Welcome to Grassroots Free School!

It is with heavy hearts that we tentatively cancel the 2024 summer programs at Grassroots Free School while we assess the extensive damage the campus and its buildings sustained during the devastating storms and tornadoes that swept the area on May 10th, 2024.

Our staff, families, and community are working together to preserve and restore this special place that, for generations of alumni, is far more than a school.

At Grassroots, students pursue their own educational journey in a supportive and nurturing environment. The school’s philosophy is based on the twin principles of self-regulation on the individual level and self-government on the community level.
