A Homeschool Parent
"Mom, do you see how gracious I am being?" My 5-year-old looked up at me with soft, genuine eyes. Such a question from our son is a direct result of our training at Amblieside Schools International in Charlotte Mason's educational philosophy. Because of this training as parents and educators, we have learned the importance of habit training. "Education is a Discipline." [We have] exposure to gracious characters in literature. "Education is a Life." [We have] an atmosphere of grace in our home. "Education is an Atmosphere." While we are still learning and making many mistakes along the way, ASI has equipped us with the necessary tools to parent and educate our children well.
A Homeschooling Mother
Homeschooling using the ASI curriculum has been a huge blessing for both my children and me. Since we began, my children are making connections between what they learn, the world around them, and themselves. I see them thinking for themselves on a deeper level and discovering ideas in ways they weren’t before. Through ASI, I have been instructed in the educational philosophy of Charlotte Mason, trained in how to use her methods, and supported as I put them into practice in my homeschool. As a result, I have grown immensely as a teacher, a mother, and a person.
Kimi, a Homeschooling Mother
Attending the summer institute has helped my children be more engaged in history, science, Bible, reading and literature. It has made our overall learning experience so much more enjoyable and we are all getting so much more out of our lessons. Adding citizenship and nature study has increased our learning and added the extra novelty with a punch that was missing.
