Freedom. Empowerment. Responsibility.
We support self-directed education, and are akin to Sudbury Valley School, The Circle School, and dozens of other democratic schools worldwide.
We will serve the Raleigh/Durham area of North Carolina starting in Fall 2018.
What makes our school unique?
Students have abundant time to explore the world and follow their interests.
Students have the freedom to associate with people of all ages.
Students and staff have a voice in the School Meeting, the school's legal governing body.
Students and staff are equally accountable to the Judicial Committee for upholding the school's laws.
There are no tests, grades, or required curricula. Classes are held at student request only.
We believe that people learn best when motivated by their own interest. Left to their own devices, students will inevitably explore the world, create, and follow their curiosity wherever it leads.
