We are all Natural Learners.
At Open Connections we empower young people and adults to create the life they want, full of purpose and fulfillment.
We do this by offering programs that nurture Intrapersonal (I), Interpersonal (We), and Impersonal (It) skills through a variety of activities. When people leave Open Connections we hope that they are knowledgeable and confident in who they are; able to communicate their needs and wishes, and hear the needs and wishes of others, in a respectful and effective way; and prepared to tackle life’s challenges and opportunities using both creative and critical thinking skills. If this resonates with you, please consider joining us!
WHO ARE WE?
We are an intentional and collaborative learning community, for youth ages 4-18 and their families, located in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania, with the purpose of empowering people to live their lives full of purpose and fulfillment. Through our partnership education model, we collaborate with families to provide exposure, experiences, and community.
“I find that the skills I have learned throughout my time at Open Connections and as a homeschooler are valuable and I will continue to use them for years to come. I appreciate that I have the freedom to choose what I want to focus on learning, and I feel like I have a lot of control over how I want my life to go because of that level of freedom.” - Eva, OC Alumna
"The model of Partnership Education suits our family’s needs beautifully. We appreciate the people, resources, and meaningful experiences that are available to our young people. OC continues to make our vision for a purposeful education a reality, and that’s a dream come true us. We can’t imagine anything better.” - Lizzie, OC Parent
Where We are Located:
We are situated on 28 acres of an old farm, with plenty of land for exploring, playing, learning, and making life-long connections. Please feel free to schedule a tour and come explore if Open Connections is the right fit for your family!
