Mission / Philosophy / Objectives:


Sabot at Stony Point is a school designed to sustain children's quest for meaning and understanding, harness the power of their theories and ideas, and guide their inquiry and research. In an environment that supports collaboration and respectful exchange, we challenge our students to become effective communicators and disciplined thinkers, capable of solving problems in our increasingly complex world.

Sabot delivers a progressive education that is cutting-edge, child-friendly, and effective by designing experiences that take into account children’s developmental needs, changing cognitive abilities, neurological and social/emotional development, and the rapidly changing demands and opportunities of the 21st century.

 When our students transition to their next school, they go with expected academic content and skills, self-knowledge, and confidence. Intrinsic motivation drives our students’ curiosity and effort at Sabot and beyond.

“What was clear to me is that, like the school, the students are just as comfortable with who and what they are about. Not only do they learn content and skills, but also they know why they learn, and how they learn…My sense is that students who attend a school like Sabot at Stony Point will acquire this critical element of self-evolving learning better than most.”
Grant Lichtman, Author & Educator

At the heart of the Sabot’s vision, as it has evolved over the years, lies a belief in individual responsibility, respect for others, and a commitment to the community as a whole. These values abide today: we believe that a supportive and respectful community is the foundation of our school.
Sabot at Stony Point is a learning community where knowledge and understanding are constructed in collaboration with others; it is a democratic community where everyone teaches and everyone learns. We value relationships and cultivate connections.
