Inspiring Courage & Creativity

We believe every person who enters our door is destined to find a calling and change the world.

Disruptive Education

We believe that education is preparation for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. And for today’s students, what lies ahead is a future that is drastically different than the world we live in now. Students today will be responsible for creating that future, and to be prepared for that task, how and what they learn must transform to meet those challenges.

Creator’s House exists for that reason.  To help students find their calling and prepare them to thrive in a rapidly changing world. We do this by challenging them to take ownership in their learning and to put it into practice by solving complex real-world problems using critical thinking, creation, collaboration, and innovation.

Our Approach

Mixed Ages

Our studios are designed with an understanding that ability is not determined by age and that in an open environment, students naturally learn from other students with different interests, skills, and ability levels.

Projects with Purpose

Our students will focus on solving real-world problems and pressing issues that reflect the world around us.  These projects bring together multiple disciplines and engage students by allowing each to focus on areas of individual interest and ability.

Mastery Focused

At Creator’s House, our students have the opportunity to learn at their own pace, allowing them to excel quickly in areas of strength and take the time to learn thoroughly before moving on in others. This allows each student to continually be challenged by their work.

Learner-Driven

We believe that children are capable of far more than they are tasked with today. By challenging students to independently set and attain personal learning goals, with a long-term orientation, they gain ownership in their work and are able to realize their true potential.

Experienced Guidance

Our Studio Guides are lifelong learners, experienced in their fields, and passionate about the work they do.  Students at Creator’s House will learn alongside entrepreneurs, engineers, artists, designers and advanced students from a wide range of disciplines.

Our Plan

Creator’s House is now enrolling learners for Spark Studio (ages 4-6).  If you are interested in our Elementary Studio (ages 6-12), inquire about our waitlist.

Spark Studio

Spark Studio focuses on whole child development – cognitive, physical, emotional, and social – with an emphasis on exploring and discovering natural interests. In the morning we have a Montessori environment, and in the afternoon we incorporate the best of Reggio, Waldorf, STEAM and practical real life learning in a hands on adventure program. Students in Spark Studio are introduced to the goal setting and independent learning skills needed to thrive in future studios.

ES, MS & Launchpad

Elementary Studio, Middle School and Launchpad build on students’ Montessori skills while engaging them in Projects with Purpose and Mastery based core skills – computer science, reading, writing, and math – using the top proven and challenging tech-based learning tools.  Projects focus on complex interdisciplinary problems, ethical dilemmas, and simulations requiring deep critical thinking, heavy collaboration, and unique creative solutions.

Our Inspiration

Innovative learning designs are gaining traction across the country as parents seek to better prepare their children for what the future holds. We were no different. We saw the challenges that will face our children in the future and looked for solutions that would prepare them to turn those challenges into opportunities. We took time to research, visit, learn from and partner with schools across the country that are leading in this movement by implementing some of the most advanced student-centered learning practices.

Creator’s House is the product of that work, a coming together of the most innovative learning models across the country. Creator’s House admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
