The heart of our philosophy in the Clonlara School Home Based Education Program is that learning happens in a variety of ways and that many activities and life experiences can be considered as integral to a student’s education.
Clonlara Campus School was founded in 1967 by Pat Montgomery, PhD, with the goal of empowering students to participate in the design and application of their own educations.
The Home Based Education Program has been in existence since 1979.
Our mission is to provide programs and services that that recognize and support a learner's curiosity, strengths, and interests as the foundation of his or her educational experience.  We serve students in K-12 from the U.S.
and 31 other countries (as of 2011-12 school year).  Clonlara School’s Home Based Education Program is fully accredited by AdvancED.
