This website is dedicated to the educational philosophies of Charlotte Mason, a British educator from the last century. Her methods and philosophies have recently experienced a resurgence, especially among American homeschooling families. Mason’s emphasis on children developing a lifetime love of learning was in stark contrast to the nearly anti-child climate of her time period.
The mission of A Charlotte Mason Home is to bring Charlotte Mason’s ideals and methods to modern families. Believing that Mason’s teachings are timeless, we’re not afraid to move those ideas out of the past into the modern age. While we enjoy Victorian decor as much as the next person, we believe Charlotte Mason would’ve made use of every modern convenience, development and scientific method available. She was considered a bit avant garde in her day … and surely would’ve today, as well.
