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.

You’re invited to the FEAST
((Faithfully Educating All Students, Together))
Join us as we read and discuss Charlotte Mason’s first volume in the ‘Home Education’ series. We’ll break down this rich text into manageable portions that are easier to digest and implement.
This parents-only study group is open to anyone looking to enhance your homeschool days.
Whether you currently homeschool or are just tossing around the idea,
whether you are enrolled in a virtual school or not,
whether you use a box curriculum or curate your own–
there’s room at the table for you!
Meeting on the 3rd Monday of the month
6:30p at Nutz Deep II in Marshfield
The Charlotte Mason Institute hosts several different online study groups each semester (seasons run from January-June and July-December) for community, growth, and encouragement. Groups typically meet once a month via zoom for an hour and a half, and extra articles and resources and a forum to chat with others in the group are provided with registration.
The Truth, Beauty, Goodness Community (TBG) is our long-standing (over 14 years!), beauty-filled offering of a homeschool community built on one particular philosophy of education – that of Charlotte Mason. At different times, we have had all ages in our co-op, only elementary age students, and only high school students. We love to share and encourage others who wish to start learning cooperatives where many hands (teachers) make light work and allow moms to implement the fullness of a Charlotte Mason education.
Visit our webpage for more information and resources that we love to share! Presently, we have a Form 3-6 group (TBG Teens) and a Forms 1-3 group (Spreading the Feast).
