School Description

Jordan Lake Sudbury School is situated on thirty unspoiled acres in beautiful Chatham County, North Carolina. Open fields, a canopy of mature hardwoods and a seasonal creek provide an ideal environment for contemplation, exploration and fun. It is one of over 30 Sudbury schools worldwide, with more being established yearly.

JLSS students are free to grow intellectually and emotionally through play, conversation, exploration, the arts, reading, music, computer activities, organized classes, cooking, sewing, field trips and anything else that ignites their fancy.

Students and staff hold a weekly School Meeting, where everyone votes on all aspects of the school's operations — from field trips to school rules to budgeting to hiring staff. Each student must also serve on a Judicial Committee on a rotating basis. This Committee is established to resolve any conflicts that develop between students or between students and staff. Within this model, students learn first hand of the freedom and responsibilities inherent in a working democracy.
