The purpose of the Charlotte Mason Institute is to support a worldwide community of learners and educators in an authentic practice of Charlotte Mason’s paradigm of education. We seek to do this in three ways: explicating the educational philosophy of Charlotte Mason, equipping individuals and schools to practice Mason’s pedagogy and nourishing the Mason community with insightful publications, examples of practices and various forms of knowledge from the arts to the sciences, from nature to literature to history and many more.
The Charlotte Mason Institute aims to extend the Charlotte Mason educational philosophy to children worldwide, just as Charlotte Mason intended. The Institute’s long term vision is to develop a vibrant and growing Mason community to sustain generations to come.
The Institute is a nonprofit organization approved by the IRS under the code 501(c)(3).
“We attempt to define a person, the most common-place person we know, but he will not submit to bounds; some unexpected beauty of nature breaks out; we find he is not what we thought, and begin to suspect that every person exceeds our power of measurement.” -Charlotte Mason
