The Mysa School started in Washington DC and the Mad River Valley school is its second location.

The Mad River Valley’s pioneering, independent Mysa school opened in the fall of 2021 with a small cohort of six families. The school will be moving into a permenant location on Bridge Street in Waitsfield in the fall of 2022. Families interested in enrolling their children can find more information here.

Mysa is a rapidly growing “micro school” model. Micro schools are modern-day and forward-thinking versions of the one-room schoolhouse. Similar to other micro and lab schools, Mysa is a hybrid model that combines two distinct, complementary methods of education. The first method is a hands-on, project-based, interdisciplinary and cooperative system where students engage in group work and solve real-world problems. The second method uses academic learning platforms where classes and lessons are drawn from an extensive menu of online lessons, programs, and resources from around the world – individually customized for each student.

In this way, Mysa School combines the best of both worlds: a tight-knit, small learning community that builds interpersonal skills and, at the same time, the best academic lessons, classes, and programs from around the globe – personally tailored for each student.
