Education / Schools
Student-driven, Family-Centered, Community-Oriented Learning
At School Around Us, now in our 53rd year, we offer programming for learners ages 5-14 grounded in holistic education, artistic expression, democratic decision-making and free play.
We bring together young people, educators, families and our extended community to create a participatory, learner-driven environment grounded in meaningful relationships, which expresses the world we would like our children to live in a world where all are supported to be self-aware and engaged global citizens.
As a Co-Learning Community, School Around Us serves Youth ages 5 - 13 who are registered (or will be) with the State of Maine as homeschoolers. We do this through Full-Time (5 days per week) and Part Time (2+ days per week) enrollment options.
