Delivering a Charlotte Mason
Education since 2002

At Charlotte Mason Community School (CMCS), our dedication to providing equitable education in Detroit spans over two decades! We firmly believe that every child is entitled to a transformative educational experience. Our curriculum aims to instill a passion for lifelong learning while empowering students with the tools to effect positive change within their local community.

What is a Charlotte Mason Education?

Education is a Life

When we proclaim that "education is a life," we're talking about nurturing every aspect of your child's being – intellectually, morally, and physically. Just as the body requires nourishment, so does the mind. Our curriculum is designed to provide a rich and varied diet of ideas, feeding your child's intellectual hunger and sparking their curiosity. With a generous curriculum that encompasses a wide range of subjects and activities, we ensure that your child receives the intellectual and moral sustenance they need to thrive.

Education is a Discipline

We take "education is a discipline" to heart. It's all about instilling thoughtful and intentional habits that pave the way for success. Just as athletes train their bodies for peak performance, we believe in training the mind through disciplined habits. Physiologists have shown that our brain structures adapt to habitual patterns of thinking, shaping the way we learn and process information. 

Education is an Atmosphere

We embrace the concept of "education is an atmosphere," where every aspect of your child's surroundings contributes to their learning journey. We understand that true education goes beyond the classroom walls. That's why we harness the educational potential of your child's everyday environment. By allowing children to interact naturally within their surroundings, we create an enriching learning experience that fosters curiosity and exploration.

I OUGHT

There's a voice inside us that tells us what's right and wrong, and we feel like we have to listen to it and do our duty.

I WILL

We decide to use our power to do what we've decided, and just deciding is already a step toward doing it.

Inside the heart of every child is an expression of God’s person and purpose for their generation.
