Haywood Haven

Renewing Education

God has kindled a desire in the hearts of many parents to reclaim
HOW, WHERE, and WHAT their children learn.
Are you among them?

Is this you?

You know that God created our children on purpose and for a purpose. You believe education exists to help children find God’s “good, pleasing and perfect will” for their lives (Romans 12:2). You honor and celebrate God’s flawless design for man and nature. You see the dangers our children face and the responsibility we all bear to safeguard their innocence. You long to be part of a community that will partner with you in education and needs your contribution. Haywood Haven might be what you’re seeking.

That’s why we’re here.

Our classes

When you think about your kiddos first years in school, do you imagine them finger painting letters, learning phonetic spelling rules through dances and play, dressing up as the history characters they study, gaining math foundations with hands-on manipulatives, building fairy houses with all their friends under a big tree during lunch? What a coincidence! We share your vision for a fun, nurturing, classical education that brings nature and play into the classroom and takes the learning outdoors as often as possible.

Class Schedule

The focus for our 3rd through 5th grade students is on investigating, testing what they learn, and strengthening the foundations they built in early elementary. We love the vivacious, curious nature of these students. They inject a lot of energy into our campus life. Classes at this level still focus largely on hands-on experience.

Class Schedule

We commonly refer to these grades as our Middle School. Developmentally this is the phase of education where students move into developing logic and asking good questions that lead to knowledge. They work to apply the foundational skills garnered in previous grades and to deepen their understanding of God’s design and purpose for them.

Class Schedule

Also known as our Junior High classes, the focus at this point is mastery and expression. Our ultimate goal is that students will learn God’s “good, pleasing, and perfect will” for their life. During these classes, students hone in on maximizing strengths and minimizing weaknesses. They learn how to think critically and speak persuasively. They’ll discover their place in the world and continue to seek God’s unique gifting and purpose for their lives.

Parent testimonial

Our Principal

Welcome. Like you, I had a vision for my  children’s education that didn’t mesh with the options available to me. Haywood Haven exists because I wanted my children’s learning years to include rigorous academic training, classroom experience, and the opportunity to build community while safeguarding their innocence and the joy of childhood. It is a great honor and blessing to be part of building Haywood Haven. Are you called to be a Haven Builder?
