What is Dat School?

Dat School is a Self-Directed Learning Center where children explore their interests and pursue their passions while living in an intentional community that names and disrupts racism, classism, ageism, sexism, homophobia, and other forms of oppression.

The New Learning Experience

Self-Directed Education: Education that derives from the self-chosen activities and life experiences of the learner.

At Dat School, we believe that kids are naturally curious and that they learn better when making their own decisions about what, when, how, and with whom to learn.

Facilitators are present to guide the students through their learning and to help them strengthen their social skills. 

Dat School currently serves children age 4 and up, Monday through Friday, 9am - 4pm. We welcome part-time students.
