Ambleside School of the Adirondacks
"The people themselves begin to understand and to clamour for an education which shall qualify their children for life rather than for earning a living. As a matter of fact, it is the man who has read and thought on many subjects who is, with the necessary training, the most capable in handling tools, drawing plans, or keeping books. The more of a person we succeed in making a child, the better will he both fulfill his own life and serve society." —Charlotte Mason, A Philosophy of Education
Ambleside School of the Adirondacks opens up worlds of interest and opportunity for children. In an atmosphere that supports learning and positive habit formation, children engage with rich texts full of ideas to ponder and to be inspired by. Whether the captivating idea is found in a pattern of numbers or poetic imagery, children embrace living ideas that satisfy their need to know. Without the pressure of performance, the will of the child is strengthened to do work that is meaningful and satisfying. You may find that Ambleside School of the Adirondacks offers the kind of private school education you've been hoping for your child.
