The Hadden Institute is a non-chartered private school in central Ohio. We originally set up this school as an avenue to our children’s life led education but are now expanding it to become a place of learning for others as well. We have recently acquired a small parcel of land in Morrow County Ohio and are working towards making our vision a reality. Our goal is to have everything set up for the 2017-2018 school year!
We are planning a “free school” located on an self-sustaining farm that works with each student individually to form educational goals and reach them.
Teachers are from all walks of life and are dedicated to living and instilling in our students compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, forgiveness, love, peace, thankfulness and gratitude.
Through a combination of work on the farm, study, community living and social interactions, students develop a life-long love of learning, valuable life skills, strong work ethics and respect for themselves, others and the environment. Instead of learning to compete, students learn to cooperate, care for themselves, their world, and each other. We are strive to help students become responsible, compassionate, confident, and competent free humans.
