Space of Mind was founded in 2004 as a private coaching company guiding stressed out families. While working along clients in homes, schools and on-the-go, founder Ali Kaufman quickly came to realize that school was the main stressor in most households. After achieving a level of success helping students and their parents create productive homework, time management and clutter management strategies, Ali began working with teachers, guidance counselors and school teams to help translate that success into the classroom. Frustrated with the lack of flexibility within the traditional school system to meet students’ individual needs, Ali started her own social homeschool program in September, 2010 with just three students in her living room. Quickly, that group grew, and by the time SOM moved into the historic Clarke House (circa 1896) in Downtown Delray Beach in April, 2011, there were eight students!

Since then, SOM has grown to more than 28 full-time students, 25+ staff members and also offers exciting programs for students grades 1-12, college-bound students and adults. Through innovation, determination and a fierce dedication to creating a school experience that solves problems rather than creating them, the SOM team has developed a revolutionary program that engages students, families, educators and the larger community in unforgettable experiential learning.

We are honored to be featured on the AltSchool blog! While we have been manually goal-setting and measuring social, emotional, creative and life skill development alongside academics since the SOM Schoolhouse began in 2010, partnering with AltSchool this past year has taken our magic to the next level.
