Welcome to an empowering way to learn.


Backed by more than five decades of experience, our staff forms a vibrant and dedicated team that works together with families to meet each student’s individual learning needs.

Personalized Approach

Every student learns through Clonlara’s personalized Full Circle Learning Model. Families can tailor their learning journey by choosing the program that works best for them: Campus or Off-Campus.


More than a school, Clonlara is a global learning community with students in more than 60 countries and services provided in six languages.




A classroom the size of your imagination

We all have different learning styles, needs, and goals. Our experienced K–12 teachers nurture students’ passions and allow them to thrive as individuals.


A school with no walls, overlooking the world

At home, on the beach, or on top of the highest mountain. Where do you want to learn? There is fertile ground to learn anytime, anywhere with Clonlara’s Off-Campus Program.


Distance learning with caring support

A convenient option for students in grades 6–12 who are looking to complement their learning with “ready-to-go” material on a wide range of subjects from introductory to advanced level.



Our mission is to transform education on a global scale through a highly personalized approach that fosters authenticity, autonomy, and joy in the learning process.
