Hudson Lab School is a new, independent K-12 school which opened in September, 2017 in a single mixed-age classroom at Andrus on Hudson, teaching grades K-5.

Cate Han, Founder, has begun the school with a mission to instill a love of learning and to teach children how to design and build a life in which they can thrive. Hudson Lab School integrates collaborative, interdisciplinary project based learning and thoughtful self-reflection with the academic fortitude of a classical liberal arts education. Teachers guide and support students as “lead learners” in their investigations rather than the person holding all the answers.

Hudson Lab School incorporates intergenerational learning and is working on building an intergenerational library at Andrus on Hudson. The children’s confidence grows as they explain their latest project to our seniors while our seniors are realizing they still have an appreciation for learning.
