Where Potential Meets Purpose

The Pelican School is a microschool in Sioux Falls, SD, that revolutionizes early education by intertwining learning with each student’s natural gifts and abilities. Set in a nurturing home environment, our small class size ensures personalized attention, catering especially to children who learn asynchronously or experience learning disabilities. Our curriculum, rooted in Christian values, encourages curiosity and individual learning styles, promoting not only academic but also social and spiritual growth. We operate on a unique four-day, half-day schedule, and emphasize experiential learning in an environment that promotes teamwork, humility and stewardship. At The Pelican School, we prepare young learners to explore, question, and thrive in all aspects of life.

Holistic Learning Environment

Our educational model emphasizes quality over quantity in classroom time. We operate on a distinct four-day, half-day schedule, integrating academic learning with hands-on experiential activities in a nurturing home setting. This approach allows us to provide personalized attention in small class settings, fostering not only academic skills but also comprehensive development in social, emotional, and spiritual dimensions.
