I am interested in starting a Charlotte Mason group in Boone County Area, KY.
If you are interested, please let me know! It would involve a Mother Culture book club for Moms, nature study group meetings for the families, and possibly enrichment for our children in a once a month co-op format.
Kindly reach out if you are interested. Nature walks can start happen during Summer with the other activities resuming in the Fall. Thanks in advance!

Event for parents
This one-morning event is for moms to connect with other CM homeschoolers, and to encourage each other in our role as mothers and educators. We'll discuss a Parents' Review article, have a picture study and snacks, and leave plenty of time to discuss CM, curricula, and local communities.
We are Christian, Charlotte Mason hybrid-style academy for homeschooling families. We offer classes out of doors on Tuesday and Thursday of art, music, PE, Spanish, handicrafts, nature study, and more, while you do the other subjects with your children at home on M and W. Our program is not something to add to what you are already doing, but rather for the group to take some things off of individual mothers’ plates for the more specialized subjects. Younger children welcomed as well.
At the moment, one parent is required to stay on campus to serve in an approved capacity. Tuition is $1100/child (capped at four) per academic year. Families are expected to make a yearly commitment. Acceptance contingent upon application.
This is a small group, we would love to find more Charlotte Mason homeschoolers! There is only a few families that meet to discuss Charlotte's writings, in nature, with our children playing nearby and underfoot. We would like to grow into a CM co-op.

“Love the Lord your God ... with all your mind.”
Can you ever be “done” with reading, learning, and thinking to the best of your abilities and still obey this command? In a culture that often elevates emotions and “my truth” over knowledge and wisdom, let us discover together the insight a gifted, God-glorifying educator can give us in pursuit of knowledge of God, Man, and Creation for our children and ourselves. Lifelong education challenges and better enables us to appreciate God from many directions.
We will be starting with Volume 1, which focuses on the early life of children from birth to about age 9, but the emphasis she places on things in early childhood are the foundation for what she’s building for her entire education method. So, if you have children past that early age, this will be applicable to you as well, and what she has to say in her later volumes builds upon this foundational volume.
This group is for women who want to be intentional with the children that God has placed in their life and enrich the relations they form both in and out of, and before and after their school life.
We each must be intentional with our own education, which does not begin and end with school, and should truly be a lifelong endeavor to the glory of God. We should not stagnate in our own education and expect vibrant growth from our children - we must model the habits we desire to blossom in children. As Charlotte Mason says, “Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life.” - and we are part of that to our children!
We are a group of CM focused mamas, who meet once a month to study CM principals (this year we are studying Volume III). For participating members, you have access to our living book library (for a small cost).
Please message to inquire for more info.

I am interested in starting a Charlotte Mason group in Johnson County, Indiana.
If you are in this area, or near it and willing to travel, please let me know! It would be a mother's group - furthering education on Charlotte Mason, a nature group, and possibly enrichment for our children.
I have had this in my heart and mind for some time now & would love to hear from you if you would be able to join in this area!!!
Santa Teresa, NM
I invite you to join in an nature and science group with me! We can go to nearby wetland and other habitats, we are trilingual group with English, Mandarin and Spanish.
We meet in Greer, SC to provide a living education, education is the science of relations. We view children as a complete person and teach them with rich curriculum and help them grow with gentle formation of knowledge and character. Charlotte Mason summed up her teaching in three words, beautiful, expansive, and efficient.
We are are group of families that want to give our children a rich education. During our co-op days we gather together to study nature, Shakespeare, art, Plutarch, music, geography, and handicrafts. The parents all volunteer and are active on-site during co-op day, each week. We offer recitation nights twice a year with one of those featuring a play performed by the children in the co-op.
Outside of co-op days, we want to 'do life' with each other and connect frequently. In addition, the moms meet regularly to learn more about the Charlotte Mason method as well as strengthen our bonds. Family nights are also offered as it's vital for the whole family to have a supportive community and socialization.
I host a Charlotte Mason Reading Group monthly in my home in Philadelphia, PA. We are a group of Philly-based Charlotte Mason homeschooling mothers committed to learning and growing. We read through CM's volumes each month and come together to discuss her philosophy and how to implement her living ideas of education. Meetings are on a weeknight from 7:30-9pm. We welcome anyone interested in reading the volumes and discussing Charlotte Mason with us!
We meet up to do folk songs, recitations, folk dancing, physical geography, scouting and Handicrafts.
We also are starting a group for middle school and up to read through Shakespeare together and some other subjects. I am open to younger children meeting at the same time if someone else wants to help lead that.
We meet on a bi-weekly basis during the school year. Meetings are an informal, low-stress opportunity for mothers and children to build community while practicing a Charlotte Mason education. The exact format of the meetings is flexible and depends on the input of the mothers participating. We emphasize spending as much time outdoors as possible during all seasons. Activities may include recitation, learning a folk song, doing a picture study, going on a nature walk, drawing in a nature journal, and working on handicrafts together. Activities are designed to interest and accommodate students from a variety of ages, including younger siblings.
Lark Rise School is dedicated to advancing the educational principles of Charlotte Mason by supporting educators and families through classes, conferences, discussion groups, and other local and online opportunities.
We are currently transitioning from Florida to North Carolina, and looking to connect with the local homeschool community before introducing new groups and programs in the area.
Educating Mothers is a robust book discussion group for women ready to approach the work of education with reverence and dedication. All levels of experience are represented and welcome in this growing community, as we apply ourselves to understand and practice Mason's educational method. We meet in the Kendall area, 7PM-10PM on the last Thursday of each month (excluding December) to discuss the assigned reading. This group is open to the public, and does not require a membership or purchase. Please contact us to join our email list and receive reading assignments and meeting details.
