The realization that school sucks actually marks the beginning of a new and exciting educational journey.


Welcome to SchoolSucksProject.com. We strive to provide young people with the building blocks of intellectual, financial and lifestyle independence. This includes in-depth explorations into higher-level thinking, organization and productivity, emotional and physical health, habit and lifestyle optimization, history and philosophy, psychology, self-directed learning, entrepreneurship, and communication/negotiation strategies. It's all essential information, but almost none of it is taught in school.

Our content is ideal for frustrated high school and college students (deschooling), home-educating parents (unschooling), and adults who are interested in independently furthering their education and achieving self-actualization (self-directed learning). To see every topic at a glance, check out the site map.
