Open House: October 26

Join us for a tour of our new space at One Court Street in Lebanon, NH! Tours will begin at the street level outside the tent. We will show each classroom space on 2nd floor before heading up to our 3rd floor classrooms and administrative space. The tour will conclude back on the street level where there will be beverages and hors d'oeuvres in the heated tent. Register here.

The Alcotts

The Alcotts were a brilliant but eccentric family that produced not only Louisa May, but a sister who became a well-known artist and a philosopher father who was labeled a “man of genius” by Ralph Waldo Emerson. We will follow the life of this family through moves to thirty different borrowed houses and the growth of Fruitlands, the failed utopian community they started. Learn more about the course.
