Are you looking for

a different kind of education?


So are we!  Join us! 

We are a group of parents who, after careful research, have decided to start a non-profit Self-Directed Education facility for our children ages 5 and up.


We have succeeded thus far thanks to an amazing group of parent volunteers, generous donors, students, staff, and their families. Click the photos below to meet the volunteers on our Board of Directors.

If you have examined SDE and share our vision, please volunteer with us and share your skills. Contact us here.


Together we are making it happen!

Lafayette Homeschool Collective is a private, non-profit, independent learning center open to all students capable of full participation as self-directed, autonomous members of our homeschool community.

LHC does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, religion, or national or ethnic origin

(or anything else you can think of).
