and thank you for visiting our website. The founding vision of
Wellsprings was to be a place of nurture for teenagers for whom
conventional schooling does not work. Since 1994 we have been providing
a safe, nurturing environment for a very wide diversity of young people.
recent visitor to Wellsprings – the Head of a Friends school in North
Carolina – commented that “you empower the kids to be learners, to be
themselves, to be teachers.”
As you browse through
the pages of the website, you can read what our students and teachers
themselves have to say, as well as the details in words and photos of
what life is like at this exciting alternative school. We invite your
feedback, and look forward to getting to know one another.
