Are You Ready for a Change?
New members are being accepted into all of our programs throughout the year.
Deep Root Center offers an alternative to school for young people ages 5-19. We are here to support you, as an individual, moving forward, in a unique direction, to follow your interests and goals, at a pace that is right for you. Our main goal is to encourage our student members to rediscover and embrace their natural playfulness, curiosity, and creativity; and, in the process, rekindle their love of learning and belief in themselves. DRC trusts that all young people are capable of self-regulation and that they will make good choices when offered the opportunity.
DRC is Not a School
At Deep Root Center (DRC), 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.
Your kid isn't into school. But you know they would thrive in the right environment. We trust that each child will lead the way in working together to create that environment from scratch. All topics and formats are on the table. Everything is possible.
Young People Who Choose Deep Root Center:
Deep Root Center provides a safe, non-coercive environment where each young child's innate love of learning, natural curiosity, and unique way of looking at the world is celebrated and nurtured and is what guides their specific learning plan.
The Seedlings Program is designed for children ages 5-10
