Where liberation meets responsibility.
What is our ripple?
We are a place where learners are liberated to create their own paths, while leaning into full responsibility for their lives. Our mentors provide learners with a unique combination of practical life skills, daily intention setting, direct instruction, and self guided discovery.
FULL DAY LEARNERS: set educational and personal growth intentions, with their adults and mentors help, then we support the learners in their process of accomplishing their intentions. Learners join in our core classes, engage with educational provocations, build relationships, and have plenty of free time to explore as they choose.
CLASS LEARNERS: join us for the specific class, or series of classes. Drop off, or staying with your learner is an option, and help is always welcomed!
