Our Self-Directed Learning Pedagogy

Empower your child to take charge of their own learning. With our competency-based approach, they’ll build the relevant hard and soft skills needed to thrive in our ever-changing world.

Our Learners

  1. Are curious beings and when they are given agency, or control, of their time and ample relevant resources, they will develop the knowledge and skills they need to live fulfilling lives.
  2. Learning is an "Open-Walled" experience, learning is not limited to specific locations, people, or places, but rather can occur at any time anywhere.
  3. Define Success for themselves.
  4. Believe learning is a lifelong journey and value that we can learn from each other at any age.
  5. Value downtime for introspection and truly understanding oneself.

In Our Community

  1. Everyone is a learner.
  2. There is a place for everyone to belong.
  3. Our differences are an opportunity for learning, we are an inclusive community and do not discriminate.
  4. Really seeing the world (though travel) and reflecting on cultural differences and similarities is an important element in developing one’s sense of identity.
  5. Coaches, mentors, and accountability partners provide scaffolding for reaching goals and support for discovering interests and ideas.
  6. An equitable education meets learners where they are and supports them in reaching their goals.

Our Learning Experiences

  1. Socially embedded, we recognize that relationships are key to learning, by honoring this we are able to create meaningful and fun learning experiences, and also honor the learning that occurs naturally in social spaces.
  2. Are contextualized, our learning experiences have real-world applications.
  3. Are leveled based on competency, as demonstrated in practical applications, rather than solely by fact-based knowledge or age.
  4. Honor that learning happens in structured and unstructured environments.
  5. Are flexible to support learners' interests, goals, and starting points.
