Our Farm to Table program is based on the study of agricultural practices in the Pacific Northwest through experiential activities integrating science principles with local opportunities. The program progresses through the school year following these 5 topics:
- Food Systems: how food gets from the farm to grocery to the table
- Agriculture including the history of agriculture
Understanding the history of our country and its documents is paramount to being a good citizen. We believe this is very important in our program. To that end, MHCA students will learn about the following:
- The Bill of Rights
- The US Constitution
- The history of amendments
- How the constitution affects the world today
- How to include those that have been excluded from the constitution
MHC Academy’s Spanish program is integrated into all areas of the curriculum. All classroom teachers are bilingual with the goal of students learning not only conversational but also functional Spanish. Our philosophy is students should be fully prepared to participate in local agriculture and other areas of life, which requires more than conversational Spanish.
Horsemanship is an all-encompassing learning experience led by local trainer Stacey Riggs of Riggs Horsemanship. Students who may or may not have ever been on a horse are taught so much more than just how to ride. They learn all aspects of horse care, stable maintenance, grooming and riding. Our goal is to have the student learn all facets of how to care for and enjoy any horse.
All students will participate in widening their minds to the greater world culture at large with this unique perspective. They will learn about different world cultures through exposure to celebrations in timing they are held in each culture. For example, October is Indigenous People month and information regarding this culture will be incorporated into the World Cultures Curriculum for that month.
