The Free Progress School is a pilot unit in Free Progress Education. It aims at expanding the mental, creative and physical capacities of each child spontaneously. At the base of this process of integral growth stands the unfolding of the psychic being which is the guide throughout. The education is child-centered. Teachers and children play, work and learn together. Instead of formal classroom education and examinations, the children learn through the Project Method.
The Research & Resource Wing of the school is doing research on the integration of the higher levels of consciousness in several fields of human endeavor, but with a special focus on education. It is developing new methods for integral learning and is an exchange center for ideas, techniques and materials.
