Understanding Educational Philosophies

One of the first things to research when considering your child's homeschooling experience is the philosophy behind the education you choose. Listed below are some of the philosophies to use as a guideline for your own homeschool education.

  • Charlotte Mason
    As described on the website, the Charlotte Mason method is "A method in which children are taught as whole persons through a wide range of interesting living books, firsthand experiences, and good habits."
  • Classical Education
    As described on the Well-Trained Mind website "Classical education depends on a three-part process of training the mind. The early years of school are spent in absorbing facts, systematically laying the foundations for advanced study. In the middle grades, students learn to think through arguments. In the high school years, they learn to express themselves. This classical pattern is called the trivium."
  • Interest-Led Education
    "John Holt coined the word unschooling in 1977 to mean learning that does not look like school learning, and learning that does not have to take place at home. Holt was a celebrated classroom teacher who became the founder of unschooling and one of the founders of the modern homeschooling movement." ~Pat Farenga of
  • Leadership Education
    Also known as Thomas Jefferson Education, Leadership Education follows seven principles necessary for quality education.

    1.Classics, Not Textbooks
    2.Mentors, Not Professors
    3.Inspire, Not Require
    4.Structure Time, Not Content
    5.Simplicity, Not Complexity
    6.Quality, Not Conformity
    7.You, Not Them
    ~Oliver and Rachel DeMille of
  • Montessori
    The Montessori education focuses on order in the learning environment and providing a unique learning experience for each child dependent upon their needs.
  • Waldorf
    As described on the Why Waldorf Workd website "The Waldorf Education is based on a profound understanding of human development that addresses the needs of the growing child. Waldorf teachers strive to transform education into an art that educates the whole child—the heart and the hands, as well as the head."
