Supporting families seeking options for their students, the center offers full time and part-time student-led schooling, classes, on-going programs, mentoring, portfolio development, a resource center, curriculum support and teacher consultations.
Our focus is a holistic approach to learning, and our priority is to support child-led interests and activities. Individualized curriculum, combined with authentic participation in community life form the core of the program.
We support and encourage young people to find their passions and engage with the world. We provide connections and resources to enable students to define their goals and act on them.
It is with great excitement that we invite young people to engage in vibrant, creative and connected learning, supported by knowledgeable and caring mentors and teachers.
