Welcome to Northfield
SINCE 1993, teachers and students [ages 11-18] have gathered here as friends in small classes
to learn to use the powerful and perennial pedagogical tools of the Trivium - grammar, logic and rhetoric
to study the subjects and events of the past and present
in order to understand how ... and believe that ... sound ideas and respectful actions always make a reliable difference in the future.
LOCATED a block from Friends University, the Northfield campus is part of a growing neighborhood of autonomous but inter-dependent micro schools [which we call cohorts] where every student can find an educational home - in which to grow - until [s]he is ready to go - into a lifetime of learning.
BEGIN your online visit by learning more about the cohorts and considering which ones might be right for you ... just click the links to their websites on this page.
We're home ... and you're welcome!
The Studium, led by Nathaniel Lutke, follows a calendar rotation of two deep-dive courses per month in addition to Math and Latin. A unique aspect of the model is to allow Juniors and Seniors who have demonstrated readiness to free up their morning schedule and attend classes at Friends University.
