Help Us Build a Maker Space!

Democratic Free Schools are learning spaces where love of learning, collaboration and democratic decision-making thrive!

We are currently accepting applications for the 2015-16 school year.

South Mountain Co-op’s approach to education is individualized and curiosity driven; students are free to explore the world around them at their own pace and according to their own interests, with the support of the adult staff and school community at large.

School governance is collaborative and participatory; each member of the community, regardless of age or role, has an equal say in the consensus decision-making process and running of the school.

We are dedicated to creating and maintaining an environment of trust and respect; we support students on their individual learning paths by fostering strong connections to fellow South Mountain Co-op members, to families, and to the surrounding community.

ATTENTION: We have obtained our 501c3 non-profit status. Your contribution to South Mountain Co-op is tax deductible, if you would like to support us by making a financial contribution you can make your donation using PayPal. Thanks for your support!
