The Sanctuary School (TSS) is a school for all ages, a place where the flame of brilliance is ignited. An educational outreach of the Center for International Cooperation (CIC), it offers materials specializing in heart-based education and environmental awareness. Online courses are in the process of being developed and updated.
Children hold the future of our planet. Every child and young person has a special place in our world. Each has a contribution to make to help earth and all creation. We see the children and youth as the leaders of our new tomorrow.
The Sanctuary School program offers children and youth a foundation in kind living and love of nature by encouraging compassionate service, partnership with all life and individual creative expression.
The Sanctuary School
offers a model for education whereby each child's sense of
purpose is nurtured and supported. Studies focus on
decision-making, peacemaking and leadership development.
We seek to further and support the vision and goals of the United Nations by encouraging community service, partnership with all life, and environmental stewardship. Online courses to enhance learning abilities and introduce the heart-mind connection are being updated, to be offered as a global outreach to the new generation of children in homeschooling programs, public and private schools, and community-based learning environments. Through this holistic approach, children will learn and enjoy learning.
