Hi, I’m Blake.

I believe in the power of self-directed learning.

In college, I quit an astrophysics major to design my own degree in alternative education.

Since 2008 I’ve taken teenagers on life-changing trips through my company Unschool Adventures. (There’s still space available on my 6-week Spain trip in May/June 2018.)

I speak for conferences, parent groups, and alternative schools in the U.S. and abroad. I might even be speaking near you soon.

I’m the author of The Art of Self-Directed Learning (2014), Better Than College (2012), and College Without High School (2009). Find them here.

My work and I have appeared in The New York Times, Psychology Today, The Huffington Post, Fox Business, The Christian Science Monitor, TEDx, and national radio.

This article explains my educational beliefs. This profile captures me well. And I really love this interview.

I publish a monthly email newsletter and post frequently on Facebook.

Here’s what I’m doing now.

Thanks for visiting.
