About Us

Ambleside School of Boerne at a glance.

Children, I think all children, so taught, express themselves in forcible and fluent English and use a copious vocabulary. Parents become interested in schoolroom work, and find their children ‘delightful companions.’ Children show delight in books and manifest a genuine love of knowledge.

Ambleside Students Playing in Nature

Ambleside School of Boerne has been serving the Boerne community since 2014.

 

Whether you are just beginning to explore schooling options or are seeking a meaningful educational change for your child, we welcome your interest in Ambleside School of Boerne.

 

Students come to Ambleside from a variety of learning environments – public schools, private schools, homeschooling or other Ambleside schools, and from a variety of locations – Boerne, Fair Oaks, Comfort, San Antonio, Helotes and Pipe Creek.

 

Here are the fundamentals about our school.

Ambleside is a Christ-centered school, providing children with a personalized educational journey in Pre-Kindergarten through 8th Grade.

 

As part of Ambleside Schools International, we are one of 25 Member Schools across the world.

 

The philosophy of education developed by British educator Charlotte Mason shapes our curriculum and method. Her focus on engaging children with the best of creation and attention to habit-formation are models that remain relevant and poignant in guiding today’s children toward lives of purpose, character and excellence.

 

Class sizes are limited to 16 students, with one class per grade, so that every student and every teacher can be personally mentored in a warm supportive community of families.

 

We follow a traditional school calendar, with class from late August through May, from 7:50 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. on Monday – Friday.

If you are considering Ambleside for your children, please review the information on our site and RSVP to visit the school.

Philosophy of Education

"I am a child of God. I ought to do his will. I can do what he says. And, by his grace I will"
- Charlotte Mason's motto

Children are Born Persons

Children are Born Persons

They are not an empty vessel to be filled or a piece of clay to be molded, but rather persons who bear the image of God.

Atmosphere

Educational Environments

Children learn best when they are at peace. The spirit and culture in which the student is immersed is critical to grow and thrive.

Habits & Routines

Education as a Discipline

Our lives are shaped by habits. Over time, they become our character and serve to shape who we are, how we think, act, work and relate.

Education is a Lifestyle

Education is Life

Real learning happens when students engage novelists, poets, philosophers, scientists, mathematicians, artists, musicians, historians and explorers.
