At TREE, we meet all A-G UC requirements, are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), as well approved by the NCAA. To our academic instruction and programs, we also provide classes in Life Skills to develop our students’ Social and Emotional learning, as well as courses in Meditation and Yoga. We also offer a wide array of Elective Classes and support individual student interests with yearly Passion Projects they themselves select, design and complete. Our Community Service requirement provides students with opportunities to learn about how they can be of service to others, as well as developing their awareness for the challengers human beings face every day.
Our approach, in essence, is to provide every student at TREE with enthusiastic encouragement, support and guidance in discovering who they are and what they love. In doing so, we seek to prepare every student at TREE for not only academic achievement and success, but to also live lives filled with meaning and purpose through self-knowledge and an empathetic awareness for the needs of others.
Our senior year at TREE we call the Senior Seminar. The essence of the seminar approach is to harness the student’s knowledge, collected in the previous years of study, and apply them to today’s world to explore both the challenges and opportunities. Additionally, we offer courses in Psychology, Sociology, Environmental Studies and Economics to further develop our students’ awareness of their world, and how they can effect positive change in the world.
