Our mission as a school community is to promote ethical behavior through educational experiences and social activism.

We give our students the tools to become good world citizens who contribute to making the world a better place.

We believe in providing our children with a welcoming environment and a program that is both spiritually fulfilling and fun.  Sometimes kids just need to be kids! 

2022-2023 School Year

The 2022-2023 school year will begin in September. We will hold classes at Green Hedges School during our platforms. We have the following classes available for students this year: 

Grades K-4: Every Day is Earth Day 
Every day is a day to think about taking care of our Earth.  Learn about conserving energy, recycling and using less, and the frailty of ecosystems.  Discover how all creatures serve a purpose on Earth. 

Grades 5+: Comparative Religions
A respectful study of major world religions, comparing them to each other and Ethical Culture.  Field trips to different houses of worship are frequent in this class.

We're always happy to have new students join our classes. If you'd like to join us, meet us on Sunday at 11:00 AM at Green Hedges School
