We harness powerful tools for self-organization and intentional culture creation, supporting learners to deeply engage with the world through their passions and strengths. Our learning environment embraces choice & freedom along with collaboration between peers, facilitators, and the local community. Read More …

Cycles of Learning
What do you want to accomplish today?
In our Learning Community, we discern and articulate what we want to do, individually and as a group.
What are you going to do about it?
Learners spend their days exploring and inventing – once we know what we want, we find the resources for it and create it.
What did you learn from your choices?
Looking back, we develop awareness of what worked and what didn’t, so we can move forward more powerfully.
How can you share it with the world?
We document our work to record, exhibit, and share our experience with others.
