Healy School will be a TK-5 Charter School in Novato, California. We have formally submitted our petition to NUSD and seek to open next year (2023-2024 school year).
Currently, we are accepting interest forms from parents. You can fill it out online here, or request a hard copy. This is not enrollment but simply expressing interest in sending your child here. Thank you!
Healy School will offer an inclusive, rigorous, and resilience minded education that will provide all students with the academic and social skillset to excel in school and beyond.
Healy School’s TK-5 resilience studies curriculum, which teaches the science of resilience, and evidence-based strategies to build resilience in childhood is what makes our program standout. We believe that resilience is needed for a constructive, and healthy life, which we all want for our students.
We also will have a robust science program, arts education offerings, and support for those who learn differently. Healy School is a place where our differences are appreciated and valued, as well as celebrated. All are welcome here.
