About the Learning Program

Milestone Democratic School is designed by youth for youth. We welcome all, and especially learners who believe in democracy. We create deep learning about this world, and aim to create a better world as we learn. Advisors work with students to plan learning. What do we need to learn? What do we want to learn? How do we learn best? Where does our best learning happen? Everyone can grow into critical thinking, social and emotional skill building, and a broad and complete view of the world.
