A Charlotte Mason School practicing The Gentle Art of Learning
“That they might have life to the full”
The atmosphere is serene and attentive when students are not learning out of competition or fear. Our time spent in academic work is relaxed, focused, and purposeful.
Students are educated, not on dry textbooks, but on “living books” — our best books by our finest authors. Students tell what they know in response to these challenging and inspiring books.
Habits for Life
Great care is given to cultivating good habits, both academic and relational. Plumfield is a place for students to form habits that will serve them for the rest of their lives.
For the Children’s Sake
Our approach to life and learning fosters a simple, unhurried childhood. Our students are not pressured into a premature adolescence, but remain free to be who they truly are.
Plumfield Academy offers unique educational opportunities in an unusually positive environment. Students are free to explore their own potential and to develop excellent skills and habits. As a result, my son’s self confidence and academic motivation are soaring, along with his capacity to empathize with other people – all this in the context of an inspiring curriculum, steeped in our rich literary and historical heritage.
