A Place For Your Indigo Family
How can parents of Indigo Children provide them with an education that supports their children in being who they are? We can help. At Global Village School, we have found that our methods work very well with the indigo child and all children who:
- Have a strong sense of who they are
- Are “different” than other children
- Are sensitive and compassionate, often with a strong sensitivity to injustice
- Are highly intuitive
- Often have trouble accepting authority, particularly when it’s without reason or choice
- Are wise beyond their years
- Are often identified or suspected of having ADD or ADHD
- Are considered to be frequent daydreamers
- Get bored easily with assigned tasks
- Have a strong determination to work things out for themselves
- Often see “better” ways of doing things at home and at school
- Are very advanced in their areas of interest

How our program works
Indigo children are welcome to enroll in Global Village School. Global Village will be the official “school of record,” maintaining student files, providing written evaluations, issuing official transcripts, and providing diplomas upon graduation. We will provide curriculum (regular or customized) and individualized teacher support. Families can also choose to purchase curriculum only, or to work with Global Village teachers on selected courses. Other families may wish to have us develop a customized curriculum for them, and then work with it on their own.
How GVS and Indigo children partner together
We believe that school should be interesting, fun, relevant to each student's life, and respectful of who they are in their heart and soul. We also feel that it should provide them with the skills and information they need to become responsible and compassionate human beings and caretakers of our planet.
We know that children inherently want to learn and will do so on their own, provided they have the appropriate materials from which to choose. Global Village students work at their own pace and are encouraged to collaborate with their teachers to customize the curriculum to match their unique interests and needs. By providing a nurturing environment, we can cultivate a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.
We believe it is vitally important to recognize and respect the individual personality of each student. If our curriculum is not working for a particular student, we do not blame the child, but work with the family to come up with a solution.
We offer the A Self-Portrait learning style assessment, which helps the student (and their teachers and parents) to understand the student’s own individual learning style. The profile provides detailed information about their disposition, modality (tactile-kinesthetic, visual picture learner, etc.), interests, and talents, along with detailed suggestions for working with the various dispositions.
We believe in engaging students in studies that inspire inquiry, encourage communication, and foster cooperation. We endeavor to support the development of thoughtful, compassionate and aware people who will provide a constructive and hopeful foundation for future generations.
Come Alive with Global Village School!
"I will not be sending her back to public school in January. The culture of verbal and emotional abuse in that system has taken a toll on her and I can't let them destroy my daughter's self esteem or the essence that makes her unique. I actually had a teacher tell me in a VERY negative tone that she is "unique".
She is my old soul, and her sense of ethics and strong feelings of social activism are what make her - her...I was reading your site yesterday and was struck by your inclusion of how the curriculum appeals to UU's and Indigo children. I think I've read every book on Indigo's since she was 8 years old!!! Janna, K-8 parent
