“On my arrival at Ambleside I was interviewed by Miss Mason who asked me for what purpose I had come. I replied: “I have come to learn to teach.” Then Miss Mason said: “My dear, you have come here to learn to live.” I have never forgotten those precious words which have helped me with my children.”— Essex Cholmondeley

They love books, ideas, nature, and learning a wide variety of subjects. They are willing to become students of Charlotte Mason and teach using her pedagogy. They are able to lead young people with authority and respect, insight and courage, love and inspiration. They are committed to Jesus’ principles of relationship with God and others through practice and prayer. Besides the core subjects of math, literature, history and science, teachers at Ambleside instruct in many other areas of study. Our curriculum uses few textbooks; Ambleside teachers are able to master and teach their subjects without the usual educational aids and lesson guides.
