The mission of the International Association of Colearning Communities (IACLC) is to act as an incubator of colearning communities and microschools, providing workshops, resources and a knowledge base for those edupreneurs starting their own educational spaces. By joining the IACLC you will gain access to a community and network of people like you dedicated to making a difference in the world, and sharing resources to make sure there is a great, affordable educational option for every child.
Our goal is to make a community for parents, families and founders to learn more about colearning and microschools. By offering a database of resources, training and workshops, opportunities to speak with alternative education leaders and access to community forums, we hope to organically drive the creation of thousands of colearning communities across the nation. It is our goal to not only enable others to create low-cost, private K-12 education options for families that are accessible to and equitable for all.

“I enjoyed the networking, having time to talk with other people doing similar things in education and getting to ask questions of "experts" as well as a chance to get advice and guidance.”
