Village Learning Center

Democracy - Community - Pursuit of Happiness

The Village Sudbury School is democratically run by students and staff. Students pursue whatever subjects interest them, in groups or individually, and learn informally along the way -- even as they play.

Keep in mind that our school is based on student autonomy -- self-directed learning in its truest sense. As members of the school community, students share responsibility for cleaning and keeping the school functioning. Decisions that affect the school community are made democratically. Decisions that only affect an individual, such as how to spend ones time at school, are up to each individual as long as they don't infringe on the rights of others. 

The following are a few of the possibilities:
