What’s Our Mission?

Realms of Inquiry, a cooperative learning community that offers an accredited curriculum for grades 6 through 12, is dedicated to providing a supportive learning environment for bright and intellectually creative students. Working closely with faculty, each student designs a program tailored to his or her particular interests and learning style.

Realms students learn to welcome challenges and take risks. They gain knowledge, skills, and confidence through experience in the classroom, the community, the outdoors, and international travel. Realms graduates become life-long learners, leaders, and innovators.
