Hudson Valley Sudbury School 



Hudson Valley Sudbury School is a democratic school for students from kindergarten through high school. The campus is located on 60 beautiful wooded acres between Kingston and Woodstock NY. It is one of over 30 Sudbury schools worldwide, based on a philosophy of education pioneered by the Sudbury Valley School in 1968.

The Hudson Valley Sudbury School takes a radically different approach to education. Sudbury students ages 5-19, create their own curriculum, through self-directed activities. They exercise their rights and responsibilities as members of an active democracy. Most importantly, they accomplish the difficult task of defining themselves. We believe that success in life is determined by a person’s character more than a specific body of knowledge. As a result of this belief, the structure of the school supports the development of qualities such as confidence, independence, resourcefulness, persistence and responsibility. With these qualities a person can easily obtain the knowledge they need to succeed.

At the Hudson Valley Sudbury School the students create their own curriculum. They exercise their rights and responsibilities as members of an active democracy. Most importantly, they accomplish the difficult task of defining themselves.
