if we can imagine, we can create.jpeg

We envision Vermont as home to a caring, resilient citizenry actively engaged in building an equitable, sustainable, and joyful world for all.

OUR GOAL: By 2022, Vermont will have a model learning system where all of our youth are engaged in equitable, reciprocal learning relationships that develop individual capabilities and powerful partnerships as they emerge as resilient global citizens committed to creating a just, joyful and sustainable society.

Our work is guided by shared values:


Collaboration and Creativity

Equity and Inclusion

Youth Voice and Choice

Community Engagement and Empowerment

Citizenship and Stewardship

Sustainability and Resilience

Freedom and Unity

We are driven by the moral and pragmatic imperatives of education: to realize and develop individual potential and to emerge a more equitable and sustainable world. We are partners in the great work laid out in the Earth Charter: "We must join together to bring forth a sustainable global society grounded in respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace."
