Hudson Valley Sudbury School is a democratic school for students from kindergarten through high school. Sudbury schools take a radically different approach to education, one based on the belief that success in life is determined by a person's character more than a specific body of knowledge. As a result of this belief, the structure of the school supports the development of qualities such as confidence, independence, resourcefulness, persistence and responsibility. With these qualities a person can easily obtain the knowledge they need to succeed. At HVSS, students create their own curriculum. They exercise their rights and responsibilities as members of an active democracy. Most importantly, they accomplish the difficult task of defining themselves.
