What you do matters and your community, state, nation & world need YOU.


My name is Richard Kerry Thompson and it is an honor to be on the Board of directors of the NAEA. I have been appointed to reach out to the states in Region 3-Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio & West Virginia. NAEA's vision is to connect, invite and empower the cause of Alternative and Non-Traditional Schooling.

Together, we can achieve more and overcome the feeling of solitary practitioners in this most honorable mission of education.

I invite you to~

1. Become a NAEA member (Free)

2. Share ideas and resources across your state, region, and nation

3. Synergize at the NAEA National Conference

4. Advocate for our students with the confidence of knowing that you do not stand alone.

Please contact me to see how we can work together for our youth.

Carpe Diem

NAEA is a volunteer organization dedicated to information sharing and professional development, best practice, public policy, and advocacy for alternative learning and teaching.

Created in 2002 through the efforts of several officers from the original Safe Schools Coalition (SSC), the Association has sponsored an annual conference on alternative education for the past several years.

When the Safe Schools Coalition decided to disband, its officers were determined to continue the much needed work that had been started and created a national professional association dedicated to alternative educators and alternative education options.
