Curious Minds Convening At Friends Academy...

By Friends Academy | Aug 29, 2017

The Encompass Community For Independent Learning is a new group forming in Dartmouth, MA. Our mission is to provide experiential offerings and free/affordable resources to homeschool families and life-long learners of all ages. We aim to build a hub of information centered upon curiosity, generated by and for Independent Learners!

The group is housed at Friends Academy, an Independent school with a Quaker-history situated on 65 acres of pristine wilderness!  Thanks to this amazing partnership with the Center For Education Innovation, we are able to offer…
