Free Curriculum Guide

A Curriculum for an Enjoyable Education

Our curriculum is designed to help you homeschool the Charlotte Mason way with confidence and freedom!

Your whole family is combined together for as many subjects as possible as you enjoy a wonderful mix of modern and classic books. You have the freedom to start with any history time period you like and add in other subjects from a variety of choices. It’s a thorough and enjoyable education, but with enough room to reflect on what is being learned or to add additional resources, if desired.

See The Heart of the SCM Curriculum for the full details.
