Plantings Academy: A Community of Learning
"They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord
for the display of His splendor." Isaiah 61:3
An academy of Christian education is established in Marietta. The purpose is to provide a community for families seeking to educate their children toward loving the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength and to recognize and value what is good, true, and beautiful. The community will be following the life-giving philosophy of British educator Charlotte Mason.
Plantings Academy learning emphasizes living books that nourish the mind and develop critical thinking. In our community students cultivate imagination, form good habits, and develop life skills. Most importantly, this is a community where Truth and the love and grace of God are enjoyed each day.

We are a group of CM focused mamas, who meet once a month to study CM principals (this year we are studying Volume III). For participating members, you have access to our living book library (for a small cost).
Please message to inquire for more info.
We meet on a bi-weekly basis during the school year. Meetings are an informal, low-stress opportunity for mothers and children to build community while practicing a Charlotte Mason education. The exact format of the meetings is flexible and depends on the input of the mothers participating. We emphasize spending as much time outdoors as possible during all seasons. Activities may include recitation, learning a folk song, doing a picture study, going on a nature walk, drawing in a nature journal, and working on handicrafts together. Activities are designed to interest and accommodate students from a variety of ages, including younger siblings.
Our goal is to build a community of interested people around the philosophy of Charlotte Mason for the purpose of forming the next generation. We are planning informal events, and hope to build a homeschool co-op and potentially a future school.
