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 a small office 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.


Even as our school has matured, we still maintain our original passion and awe for what a committed group of educators and learners is able to do together. Now located on the campus of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Indianapolis, the school is home to a thriving community of teachers, students and families. Our 501(c)(3) status continues under our new name, School for Community Learning.
