A Classical, Christian Homeschool Community

Inspired by the philosophy of Charlotte Mason and the Liberal Arts tradition, we are a cooperative designed to assist parents in the pursuit of wisdom and virtue with their children.

 
 
 
 
 

PHILOSOPHY

“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.”

Micah 6:8

Do Justice – We desire our students to be filled with the knowledge of God, the knowledge of man and the knowledge of the universe.  Our hope is that through the pursuit of wisdom our students build strong character to act justly in the world around them.

Love kindness – We believe each person is made in the image of God and is, in the words of Charlotte Mason, “ a born person.”  We are humbled by God’s loving-kindness in saving us through His son and desire our students to see the wonder of God’s creation through this lens. We equip our students to be a light and live out the kindness of the Lord towards others and the natural world.

Walk humbly – Our hope is to cultivate life-long learners who are filled with wonder and curiosity. We believe this pursuit of knowledge begins with humility in our students as well as our parents and teachers.

Our education should help us remain in an intellectual state of knowing that there are things we do not know, because as soon as we shift from a sense of not-knowing to a sense of knowing, we are no longer open to further instruction. If we are humble, we are teachable. If we are not humble, we are not teachable.”
