🌿 Nature Studies
🌿 Educational Events, Outings, & Field Trips
🌿 CM-Inspired Gatherings
🌿 Homeschool Conferences
🌿 Literature-based Learning Opportunities

We ask members to join us in earnestly seeking to learn and pursue CM's educational model and foster this community.

🌿 Contribute by sharing resources such as those mentioned above
🌿 Actively pursue and learn the CM methods
🌿 Strive to build real, in-person relationships with other local families
🌿 Offer encouragement and support as needed
These are the components that make a location-based Facebook group worthwhile! This a volunteer run group. We are all home educators–be gracious to the collective when life allows by volunteering your time and efforts to the group. If you would like to organize an outing, you are welcome to do so long as it is in the spirit of Miss Mason's teachings.

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.

Charlotte Mason Book Discussion, In Vital Harmony
Connect with likeminded mom's as we discuss the book, In Vital Harmony by Karen Glass. We will meet Tuesday, May 23rd & June 6th at 6:30 p.m. in Weaverville, N.C. The goal of the discussion will be to gain a deeper understanding of the philosophy of a Charlotte Mason education for our children and ourselves. She described her approach to education as, “Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life.” Members will purchase the book to read and are encouraged to take notes or jot down questions to bring to the discussion. During the meeting, we will take turns sharing our thoughts about the book, what we learned, and how we related to the material.
“It is no arbitrary reward which is attached to the assembling of two or three together; we warm ourselves at each others’ fires, and glow with the heat we get. Let but the heads of two or three families meet together to talk over the bringing up of their children, and the best and wisest parents will go home with new insight, renewed purpose, and warmer zeal. ‘We shall learn by degrees that education is, like religion, a social principle as well as an individual duty; and, meeting on this higher ground, we shall find out the best of one another as we never should in the common intercourse of business or society.'”
Charlotte Mason, editorial note, Parents’ Review, March 1890
