When asked what they want from school for their child, parents unanimously iterate:
“I want my child to be happy.”
“I want my child to do what they love.”
“I want my child to become an independent, contributing adult.”
And yet, the going ideology is a Common Core Curriculum, whereby every student learns the same skills and content at a set time, like it or not, whether it makes the child happy or not, and whether it plays into a meaningful contribution or not.
At Benedicite Education, we are offering something completely new and different. We are a support team, partner, and service to families who wish to provide a personalized learning experience without the full responsibility of homeschool. There is nothing common or standard about Benedicite Education.

Ultimate Entrepreneurship Education
We don’t know what future jobs will exist, but we know our students will be able to create their own. They have been taught the tools of awareness and management, and allowed to practice these tools in an inclusive and respectful community. They have created, collaborated, and innovated in open learning. They have connected to their passions and engaged in meaningful work. Benedicite Education is an internship for life, whatever the future holds.

A note to parents:
This program is not for the faint of heart. It takes courage and strength to be counter-cultural. It requires freedom of choice and independence to allow your child to follow her own passions. We find peace in this: true creativity and innovation cannot be graded or standardized, and always fall outside of control and compliance. We are merely providing the “space” for your child to engage and connect with her own learning and purpose. Learning happens naturally; we are the support team.
