We believe that  
  • Each child is a unique being, developing at an individual pace, and with distinct interests. 
  • Curiosity and creativity are innate in all children, and that a school can enhance the child’s natural drive to explore and experiment in the real world.  
  • Thought and expression develop out of experience. 


The purpose of education at the Options Program is to develop in young people the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to become active participants in a democratic society, working towards a just and caring sustainable global community.

  • Self-directed Learners
