Thank you for visiting the Charlotte Mason Fellowship homepage. We are a Christian community of homeschoolers that meets on Wednesdays to share the feast with our scholars. We meet for 12 weeks in the fall and spring.

God created in children an innate desire to discover, explore and learn about the world around them. It is our goal as parents to cultivate this love of learning and equip our children to enjoy a life-long process of learning. The Charlotte Mason Fellowship, a HFHG co-op, will began  September on Wednesdays at the International Christian Center (ICC), 3726 Bardstown Road, Louisville, KY 40218. We will present a generous curriculum, including nature study, art, geography, picture and music study, handicrafts, as well as citizenship via Plutarch and Shakespeare.
