Core Electives

Culinary Science

TREE’s Culinary Science class provides students an experiential understanding of the foundation of cooking and the interdependent relationship between food, health, and the environment. The students will be taught not only the process of food manipulation, e.g., flavoring, seasoning and preserving food, but will also incorporate the principles of physics and chemistry. 

 

Every class is a hands-on exercise in creativity and the development of confidence through a subject we all love - food. The Culinary teacher is both a highly experienced Vegan (and non-Vegan) Chef who will teach advanced cooking techniques as well as explore the symbiotic relationships between our modern methods of food production/agriculture, nutrition, food source sustainability and climate change.

Meditation

At TREE Academy, we believe meditation and yoga are essential life skills. All students at TREE are required to spend a semester each academic year taking our meditation or yoga courses, offered by teachers with extensive meditative practices and yoga teaching experiences.
