School Notes

In light of God's love for all of us, we believe:
  • that relationships are the foundation of education (Small Class Sizes)
  • that the pursuit of knowledge should be natural, compelling, and enjoyable (Philosophy of Learning)
  • that in a nurturing environment any child can reach their potential (Environment)
  • that a diverse environment and the implementation of restorative practices foster empathy for all people (Value of Diversity)
  • that it`s better for everyone when everyone belongs (Embracing Differences)

Charlotte Mason, a British educator, viewed education as a science of relationships: relationships to God, to man (including ourselves) and to the world.The curriculum offered at CMCS encourages children to develop relationships with the world around them through numerous hands-on experiences.

Ms. Mason's methods call for using great literature as a means of putting children in touch with great minds and fine and performing arts to cultivate creativity and an appreciation for the diversity of artistic contribution in the world.

Outdoor play and nature study are part of the curriculum, both of which have been proven to enhance educational success.

Our goal is make phenomenal growth possible for every Detroit student that comes through our door, helping them to reach their full and unique potential.

Great teaching school. Work with students at their stage.

My son loves this school (and so do we)!There are so many benefits to this school: small class sizes, teachers who meet each student where they are at, a focus on well-rounded education, just to name a few. But what I really love about this school is that it`s a community of people who are all dedicated to raising great kids, inside and out. When I send my son to school, I know he is surrounded by people who strive to make him the best person he can be.

As a parent of three daughters living in Detroit, there is no other school I would want to send my girls to. Facilities, teachers, administration, school philosophy, safe environment, parent involvement...this school has it all and they work incredibly hard to make the school available to every Detroit kid. An amazing place for a child to learn and grow.
