Who We Are
Prax Village is a community of liberty-minded homeschooling families who have chosen to raise our children outside of the conventional school system. We provide support, social time with friends, and extra-curricular opportunities to over one hundred children living around the Seacoast area of New Hampshire and Maine, from babies to teens. We welcome homeschooling families of all educational philosophies, 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 teens play, learn, and grow together. This unstructured social meetup is our weekly drop-in anchor event and runs year-round.
Attend Exclusive Seasonal Parties
Every season brings a new reason to celebrate at the Praxeum with family and friends! Make lasting memories year-round at the Valentines Exchange, Freecoast Egg Hunt, Midsummer Potluck, Halloween Trunk or Treat, and Enlightenment: A Winter Solstice Celebration.
Participate in Classes, Clubs, and Playgroups
We offer a variety of classes and programs during the week, organized into 8-week sessions. Villagers have participated in math club, music classes, LEGO club, Spanish, soccer, book club, theater productions, and so much more! Prax Village members are empowered to organize activities for all to enjoy, and groups of families with similar interests and needs are encouraged and assisted in forming small co-ops to learn together — Animal Biology and Ancient Civilizations are two subjects studied by small groups at the Praxeum last year. Sessions usually include a playgroup for our younger members, as well as special discussion times specifically for older kids.
Connect in the Private Facebook Group
Organize events and classes. Communicate and make plans with friends. Ask questions and receive guidance and encouragement. We know there are hundreds of homeschooling Facebook groups out there, but in this one you will engage with your trusted, IRL community.
Discover Field Trips and More!
We create fun opportunities around the region exclusively for Prax Village members, like our field trip to the NH Farm Museum or classes with the Gundalow Company. Moms who love to read can join the monthly Ladies’ Book Club. In the summer, several members schedule their end-of-year portfolio evaluations at the Praxeum and attend the Curriculum Show and Share to see different curricula in person. We are currently excitedly prepping for our first ever Prax Museum Weekend: a Pop-Up, Hands-On, Kid-Made Science Center.
Become a Part of It
Meeting spaces can be hard to come by, but here on the Seacoast we have the Praxeum, a truly one-of-a-kind liberty community center.
Become a Prax Village member anytime by making a monthly donation of $30 or more to the Human Action Foundation. We are a completely volunteer-run organization and all contributions go toward operating costs, maintenance, and upgrades for the Praxeum.
