A Continuing Conversation's
2018 Charlotte Mason Regional Conference

Good Things Take Time:

Education to be thorough must be a gradual training.

November 8th - 10th, 2018

What Should You Expect?

On Thursday, November 8: A pre-conference immersion is available, a Community Supper & an Opening Plenary.

Immersion Session will be limited to the first 40 registrants! Don’t delay.

For those new to Charlotte Mason, please join us for CMI’s Beginner’s Track immersion.

Thursday evening also offers a free open-house style dinner at a local CMer’s home. Come and go as you please, but please come!  And, then a plenary talk, free and open to the public, by Kelli Christenberry.

On Friday and Saturday: The Main Conference will take place.

We will be inspired by many speakers including Penny Gardner, national speaker & published author; Kelli Christenberry, CMI board member & education mentor; Joy Shannon; Marcia Mattern; Shannon Whiteside; and many others.


We will take the time to gradually learn more about all things Charlotte Mason, from philosophy to practical immersions, Plutarch to Art Appreciation, and Nature Study to Handwriting.
