Life is the Curriculum! Trust, Choice, Responsibility and Accomplishment the values

When Jeff Collins couldn’t find a school suitable for his daughter he discovered The Sudbury School Model. He was so impressed he started his own school in Woodstock NY!

Jeff takes us through the values and philosophies of The Democratic Sudbury School model, where each student has a voice and decision of how the school runs and how to spend their days. The school has no curriculum, no compulsory classes, no tests and no homework. Instead they promote Trust, Choice, Responsibility and Accomplishment. The model focuses on internal motivation with no coercion to get students inspired and interested in life and the love of learning.

Jeff is passionate about getting The Sudbury School Model into the mainstream as we approach this new age of how learning can look, whether we take these values into Homeschooling or beyond!
