Hello!

Hi, we are Atiba & Dr. Scott and we are the co-creators of the GROW Community Supported Education Model. We are passionate about making Self-Directed Education (SDE) accessible to all children and teens because as former public school educators we recognized that many students were disconnected from their authentic selves and apathetic towards the learning process.

We knew both intuitively and through research that every able-minded child is born with an innate ability to learn. We also knew that learning is most meaningful when a person is driven by their own needs and interests.

So in our pursuit to find solutions for the children and communities that we are passionate about serving we found schools organized around the principles of SDE and Natural Learning. We learned that within SDE every child is able to cultivate personal and academic growth at their own pace based on their own interests with the support of adults and community resources. We also learned that SDE graduates have gone on to successfully transition to higher education, careers, and or businesses with relative ease and a greater sense of their purpose.  

     

Why Do We Hope You'll Help Us?

Most private schools charge tuition...we don't.

Why?

Because we believe that our communities and society as a whole would benefit greatly if every child was able to learn based on their own individual needs and interests. And we don't want our school to only be accessible to the privileged few who can afford to pay tuition. 

So we created our "Community Supported Education Model" to keep operating costs low and our impact high!

So, what do you say? Will you join our community by pledging a monthly donation, small or large, to help us provide tuition-free self-directed education? Every little bit helps and your solidarity will be rewarded with some cool perks! 

Much Love!
