An Education for Life School
The school’s mission is to provide students with a balanced education of body, feeling, will, and intellect in preparation for meeting life’s diverse challenges.
Our students range from ages three to eighteen and come from a diverse background of both local and international origin. Our online International High School student body currently hails from five continents! More than our small class sizes and holistic education model, the essential ingredient that makes Living Wisdom School special is consciousness.
Nestled in the heart of Ananda Village, a spiritual community based on yoga principles and founded more than fifty years ago, our approach is naturally energy-based and the result is a nurturing environment where many youth thrive. Our faculty are members of Ananda, but our school family comes from a wide range of spiritual traditions. All are welcome.
