I asked my son how his day at school was today, he replied, “Wonderful!”

Ambleside at Skylark is a Christ-centered K-9 school located in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, that applies the philosophy of British educator Charlotte Mason. We are committed to providing what Ms. Mason called a “living education.”
In partnership with the family, we guide and empower each student to think with the mind of Christ and to author a life rich in relationship to God, self, others, ideas, and all of creation.

Learn About: Our Philosophy


“This is our first year with our children at the school and it has been a pure joy to see them grow and develop in so many ways. They amaze us daily by reciting so many texts, by singing all the beautiful songs they learn throughout the week, and by demonstrating what they learn at school. We love to watch them grow in knowledge, in wisdom and character.”

We have a distinct approach to education, following the Charlotte Mason approach to empowering students.

Struggle has been a part of the growth, whether remembering the details of a narration or where to correctly place their bow on the violin. But through these struggles, they are learning habits and life skills to problem solve or correct mistakes. They have started to see the good in a struggle and how to overcome it.
