Two Facilities in the NoCo - One Mission:
Provide a Safe Alternative With the Flexibility
to Meet Every Child's Educational Needs
At Deep Root Center, we understand that your kid may not be into school. Or - that school is no longer serving your child. We also recognize that you know they would thrive in the right environment.
We trust that each young person will lead the way in working together to create that environment from scratch. This is the foundation for the Culture of Trust and Respect that guides everything we do at Deep Root Center.
DRC is NOT School
Deep Root Center is an alternative to school because we believe that all young people deserve a safe educational environment where they feel like they are part of a community - and where they are free to explore all the possibilities. Learning can only happen when kids intuitively understand that they are secure, accepted, and trusted to make decisions, make mistakes, and explore all their interests to achieve their ever-evolving aspirations.
News & Notes
Thank you - SeaComm
SeaComm recently donated $610 in support of the Deep Root Center. The funds will be used to help provide one student with a flexible educational environment, for an entire month. For more than 10 years, the Deep Root Center has provided a safe and supportive learning environment for local students with specific educational needs. Pictured (l to r) are SeaComm Head Teller Rose Lapoint-Matthews and Deep Root Center Executive Director Maria Corse.
Thank you to the DRC Board President, Virginia G., for coming up with this very cool idea. She volunteers at DRC-Massena regularly - while she is there she has DRC Kiddos secretly choose 4-5 books from the shelves and put them in her DRC Bag to open at home. She posts videos on her YouTube channel to document opening the bag and showing the books the kiddos chose - then she records a second video reviewing the books. You can subscribe to her channel to get the videos when they are "fresh."
New Guide -
Our Consultation Services have become so popular, we needed to write a guide to explain the home-school process as a self-directed learner. (We have consulted with over 50 kids who are home-schooling at home, and support 40+ who are "in-person" at our two Centers - so far this year.)
Ways to Support DRC and Get Involved
Deep Root Center's commitment to building a diverse community includes our promise to accept every child who seeks us out. We rely on you, our allies, to help us keep that promise.
