Open your own AWS Community

Do you have a need for an educational service like this in your own community?  AWS offers a franchise opportunity to help parents open their own versions of our collaborative model….. in ANY state!

What do I need to  get started?

You’ll need a vision for a child-centered model of education.  We are NOT ‘recreating’ traditional schools, but facilitating a strong foundation in reading and math while guiding our highly sensitive children to follow their own interests and passions.  Depending on your state’s education code, you may not even need a traditional teaching license.

You’ll need a community of like-minded people who are looking to make a change.  You don’t have to know where all your students will be coming from right away, but you need to have an idea of WHO their families are so you know if your community needs an educational service like this.


You’ll need a meeting place  (the current AWS Homeschool Collaborative meets in a single-family home- you’ll have to consult your local state and city codes to determine an appropriate meeting place). 


You’ll need a business mindset.  It’s no good creating an alternative learning environment if it’s not sustainable.  We’re committing to changing education for the long haul.  We recommend downloading and reading “The Microschool Builders Handbook” for a guide to making your vision come to life.  


(If you join the AWS community, your enrollment in the Microschool Builders Workshop, a 6 week live online coaching program that maps out the launch of your microschool from start to finish, is included in your franchise fee).
