Welcome to EarthSchool!

EarthSchool is a Maine nonprofit created in 2011 to grow an inclusive and supportive community of homeschooling families. Our member families engage in a variety of homeschooling and unschooling styles. EarthSchool now has nearly 100 families, and come from southern, western and midcoast Maine.

EarthSchool meets weekly during the fall, winter, and spring in two locations in Gorham (ESSM) and Midcoast (ESMM) Maine. EarthSchool is a collective effort -- members teach classes, organize activities, and support each other in their homeschooling journeys
.

Our Mission:

EarthSchool is a secular and environmentally conscious homeschooling collective, actively working toward becoming a fully inclusive and safe space for all individuals.

We are committed to anti-oppression, anti-racism, anti-ableism, affirming and celebrating human rights such as those of BIPoC, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and individuals who identify as neurodiverse, and disabled.

EarthSchool is focused on building community, providing learning opportunities and educational support. We strive to create a safe and equitable space for families of all socioeconomic backgrounds to learn and grow together - free from harm and oppression. 


Every year, every session, families have a chance to enjoy a huge, versatile array of classes. Preschool to high schoolers (and even adults!) hone existing skills, learn new crafts, focus on academic offerings and revel in the arts. Enjoy a peek into the amazing classes we have at EarthSchool!
