Green Street is a program of classes and activities for independent learners throughout Connecticut. Students travel to Middletown, Connecticut, a central and convenient location, to participate in on-site learning and hanging out with friends.
Green Street provides unique services within the home school community. This is a place where innovative and relevant teen programs provide everything from alternative medicine classes to rigorous academic classes such as physics and biology. Green Street’s foreign language classes provide support for those who study languages at home and elsewhere.
We meet at the Green Street Arts Center and the Buttonwood Tree in the northern section of downtown Middletown. These buildings provide excellent classroom and performance spaces, as well as convenient access to the Kid City Children’s Museum, the Russell Library, local parks, and myriad downtown restaurants and stores.
Green Street’s magic comes from within. Our parent volunteers offer high-quality classes for free. Specialized teachers are hired from outside of Green Street, whose fees are split by the coop members, to keep costs as low as possible. Even teens have the opportunity to teach and develop coaching and leadership skills.
Our membership is open to all who home school regardless of educational philosophy, religion, race, or political beliefs. Our culture is welcoming, neutral, and available to those of all lifestyles and beliefs.
