Charlotte Mason in South Florida
Education should make our boys and girls rich towards God, rich towards society, and rich towards themselves. —Charlotte Mason
Peacocks pick their way among the banyans in Fairchild Tropical Gardens, trailing their magnificent tails behind them. World-class orchestras and opera singers perform at the Adrienne Arsht Center. In this beautiful international city of Miami there is a growing community of home educators who have adopted the philosophy and methods of Charlotte Mason in order to glorify God and serve others through an education that values the wonder of life in our time and place.
Lark Rise Inc. is a nonprofit dedicated to advancing the educational principles of Charlotte Mason in South Florida by supporting educators and families through classes, conferences, discussion groups, and other local and online opportunities. Our mission is to educate and challenge teachers and students to approach life and vocation with exceptional skill, faith, humility, honor, and delight.
We desire that our teachers and students will embrace a life-long love of God, of their fellow man, and of learning, that they may grow as persons of virtue and noble character who live purely, work eagerly, contemplate clearly, listen attentively, discern wisely, reason rightly, and articulate accurately—doing all this willingly from their hearts as an act of worship for the glory of the Triune God.
