The Dome School is different.
For more than four decades, the Dome School has offered an alternative to traditional education models. From our early days as a home school collective in a geodesic dome, to our current space in the newly expanded Takilma Community Building, we’ve provided a solid constructivist education with a strong student-teacher ratio (better than 10:1!).
It hasn’t always been easy, particularly in a rural area. Our funding is limited primarily to tuition and the fundraisers and events we’ve been able to offer. To to support our families, we try to keep tuition as low as possible, which results in a shoe-string budget. Yet we still lose families for inability to pay.
With our new monthly giving program, we hope to achieve a more stable level of funding. For a mere $5 or $10 (or more!) per month, you can help ensure a quality alternative education for our students, while also assisting us in our role as stewards of the Takilma Community Building. Maintainting the building, while continuing to offer numerous culturally enriching activities and events, is not without cost.
A few notes:
• You can sign up with credit card, debit card, or via ACH bank transfer from your financial institution.
• You can give anonymously. If for some reason you don’t want us to know who you are, you can indicate that.
• If you have any trouble signing up, we’re happy to help! Just call or send us an email.
For the price of a cup of coffee—wait, isn't that cliché? As we’ve noted above, we’re different. So let’s try this... for the price of a dozen organic eggs from the local liquor store, you can support alternative education and a space for community.
Thank you so much for your support!
