In 2020 we closed the K- Elementary campus and we see this as the time to move fast forward to provide more children with the opportunity to learn in our pristine, peaceful and safe campus in the Redwoods, on the Land of Medicine Buddha property.

 We are ready to actualize our long-held vision and enlarge our school through the ‘Building from the Foundation Up’ Campaign. We will add a second floor to our Preschool Building that will accommodate our Elementary Classes enabling us to expand to 6th Grade.

 For more than 30 years, we have built a strong community of families, alumni and friends, who have enabled us to fulfill our mission. Please join with us to ‘Build from the Foundation Up!’

 A donation of any amount helps us move to the next level of our development, as well as provide funding for our scholarship program.
