Fr. Michael Jarrett
School Chaplain / Director of Trinity on the Border

Michael Jarrett is an Anglican priest and the director of the Trinity on the Border ministry. At any given time you may find him reading ancient Christian history and theology, rebuilding a 45 year-old boat, repairing a 1983 Jeep, making soap, wine, beer, compost, web-sites and podcasts, exploring photography, going fishing, and currently remodeling a downtown building for the ministry – in other words he loves learning new things… but he never liked school.

When he first learned about the Charlotte Mason method of education several years ago, he knew that this was something special. In it he found a form that brought together virtue, beauty, truth, integrity – knowledge of the Creator and His Creation – and it did so in ways that are practical to everyday people who will one day work everyday sorts of jobs.
