Our Compass

Our vision is to provide inspired and flexible, learner-centered, interest-driven education for tweens in a collaborative and kind environment*. We intentionally nurture the seeds of humanity, remain observant, and
practice open-hearted communication.  
*Please note, our space is a screen-free environment.  Our community does not bring personal devices for entertainment during our time together.  Our Minecraft Club meets offsite.

Our Values:

  • Children, Young Adults, and Adults have equal human rights in the community

  • Nurture our humanity with Mindfulness, respect, choice, voice, and kindness

  • Practice  Compassionate Communication to observe and examine conflict

  • Be intentional critical thinkers by using Socratic questioning


Our Goals:

  • Continually support learners driven by their interests and passions

  • Promote a learner-centric education environment where everyone matters

  • Facilitate experiential pathway for meaningful inquiry, learning, and growth

  • Expose holistic & globally applicable education components to the group
