Academics

Educational Farm

In the summer of 2010, ANC planted seedlings for an educational farm, marking an interest in emphasizing hands-on learning in the Girls School and Boys School.

We encourage all our students—not just those who take particular delight in hands-on, kinesthetic, product oriented activity—to connect their academic pursuits with tangible, useful activities. The Educational Farm provides our faculty with a wealth of hands-on teaching moments.

Our biology students take samples of the soil, analyzing its elements and measuring its pH levels. Our history students plant papyrus, just as the ancient Egyptians did thousands of years ago. Geometry students design and build birdhouses, making careful calculations to let the birds in and keep the squirrels out.

Our Educational Farm includes a lush vegetable garden, a busy hen-house, and thriving beehives. Each element benefits, and benefits from, the others, as well as producing tangible products for the students and community: vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers from the garden; honey, wax, and pollination from the bees; eggs and rich compost from the chickens.

Bryn Athyn Bounty

The ANC Educational Farm is part of a larger effort called Bryn Athyn Bounty, a collaborative effort between the ANC Educational Farm, the Bryn Athyn College Garden, and the Bryn Athyn Cathedral gardens. Bryn Athyn Bounty strives to build community around shared interests in agriculture, horticulture, and our local heritage.
