Education & Training, Management - Schools

The greatest difference between Indie School and many other alternative education settings is that our foundations lay in Adult Education philosophies. Choice, independence, mutual respect, accountability all have a significant role to play.

Smaller class sizes allow students greater opportunity to identify their strengths and work to improve areas in which they lack confidence.

Indie School provides students the opportunity to learn in a supportive environment that uses individual education plans tailored to each student's own education/life circumstances. In return for higher levels of self responsibility, the students can enjoy some greater freedoms.
