The Sudbury Movement

The Hudson Valley Sudbury School is part of an international network of Sudbury schools, all of which are based on the 35-year-old Sudbury Valley School in Massachusetts. The concepts of Freedom, Trust and Responsibility are at the heart of the Sudbury model. Sudbury schools are run democratically, ensuring that students have the freedom to direct their own education. Sudbury graduates move into their adult lives as self-confident, articulate, resourceful and motivated citizens.

Below are a list of the other international and US Sudbury schools.

There is a mailing list devoted to the discussion of the Sudbury model of education. To join the list or read through the list's archives, check here.
