We are prayerfully forming a Christian community and an academy of learning for the purpose of discipling, educating, and habit training. Our mission is that our children grow rich in relationships – to God, self, others, ideas, work, and the created world.
“Education is not a subject and does not deal in subjects. It is instead a transfer of a way of life.” G.K. Chesterton
• desire to partner with other families in the academic development and character growth of your children?
• value a rich curriculum that inspires students toward what is good, true, and beautiful while preparing them for life?
• find it important that the Holy Spirit be acknowledged in all learning and the Word of God be the foundation of life?
Wonderful! You are invited to an Open House for further information on Plantings and an explanation of Charlotte Mason’s philosophy of education.
Primary instructor/curriculum development: Kelly Holcomb (trained and experienced Charlotte Mason educator)
Secondary teacher: Jennifer Ellis
Format: 8-10 students meeting 3 days per week with assignments for home days
An emphasis on 11-13yr old because of current family makeup, but open to other ages as community expands.
Please contact Kelly Holcomb
We are a small homeschooling group of Christians, together on this journey of raising the next generation for the Lord's work.
We meet every Lord's Day as a house church for worship; but also once or twice throughout the week both formally and informally in the spirit of the early church, sharing our lives, supporting each other in the call of creating healthy, ideas-rich, habit-trained homes and families upon the foundation of Scripture and the principles of Charlotte Mason.
“We spread an abundant and delicate feast in the programmes and each small guest assimilates what he can” (Charlotte Mason, Vol. 6, p. 183).
Spread the Feast Community is a community for home educators and families in Shelby County and the surrounding areas interested in learning about the Charlotte Mason method and philosophy of education. Our primary goal is to be a place of encouragement for parents on their homeschooling journey, and to grow in community with one another.
We also provide learning opportunities for the children so they too can grow in community and friendship with one another. Spread the Feast is open to all that are interested in learning more about the Charlotte Mason method and philosophy of education. We welcome CM veterans, those transitioning to CM, those that are just beginning to learn about CM, those that are simply curious about CM, and everyone in between.
We host 2 book discussions a month- a daytime one for adults and kids of all ages and an evening one for parents and "babes in arms." We also have mother culture and family events, clubs (scouting, nature), nature outings, "early years" meet-ups, and more!
This year we are reading In Vital Harmony by Karen Glass.
