The goal of Y4C® is to create peaceful, learning-ready, productive classroom environment through the systematic use of preventive mind-body tools grounded in yoga and mindfulness practices.  Y4C provides the school with an easy-to-use, cost-effective, sustainable solution to improve students' focus and readiness to learn, while positively transforming the school culture. The goal of the Sustainability Academy is to prepare students to be responsible citizens and agents for change, in their community and beyond.  The Academy is an international model for using sustainability as a lens for place-based education and service learning.  We maintain the highest expectations for academic and personal growth for all of our students and embrace the rich economic and cultural diversity of our community.
