Our vision is simple - To create a learning community for curious, quirky homeschooled children in Horry and Georgetown counties.
Our mission is to engage the whole child - intellectual, social, emotional, personal, and ethical.
Our goal is to provide an academically challenging environment with small group instruction, passion-based projects, place-based learning opportunities, social-emotional guidance, and optional tutoring and support services!
We're in the planning stages, but are fully committed to opening in August 2021 if our minimum program size of 8 students is reached!
Our core staff is comprised of dedicated guides with teaching experience in elementary education, literacy, and special education.
Our extended team includes a number of services providers available for on-site Occupational Therapy (OT), Speech, Orton-Gillingham instruction, academic tutoring, executive function coaching, and more!
Our founders have personal and professional experience with all types of learners and do a lot of wondering themselves... in fact, it was the wonder as to whether education could be better that led us here!
We're currently searching for the perfect, permanent home for our community in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. Because green, outdoor space is an integral part of our program, our hunt has proven a little challenging!
If, in the next few weeks, we cannot find a Murrells Inlet location that allows for outdoor exploration and program expansion, we have temporary space in Litchfield (Pawleys Island) that we'll use beginning in August 2021 until we find our home in Murrells Inlet, with a goal of transitioning as soon as possible. Our temporary space is in the Mingo Center near the Willbrook Boulevard biking/walking trail and the Waccamaw Library, both of which we plan to use frequently!

Home-based education is not an experiment. It’s how people learned to function in the world for centuries. And there is no reason to think people today can’t do the same thing. School is the experiment… And that experiment is in trouble. Wendy Priesnitz
