Wild Nomads Forest School was founded through a partnership between Agate Private School, founded in 1983 (An Ontario Ministry of Education recognized private school) and Barefoot Bushcraft, founded in 2013.
Designed to foster a deep connection with the natural world, and a heuristic and autodidactic education system. Our students run this nature school by democratic process. Unlike the Push systems of education where the subject matter is already decided by arbitrary entities, Agate students use a Pull System to reach out to acquire the information they need. Voluntary attendance, Autonomy in Curriculum design, Self Graduation and Year Round Calendar help remove obstacles to learning.
