Charlotte Mason Leader and Teacher Training
Please note that this option is best suited for group leaders, or those considering starting a CM group. If you are a homeschooler who would like indivudalized training in your hoomeschool, please visit our Individual Training option.
The Leader and Teacher training that you see here is just for YOU! Just like Miss Mason's approach, we believe that education is NOT a one-size fits all model, so think of our program as a mini-conference that is JUST for your group.
Charlotte Mason's method, at it's core, is relational - and so is our training. As opposed to providing you with articles, resources or general tips and ideas, our CM Leadership Training is personalized and geared towards YOU and your unique situation.
Of course we'll offer resources and ideas, but our goal is to address what you NEED and help you both train and plan for a successful program!
Read through all of our training options below and contact us if you have additional questions!
(All Leadership Training is completed by Kelsi Rea, Founder and Director of Heritage Christian Academy. Click here for a full bio and information.)

*Please note that it is common to see Miss Mason's method combined with a Classical approach, particularly in group settings. Heritage does not merge the two philosophies as there are distinct differences between them, so all advice and recommendations will be given solely within the Mason method.
