Our mission is to provide students with a balanced education of the body, feelings, will, and intellect in preparation for using life’s diverse challenges to discover ever-deeper levels of purpose and happiness.
Living Wisdom International Online High School provides students with a true Education for Life (EFL), uniquely structured around a balanced approach to each student’s individual growth and development. Personalized learning experiences prepare students for the various challenges and opportunities found in life by helping them to attain true happiness, positive values, academic excellence, meaningful connections, creative expression, and inner strength throughout their journey of self-discovery.
Education for Life (EFL), our guiding philosophy, was first put into practice in India in 1916 by the renowned educator and yoga master, Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi. His “How to Live” approach to balanced education addresses the need for balanced development of the physical body, feeling nature, faculty of willpower, and intellectual aspects of human life. In 1972, the first school in the West based on this philosophy was established in California. Education for Life schools and programs are now established in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

The True Meaning of Success
We help students realize that a successful life is more than just a successful career. Life is made up of relationships with others, health and physical well-being, our interactions with the world around us, our challenges and pleasures, the attitudes with which we guide ourselves, and our abilities to strive for that which will bring us success, lasting happiness, and fulfillment.
We coach students and cultivate personal qualities that prepare them to meet challenges and new realities in creative, positive ways. We directly address the root causes of anxiety and depression that many teens experience through our educational approach and one-on-one support through the high school experience.
Our Students are Unique Individuals on Life-Long Journeys
A fundamental characteristic of the Living Wisdom International Online High School is that each student is appreciated as a unique individual on a life-long journey of learning and development. School staff, peers, family and friends, are all a part of this journey, along with the individual’s own set of strengths, challenges, interests, goals, and inspirations.
