Manzanita Institute, an initiative of Manzanita School, begins as a parent involvement, education, and participation portal. The Institute convenes thought leaders to advance dialogues around learning, youth engagement, nature connection, and healthy human development.  It is a space where global thinkers, educators, parents and students will gather to inspire and teach one another. 

The students who attend Manzanita School will be engaged in a new paradigm for learning.  As these adolescents grow deeply connected to nature, begin to awaken their innate genius and gifts, and passionately pursue the difficult questions of our times, they will need their parents to join them in this profound journey of connection.
