From Project Libertas to School for Community Learning

School for Community Learning, formerly Project Libertas, was formed in 2012 as a small, independent, “pay as you can” school in Indianapolis, leading students to discover, recognize and nurture their talents as part of their education and personal development.

In the beginning, Project Libertas held classes where we could – including an apartment building and a gymnasium. In spite of all odds and challenges, the school thrived because of the dedication of our early pioneers (four teachers, 20 families, and 38 students) who believed in the mission and were deeply committed to the core beliefs of the school. We were called to teach freely and show students how to affect their communities for the common good.


Now located on the campus of the Indianapolis Unitarian Universalist church, the school is home to a growing community of teachers, students and families. To embrace this new growth and strengthen community presence, our name changed to School for Community Learning, though the school is still under the umbrella and original vision of Project Libertas Inc.
