What is Sudbury?

Founded in 2012, the Sudbury School of Atlanta is a democratic, self-directed learning community run by students and staff that enrolls individuals ages 5 to 18. Empowered with freedom, trust and responsibility, students have unlimited time and space to explore their interests. Learning to trust themselves and direct their own learning, students feel confident in their pursuits while discovering a deep sense of community. The first Sudbury model school opened in 1968 and there are more than 70 Sudbury schools around the world.
