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!

Heather Hurley

Parent Resourcer

Heather is a Parent-Resourcer in the Wednesday Open Program. She joined the OC Staff in 2019.  Her family has been a part of the OC community since 2018. 


She earned her bachelor's degree in Elementary and Special Education as well as a Masters of Education in Educational Leadership, teaching at the middle school level for 10 years before transitioning to stay at home with her young people. Upon moving to Phoenixville from Pittsburgh, her family joined the learning community at OC and fell in love with the people, the campus and the philosophy.


Heather has found time to explore her own interests too, volunteering for women’s public health organizations and a local CSA, as well as running, journaling, planning family adventures and singing far too loudly in the car on the commute to OC. Her three young people all attend OC.
