Heartwood ALC is a K-12 independent school for self-directed learners. Students at Agile Learning Centers individualize their learning within the context of a supportive community. We have adapted simple tools for self-organization and intentional culture creation to better support young people in pursuing their passions and curiosities so that they can succeed in an ever-changing world.

Our learning environment embraces choice and freedom, along with the development of meaningful connections between peers, facilitators and the community. The structure of the school allows for students, facilitators, and parents to have a voice and take an active role in building the community they want.
