Charlotte Mason Parents Educational Network

“The people themselves begin 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 whether in handling tools, drawing plans, or keeping books.”

We believe that children are whole beings and that it is the top priority of the parent to tend to the child’s whole self; including their education. It is our goal to create a community of learning and support to give our children a whole and abundant education.

We believe that in order to give our children the best education, a s. This investment in time broadens her skills, knowledge and interests. We strive to create a culture of Mothers learning together. This knowledge and these skills, when passed on to our children, will create a brighter world.
We offer community day. These Learning Days are weekly days where we come together to feast on education. Our program is Christ-centered and family centered. Unlike many homeschool education days, CM PEN Learning Days are not drop-off programs. One of the main goals of CM PEN is to be accessible for families of all sizes. We believe that this encourages community, and allows families to be fully integrated in the education process. During our Learning Days we explore a variety of subjects and short lessons, using Charlotte Mason philosophies. Students will be encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas while they are learning with others in their form. This day will be focused on allowing students to form connections with their readings and fellow students. We are a 501c3 organization with a mission to support homeschool families. We also have an online presence and encourage any homeschooling family interested in learning through Charlotte Mason's philosophy to join us. We operate locally in the Low Country of South Carolina.
