We were searching for an alternative to school that would offer our children a high quality education and allow them to flourish to their full potential, while cultivating an everlasting love of learning. We wanted a schedule that was in harmony with our family’s rhythm, and we wanted choices for daily, weekly, and yearly scheduling. Finally, we were seeking an option that gave us just the right level of involvement and participation in our children’s academic lives, knowing that our availability could change year after year or even within a year. Simply put, we were looking for a way to educate our children that would give us quality, flexibility, and choice.
Unsatisfied with the schooling options available, we decided to investigate existing models elsewhere and then create an alternative that responds to our needs and those of many families in our community.
