TreeFort offers four 10-week learning sessions each year. Each session ends with a public Exhibition Night.
Summer 2022: July 11 - September 15*
Fall 2022: October 10 - December 22
Winter 2023: January 9 - March 16
Spring 2023: April 10 - June 15
*Note: Some teens may choose to attend a traditional school in September, before the end of our Summer Session. Advisors will help teens navigate this transition by continuing to check in daily. Teens in school will be invited to a weekly group Advisory in the evening as well as Exhibition Night.
TreeFort is open Monday - Thursday from 9am-4pm. Each teen works with their Advisor to create a daily schedule that works for them. Teens always have access to the following structured activities each day:
1-3pm: Classes*, Tutorials, and Independent Study

TreeFort teens come to the center when it works for them and their families. Some come every day and some come sporadically. Regardless of whether they are physically present, Advisors check in with teens each day and with families at least once per week.
When teens are not at TreeFort, they may be attending classes in other locations, completing projects at home, or working at an internship, job, or hobby. Advisors help coordinate all these experiences into an integrated educational journey.
While TreeFort has a general daily schedule to provide structure, we understand that it may not fit the needs of every learner on any given day. While at our center, TreeFort Teens are always free to:
chill out in the quiet room
eat in the kitchen
work independently in the computer lab
be present but not participating
