Every week is a new adventure!

Brooklyn Apple Academy is an urban one-room school house.
We provide a hands-on, experiential, project based education.  

We believe that children should have meaningful experiences with the world outside the classroom.  Kids should be given time to play outdoors.  Students at B.A.A. are given space, inspirational experiences, tools, and resources to work on in depth independent projects.  

 Now enrolling for 2014-2015 Academic Year for students 5-8 years old. 

Check out our blog, to see what we've been up to lately. 

--We are located at Park Slope Jewish Center, steps from Prospect Park, and very close to public transportation.
