This article outlines the concept and initial implementation of an intergenerational learning community (ILC), a new charter school concept, and reviews relevant literature. We discuss the mission, curriculum, educational design, philosophy, and lessons learned from initial implementation of The Intergenerational School (TIS). Such multiage communities of learners represent a conceptual and organizational response to the challenges that rapid cultural and environmental change and resultant alienation are posing for human societies. © 2000 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
