From Goddard College

Our philosophy of education starts with the individual and holds that each person is truly unique, and is based on the ideas of John Dewey: that experience and education are intricately linked.

Students at Goddard work with faculty to direct their studies according to their personal and professional interests, goals, gifts, and desires. Students develop the capacity to understand their lives in an ever-changing social context, and thereby to take meaningful action in the world. They are encouraged to question received knowledge and the status quo and to create new understandings of the world and of human experience. As a collaborative interdependent learning community, we respect, include and appreciate differing perspectives.

    I am 68 years old and it was one of the most wonderful and enlightening experiences I ever encountered. Choosing what and how you are going to learn makes you a phenomenal researcher. It trains you to adapt to all sorts of experiences to your learning. The people were so extremely bright, wacky and quite unconventional. The collection of people there were all so different and accepting of others. It is a profoundly accepting and nonjudgemental place. The only downside is that people leave so frequently due to not being able to do much of their academic work on their own. I was there for all four years with only one other person who was a freshman. You either learned to motivate yourself or you dropped out. A lot of students dropped out.
    You would get close to people because of the dorm time and being far away from everything and having time to relax and talk together. It was one of the best experiences of my life and I am pretty old! I graduated in 1979.

    A truly democratic institution, students come first and their voices are heard! Individualized learning with the flexibility to experience life.
    Their innovative approach to education is extremely refreshing. One must be prepared for somewhat of a homeopathic culture, but their accommodations of students' needs and goals is downright amazing.
