Dry Woods

About

Our Story

Our story began on the Ridge Road in Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory. 

The Ridge Road is more than a place, it is our home. For the Haudenosaunee, it has been our home for generations. Relationship with land is innately tied with identity, ancestors, and family. Our legacy as educators begins and ends with the land. As caretakers of this land for future generations, it is our commitment to creating a lasting legacy that drives our ethos as an educational company.
