What we're about
Self-Directed Education (SDE) and Project Based Learning (PBL) is for homeschoolers and un-schoolers ages 4 to 16. We offer cooperative space that gives children the freedom and responsibility to direct their own education, govern their learning community, gain modeling and academic guidance from caring and skilled peers and adults. We allow the space for the unfolding of inquisitiveness and exploration. We recognize that humans are naturally curious, intelligent creatures and we respect children’s ability to construct their own knowledge. We trust a child’s personal sense of pacing and interest to guide us in being lifelong learners. Our cooperative model allows the many gifts of our parent tribe to bring strewing ideas, field trips, and STEAM activities to us all. Upon joining you are not obligated to plan events, but certainly are welcome.
We will have some yearly dues ($25 annually) due eventually, but for now just come, relax and be. Some events may have material costs, or field trip costs which will be stated. We welcome all types of families and encourage everyone to give grace, based on the fact we are all doing the very best we can in these very unusual times.
