Welcome to the neighborhood: Root Academy
Root Academy has opened a school at 6210 5th Ave NW in Ballard’s West Woodland neighborhood. The school currently serves Preschool – 3rd grade and will be adding a 4th – 6th grade class beginning Fall 2018. This location is the former parish house for Calvary Ballard Church, see history here.
Root Academy is founded on the idea that all children are capable of developing to their highest potential. The integration of Montessori and Japanese styles of education enables students of all abilities to learn how to discover themselves. Daily martial arts practice builds confidence as well as a strong sense of self.
A foundation of martial arts, Japanese philosophy, and Montessori education encourages each student to follow a self-directed but gently guided path. A culture that inspires independent thinking, creative problem solving, and a deep sense of empathy and connection prepares students to actively engage with their local community and the world surrounding them.
