Intention

Agile Learning Centers are spreading rapidly across the globe. Here is your chance to be part of this educational movement in Hawai’i!

Agile Learning Center Oahu is a resource hub and shared workspace for youth ages 7-17. We are not a school so our initial students who desire an intentional community for self-directed learning must be legally registered as homeschoolers (unschoolers and other non-schoolers fall under this category) or aim to complete this legal process.

At Agile Learning Center Oahu, learners gain 1-on-1 mentorship, access to community resources, and interact within a collaborative space around their personal intentions, projects, and goals. The next steps of Agile Learning Center Oahu’s development will involve all initial participants: enrolled learners and their families, supporters, facilitators, ALC network.
