It is no small part of education to have seen much beauty, to recognize it when we see it, and to keep ourselves humble in its presence.

Every school classroom has a philosophy. An educational philosophy answers the question, “Why do we do what we do?”

.
The philosophy you see playing out in a school classroom is based on one of these models:

 

  • Whatever each individual teacher wants to do
  • The vision of the head of school
  • OR a cohesive philosophy consistently applied, like Montessori, Waldorf, or a deeply Christ-centered philosophy of education in a Charlotte Mason school.

Parents should understand the philosophy behind their children’s education because it affects everything that happens in the classroom. And they should ask questions about how teachers are trained, because if they are not, then the philosophy will be ‘whatever each individual teacher wants to do’, and then the quality of education is fully dependent on which teacher you happen to get.

Charlotte Mason Education

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.
