SCHOOL AND MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDIES
An Enriching Environment Soul Centered Education Nizhoni
leads the way in education by providing an exhilarating program that places no boundaries on what
a student knows or what they can learn. We perceive each being as
a fully developed soul, capable of sensing and applying themselves
to the intricacies and complexities
of life with a dynamic awareness that creates balance. Nizhoni created a
"soul-centered" education to nourish and help manifest the potential of
our students. Nizhoni teaches that all humans are innately spiritual, and
that spirituality is the key to discovering our greatest gifts for
ourselves and the world. At Nizhoni, spirituality is the voice of the
Higher Self, the beauty of a flower, and the love of all humanity. This
knowing allows us to embrace all religions and all peoples, thus creating
new possibilities and expressions of communication and education for our
communities and our planet.
goal is to further push the parameters of education by providing our
students with thought provoking classes such as Peace Studies,
Spirituality in Life, Leadership, and Physics and how all of these learning's
tie together. A Soul Centered education naturally stimulates a
student's love of learning. A strong academic focus flourishes together
with an experiential approach here. Cooperative learning, environmental
awareness, a respect for individuality and global consciousness are all
integral aspects of our curriculum. Nizhoni is drug and violence free.
This focus allows our students to blossom into confident, balanced
individuals in an environment that is enriching and nourishing. Parents
can also be at peace knowing that their children are safe. Our teens have
peers who lead, integrated, creative, fearless and fun-filled lives.
Having such peers gives our teens positive role models as well as the
sense that they too, can make their dreams come true.

Nizhoni School to accommodate large international groups and greater
numbers of students who will be able to participate in our peace programs
and return what they have learned to their daily lives and environments
around the world. Our goal is to pour the foundation and begin building
the Pavilion of Peace by this November, 2002. The total cost of the
building will be 1.5 million dollars. To begin construction will cost
fifty thousand dollars. We will build throughout the winter as donations
