Engaged Learning and Belonging

All students take dance classes at Pine Point.

Children thrive when they are deeply engaged in their own learning while surrounded by a community in which they feel a sense of belonging.

Students at Pine Point are growing academically, socially, and emotionally because they are actively engaged in everything they do. What does engaged learning look and feel like at Pine Point? It’s an intentionally-designed program that’s intellectual, purposeful, integrated, social, active, and flexible in both philosophy and practice.

Equally important, the students at Pine Point are flourishing because they are part of a community that includes their classmates, fellow students, teachers, family members, and other adults. They feel a sense of confidence and real connection as they work together with a shared purpose, be it preparing for a dance performance, building a birdhouse, translating Spanish verbs, or reconstructing a hiking trail for a local land conservancy.

Engaged learning and a sense of belonging—with these two elements in place the students at Pine Point are inspired to explore and embrace every opportunity that comes their way.

How You Can Help

For over 70 years the community made up of the extended Pine Point family has played a central role in supporting the experience of the students. Last year, 483 alumni, current and past parents, grandparents, faculty and staff, and friends made gifts to the Annual Fund totaling over $329,000! Every gift made a difference in the entire program. Every individual and family that made a gift signaled the value they place on engaged learning. And most assuredly, each one of those 483 donors felt a sense of connection and belonging with Pine Point!
