people today, to merge with future technologies and lead world populations sustainably forward." - Ben Walker
Please Note: These TWA transitional school years are not for children who have behavior issues. Our student/staff ratio only allows us to supervise and mentor children who can be safely trusted with real tools, fire, prehistoric weapons, and real-world responsibility.
