The Tutorial School

  • The Tutorial School is an educational community that includes students, staff, and parents joining together for what we believe to be among the most basic and fundamental of human activities: the pursuit of self-knowledge and the exploration, discovery, and understanding of life and the universe in all its multifarious aspects.
  • The Tutorial School offers a different way to raise and educate children.
  • Students from 10 to 19 years old pursue their interests in a comfortable, non-threatening environment.
  • By deciding what and how they want to learn, students develop a sense of responsibility for their lives.
  • The school emphasizes self-reflection, sensitivity to others, respect, trust, self-motivation, relationship, and the ability to think for one's self.
  • As a community the students and staff cooperatively run the school and implement the ideals and ideas that are generated.
  • In this way young people prepare for life as a whole.
  • We endeavor to provide a thoughtful alternative to the too-often unquestioned assembly-line education offered at many schools today.
  • More than just student-centered, The Tutorial School is student-run, offering students the opportunity to take control of and responsibility for their education, and their lives.
