On my arrival at Ambleside I was interviewed by Miss Mason who asked me for what purpose I had come. I replied: “I have come to learn to teach.” Then Miss Mason said: “My dear, you have come here to learn to live.”

CHARLOTTE M. MASON The Story of Charlotte Mason

An Ambleside teacher is passionate about learning how to nourish and nurture the life of each student. The teacher, in her daily work, shares in a vision for who each student is becoming, and with this in mind, works diligently to bring out the best in each student, providing support for growth and maturity.

 

At Ambleside, our educators are:

  • Fostering a community of joyful belonging where all persons are valued and seen as the Father sees them.
  • Living a life of faith in, dependence upon, and obedience to, Jesus Christ.
  • Cultivating an active, developing life of the mind, as well as social, psychological, and spiritual maturity.
  • Seeking to “bring up” students to intellectual, social, psychological, and spiritual maturity.
  • Engaging a broad curriculum covering a broad variety of academic disciplines.
  • Working dutifully, diligently, and joyfully in the fulfilment of all responsibilities.
  • Partnering with parents in the work of student formation.
  • Participating in a community of educators with healthy, God-honoring relationships in an atmosphere of joy and peace.
  • Receiving feedback humbly, seeking the support needed for personal growth.
