Who we are.

Stacy James


Kara Lofthouse

Stacy James & Kara Lofthouse

Combined, directors Kara and Stacy have over 30 years in education.  From the moment they met in 2013 as they both embarked on teaching together in Folsom, they connected on levels that would only become more apparent over the years.  As educational leaders, both with their masters in education they have devoted their adult lives to bettering education for all children.  They have served as educational leaders both at the site level and district level and their knowledge in best practices and educational development far surpasses many.  Both Kara and Stacy opted to homeschool their own children in 2020.  In this unprecedented year, and bringing their expertise to the table, their passion for education has driven their desire to develop a community of learners and families that have the same passion to remain wild, and fill a void in our region.  They are thrilled to embark on creating a home away from home for homeschool students, and any student for that matter, to learn, build relationships and receive enrichment and core classes with a focus on community and self development.
