ECO-HIGH: PROJECT ZOO
LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE IN 2021-2022
FOR INCOMING STUDENTS IN GRADES 8-10
Verdi EcoSchool is proud to announce an exciting immersive new partnership
with the internationally recognized Brevard Zoo!
Eco-High, an innovative high school for students interested in designing their own educational journey through a place and project-based lens, is moving to the Brevard Zoo! Students invited to join the program will spend a significant amount of time each school week learning, designing and working on the Brevard Zoo campus.
For Eco-High students, place is defined as the immediate community and the primary resource for learning. Place can be the schoolyard, a neighborhood or a community; this environment serves as the backdrop for all educational experiences, providing context for tangible, hands-on and real life learning. The Brevard Zoo will become a new campus for Eco-High students who are passionate about diving into a high school program that features an opportunity to customize their high school concentration.
“In our conversations with The Brevard Zoo, it became abundantly clear that we share a vision of what education could be—and we are honored to enter into a partnership that will change what high school can be for students in our community.”

We are very excited to be part of a movement reimagining how we can use treasured resources: spaces, places and organizations to reinvigorate how students experience school.
