Back in October, we created Unschool.School as a platform an ecosystem that democratizes access to educational opportunities outside of the traditional classroom. We wanted to help people find meaningful and connected in-person opportunities which empower learners through freedom and choice.

Then the pandemic hit! And we scaled back a bit, knowing that our in-person model might need to pivot temporarily to online. During that time, in March and April, we worked hard on a program that was a full-time alternative to school where families and students could meet in small groups. We call it the POD (Plan of Discovery) program. What is happening in the educational landscape right now is just confirmation to us that we are on the right track!

Our goal is to help as many educators and families as possible connect with each other to form their PODs. To that end, we are offering our platform services for free for the first 50 PODs to sign up. (Our normal platform fee is 20%).

If you are a location that has space or someone who would just like to help make PODs available to more kids, please let us know! Our goal is to make this opportunity equitable and accessible to as many kids as possible.

By signing up with us, we are offering our guidance and help to get you off and running. We have charter school, public school, private school, and homeschooling experience to offer you, templates to start your POD, and lots of support. Please reach out to us if you would like to be a part of something big! Come find your people! Reach out to us at
