Open Connections

PROSPECTIVE FAMILIES: Open Connections continues to be open, virtually. We recognize that springtime is often when prospective families tour the OC campus and come for an in-person interview. While our physical campus is closed for the time being, we ARE continuing to conduct interviews via Zoom or FaceTime. If you are considering enrollment for Fall 2020, we encourage you to take advantage of this option! To learn more about setting up a virtual interview, please click the "Inquire" link. We look forward to “meeting” you and showing you all that OC has to offer. Thank you for your interest in Open Connections! CURRENT FAMILIES: Please check your email for the kick-off schedule for distance learning!

Do you want to preserve and enhance your youth’s

natural curiosity? 


We are a forward-thinking educational organization offering programs for youth ages 2 through 18. Youth attend OC programs 2-3 days a week and OC co-directors work with families to help them design what their non-OC days will look like (if the family wishes for this support). We refer to this approach as Partnership Education, as OC and the family work together to create and implement a vibrant, diverse and comprehensive educational (and life!) experience. Guided by our values and principles we serve as a community base for young people and their families seeking an innovative, collaborative and Process Conscious educational environment. 


At Open Connections, we have a VISION of a world where all young people develop the foundation for a self-directed life of purpose and fulfillment.
