Our Tutorial

Children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing.

Mission Statement

Ingleside Tutorial follows Charlotte Mason’s principles and methods of education providing students with excellent, challenging, gospel-centric education during the morning hours, while leaving afternoons to the family for personal development and community service.

We partner with parents to nourish the minds of their children through a Christ-centered, classic liberal arts education. We view children as whole persons with the innate capacity for vast intellect and an inherent desire for what is true, good, and beautiful. Our approach provides children with a feast of learning along with access to the beautiful outdoors, lovely learning environments, and an array of living books and resources that captivate the mind and encourage thoughtful learning and interaction.
