Talking Stick Learning Center is a non-profit educational initiative that offers young people an environment to explore, collaborate, and create.
Our method organically develops essential life skills such as decision making, creative problem solving, communication, self-management, and critical thinking.
We provide a safe and supportive space, free from grading and testing, that respects the individual and nurtures children’s innate curiosity and desire to learn. At Talking Stick young people are leaders, thinkers, and creators, not only prepared to take their role as citizens of the 21st century but as innovators of that future.
In our Homeschooling Today section, education thought leaders, including our own nationally known Katie O'Connor, members of our board, and guest writers share their latest ideas about homeschooling, self-directed learning, alternative education, and more.
Wondering what your child did at Talking Stick? Be sure to check out our What Did You Do Today? section, where are facilitators take the time to detail the adventures of the day and include tons of pictures.
