Clonlara School Campus Program

Tel: (734)769-4511
Grades: K - 12 | 40 students
Clonlara School’s two educational programs provide services that recognize each learner’s curiosity, strengths, interests and talents as the foundation of his or her educational experience.  We have both a Home Based Education Program and a Campus Program located in Ann Arbor, MI.  Both programs serve K-12 students. The Clonlara School philosophy is that a school must empower students to participate purpose- fully and eagerly in their own educations.
We believe that learning begins with curiosity.
Our experience providing an open environment that fosters creativity has confirmed our belief that children learn best when their interests guide their activities.
Clonlara School believes that parents have the right and ability to educate their own children.
Clonlara School views the world as the classroom and considers the learning environment integral to the learning process.
We believe that a school should allow its students to participate in the design and application of the curriculum.
We believe that academic learning and the mastery of skills are not limited by the location in which they are sought, either in a school or at home.
Our approach to education leads to a lifelong love of learning. In additional to our campus school, we also have a well established home based education program which provides families around the world with support and advising services.  This program is accredited and offers very flexible schooling options.
