What is Buckeye?

Buckeye Friends is a progressive, self-directed, project-based, experiential learning community committed to teaching our seeds the life skills needed to thrive in every circumstance. We prioritize vulnerability and wholehearted living while honoring the needs of the whole child; body, mind and soul. At Buckeye we empower our kids with freedom to craft their own stories, define and measure their own success while teaching them that their choices will change the world. We know that true innovation and successful problem solving can only happen when kids have the courage to fail. Buckeye celebrates the journey to solutions by teaching our kids that the most valuable answer is not always the correct answer; at Buckeye F stands for find another way.

Buckeye Friends teaches kids how to live. We are a hybrid homeschool school offering a modern, challenging, learner centric curriculum shared in mixed age pods. Along with a strong STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) and literacy foundation, Buckeye kids enjoy a living classroom with daily access to a forest, stream, pond, farm animals, composting, growing, music, cooking, sculpting, coding, Spanish, French and much, much more.
