Embark Center For Self-Directed Education

Embark Center is a community of learners and serves as a resource center for youth and families who wish to have more autonomy in their learning and lives. Through personal advising, family conferencing, classes, workshops and tutorials, Embark Center focuses on each unique individual to envision a plan for success. Typically, Embark members range in age from 13-19; have grown increasingly frustrated by the constraints of traditional schooling; have tried, unsuccessfully, to create a meaningful existence in one or more school-like settings. At Embark Center, each member is paired with a personal advisor. This relationship will become the key element of the youth member's experience. Through regular meetings, the advisor helps the member envision a unique plan that includes tutorials, classes, and community involvement. If the member is under 16 years, the advisor will help create a written plan for submission to the local superintendent of schools.
