Macomber Center is a community for children of all ages who are growing and learning without conventional schooling. Our members pursue interests in their own way and at their own pace, and are free to explore the world in a way that they find meaningful. We are not a school of any kind. We have no formal curriculum or guidelines for achievement. Instead, we trust that children will thrive (and learn!) when given time and freedom to play and explore within a community of other young people, with support from knowledgable, helpful adults. All of our members are registered as homeschoolers in their respective towns, and our member families represent a wide range of out-of-school approaches to education.
