We come together to inspire and support each other in pursuing a Thomas Jefferson-style education and in finding and living our missions.
Corvallis Leadership Commonwealth offers phase-appropriate classes rooted in the philosophy and principles outlined in A Thomas Jefferson Education*. We are a community that believes core values can be learned through work and play; strong character developed through challenge; and self-governance practiced through choice and accountability. We believe great mentoring occurs best when parents lead by example, inspiring the youth they mentor as they share their interests. Our community thrives on the active participation of all our members as we build friendships with one another and work together to create a supportive and inspirational learning environment for all.
