The Wildwood Outreach Center works with peers from across the nation and the world to improve education for all. We believe inspired, research-based teaching and learning can be part of every school, public or private. Since 2001, we have helped hundreds of public and independent school teachers and administrators build learning communities that emphasize personalized education.
Professional development workshops, school visits, and ongoing engagement in conversations about what works in making schools better define the Wildwood Outreach Center’s offerings. Besides professional development, Outreach Center programs can provide technical assistance to new and restructuring schools.
Outreach programs are led by Wildwood School faculty members, and participants benefit from experiencing theory put into action.
The Wildwood Outreach Center publishes a popular Advisory Toolkit, a how-to guide for schools interested in starting or building on a robust advisory program. The Advisory Is Essential program provides guidance in developing advisory programs to schools throughout the country and abroad.
Wildwood has been distinguished as a Coalition of Essential Schools Mentor School to new and converting small schools across the country. In recognition of the high quality of the Wildwood Outreach Center’s commitment to public service, the school is also cited as a Leading Edge institution by the National Association of Independent Schools.
