Lafayette Sudbury School: A New Start!

One of the secrets of life is to make stepping stones out of stumbling blocks.” Jack Penn

Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.” Marilyn vos Savant

This page was created in the fall of 2012 when we last attempted to launch a Sudbury school in the Lafayette area. After a few months of efforts and having made little progress, we reluctantly put our project on the back burner. We did make some progress, though, and giving that several of the interested parents had children that were too young for school, we knew it was only a matter of time before we launched the effort again.

And now is the time. And unlike the last time, we are not starting from scratch. The progress we did make a couple of years ago are our stepping stones.

The target date for the opening of the school is now September 2016. This gives us 14 months to organize, find/secure a location, raise funds, enroll students, hire staff, and do a myriad of other things.

We will start by having two public information sessions about our school this month where we will introduce the Sudbury model and answer questions:

Dates: July 16th & July 22nd, 2015

Time: 6pm

Location: The Clubhouse @ Chateau Mirage Apartments (1630 Rue Du Belier in Lafayette)

If you are interested in becoming a founder, member, or volunteer for Lafayette Sudbury, join us Wednesday, July 8th @ 5:30pm. This meeting will take place at our farm (near Maurice). If you want to attend, please contact us privately and we will send you the address.

Onward!
