WHY AN AMBLESIDE EDUCATION?

 

"The people themselves begin to understand and to clamour for an education which shall qualify their children for life rather than for earning a living.  As a matter of fact, it is the man who has read and thought on many subjects who is, with the necessary training, the most capable in handling tools, drawing plans, or keeping books.  The more of a person we succeed in making a child, the better will he both fulfill his own life and serve society."  

Charlotte Mason

Philosophy of Education

"A living education empowers students to author lives that are full and free – rich in relationship to God, self, others, ideas, work and creation.  It provides the tools needed to live well in all aspects of life – personal and professional, present and future."
