At The Trinity School we are all about making connections.

As lay the foundation of our program it is a joy and a gift to learn from experts who have gone before us.  We are grateful to have so many excellent Charlotte Mason resources in Texas.

This week myself, Erin Graybill and Gloria Bishop took an all to quick but incredibly inspirational trip to Fredericksburg to visit two phenomenal schools.   We visited with Rebekah Heirholzer, an expert in Charlotte Mason Philosophy, and observed her charming  cottage style kindergarten.   We also visited the K-12 program at Ambleside Fredericksburg and were fortunate enough to attend their last chapel service of the year.  The experience left us even more passionate about establishing a traditional Christian school using this whole child philosophy here in Harlingen.

The instruction had a peaceful gentle flow. I wanted to be five again and experience that type of learning environment.      -Gloria Bishop, reflecting on our trip.

I keep returning to the sunny, cheerful morning we spent at Ambleside in chapel, singing the hymn, “Morning Has Broken.” The headmaster would later tell the students that the education they received this school year was a gift, and I cannot help but think that this is a gift we must bring to our valley children. This atmosphere, this science of relations, this life. . . . . . . a new morning is breaking. – Erin Graybill reflecting on our trip

 

 

We will likely be making visits to other Charlotte Mason Schools during the 2017-2018 school year. If you are interested in coming along please let us know we would love to have you.
