Thriving in today's world requires developing strong roots. Bloom360 Learning Community is a school and adult enrichment program that provides a refreshing developmental approach to education that recaptures the joy of learning for youth and adults with neuro-diverse needs in Southeastern Wisconsin. Our learning community inspires each person to discover and create in a supportive, dynamic environment driven by his or her own interests.

While any person would greatly benefit from this developmental style of learning, it is critical for neurodivergent people.

Day School, Roots Program and BizPath

Bloom360's educational program is a whole-child approach incorporating the social, emotional, mind, body and spirit into all we do. Our team of educators, therapists and developmental experts are fully integrated, supporting each Learner every step of the way.

We offer three programs to meet the needs of neurodivergent youth through adults. They include:
Day School - Bloom360 serves as the school of record for Learners ages 5-21. Our educational model leads with social-emotional learning and sensory processing and uses project-based learning as the main curriculum.
Roots Program - Part time program for Learners 5-21 who are homeschooled or already completed another educational program. Roots Program Learners have individual goals and participate in projects and activities alongside Day School Learners.
BizPath - Adults 21+ benefit from Bloom360's customized and supportive programs to help nurture their strengths and interests with a focus on next steps in the larger community.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
