Homeschooling is our educational choice and it holds a firm place in our future; however,
we don’t view it as a necessity for every Christian family. We identify ourselves first and foremost as a family – not homeschoolers. I describe our philosophy a little more here: Why Homeschooling is not Necessary to Family
I would describe our style as being fairly eclectic, but of a Charlotte Mason and a bit of Classical bent. To make sense of this statement, here are a few links:
- Charlotte Mason’s Philosophies–a simple introduction on the various aspects of a CM education (from the viewpoint of this author)
- Simply Charlotte Mason
- The Well-Trained Mind–while I don’t adhere to everything explained in this book, much of it is enriching; see a description on classical education here
- Ambleside Online–a free online CM curriculum; even if not followed fully, it’s a helpful guide for establishing a foundation of excellence in literacy.
This said, we adhere to a philosophy of what I call whole life education, using whatever resources fit our children best to grow them in relationship with God, with themselves, with others and with the world.
