South Orange, NJ
Trellis is a North-Central NJ Charlotte Mason community that exists to support parents and develop relationships between homeschooling families interested in learning and growing in the life-giving, relational principles and methods laid out by Charlotte Mason.
Trellis was prayerfully established in order to provide the fellowship, encouragement, and support needed for homeschooling parents to provide their children with an education in their home environment based on the gospel-centered, Charlotte Mason philosophy and method. Being so prayerfully established, the Trellis community continues to thrive by God's guidance through prayer and His truth as revealed in the Holy Bible. We seek to support current and prospective homeschooling families by providing opportunities for parents and their children to build relationships and grow in their delight of learning together.
We are made up of families from Essex, Bergen, Morris, Union, and Middlesex counties of NJ, and currently are accepting mothers into our in-person book study group. This Fall (starting Sept 2023) we are starting the first part of Volume 4: Ourselves. We welcome people of all faith, educational, and cultural backgrounds, while at the same time putting forth the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ, as revealed in the scriptures, which is the truth upon which Charlotte Mason based her philosophy and method.
We do not offer a co-op at this time.
We are a Facebook group for parents in New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut who have only just heard about Charlotte Mason or have been using her methods for years. We love Charlotte Mason and the precious truths she left behind for our families! We would love for you to join our group if you’re looking for information about the Charlotte Mason method of education, for support in learning to apply this method in your home, and/or to connect with other families in the tristate area who use this wonderful method of life and learning,
Slowly, yet surely, Charlotte Mason families are springing up in the NJ/NY/CT area and this Facebook group is the result of our desire to connect Charlotte Mason families in our areas. We want you to know you are not alone! Our hope is that through this group, you will find other Charlotte Mason families in your area, as well as support and resources to bless your home and homeschool.
