Growing Up is a Journey

When parents bring a child into their family, it is a monumental event--one filled with hope, aspirations and maybe even some trepidation. How do you teach your child to live a joyful life? How do you prepare them to overcome the challenges that life brings? How do children create their own identities and develop critical social skills? This is where the Antioch School excels.
Children at Antioch School are met where they are.  They walk their own learning path, as fast and as far as it may go, yet there are always encouraging friends and teachers nearby.  Each person is trusted as a learner and valued as an important voice in the community, where we discover new roads together. We invite you to come with us on this journey of discovery.
