Who We Are
The Prax Village supports Freecoast families in their educational endeavors with in-person meetups, special events, and an online community. Villagers are empowered to take charge of their children’s learning. We welcome homeschooling families of all kinds, using any style of curriculum or no curriculum at all. Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at it for decades, your family will be at home here.
What We Do
Make New Friends at Life Learning Co-op
While your kids run free on the Praxeum’s large shaded lawn or climb to the top of the lighthouse playhouse, you can connect and chat with fellow parents. Everyone from newly-walking toddlers to preteens play, learn, and grow together.
Attend Exclusive Celebrations
Our first annual Praxeum Trunk or Treat was a blast! Our Village organized an unforgettable night with 20 decked-out candy stations, a glowing egg hunt on the lawn, and the carefree fun of trick-or-treating with friends. We have plans for a Winter Solstice party, Easter Egg Hunt, and more seasonal events to come.
Gain Priority Registration for Special Sessions and Classes
Interested in a co-op, class, or club offered at the Praxeum? We are gradually filling the weekly calendar with Prax Village gatherings, like our new Little Villagers Preschool Playgroup. In addition to exclusive Prax Village programs, members will be among the first to learn about new public classes and receive a discount for fee-based sessions. Our first extracurricular offering in Fall 2020, Crazy 8’s Math Club, filled very quickly and we look forward to holding a second session later this winter!
Access the Private Facebook Group
Organize events and classes. Communicate and make plans with friends. Ask questions and receive support. We know there are hundreds of homeschooling Facebook groups out there, but in this one you will engage with your trusted, IRL community.
Where We Are Going
While we have been building the foundations of the Freecoast for years, the Prax Village is the latest step in growing the community. We are ready and excited to share our resources and network with more local families! Future plans for the Prax Village include:
- Exclusive Field Trips
- Book Club Parties
- Gameschooling Clubs
- Home Educator ID cards (use them for teacher discounts!)
- Classes and clubs organized around a shared interest
- End-of-the-year appointments with a NH portfolio evaluator
- Anything you can dream up!
Become a Part of It
Meeting spaces can be hard to come by right now, but here on the Seacoast we have the Praxeum, a truly one-of-a-kind liberty community center.
All Prax Villagers are asked to make a monthly donation of $30 or more to the Human Action Foundation, which covers operating costs for our meeting space and homeschooling programs.
