Mission

Red Mountain Community School is an educational offering to the families of Birmingham, Alabama in the Charlotte Mason tradition.  We are an intentionally small (K-12) day school devoted to educating the whole person.  Our program is especially designed to foster relationships within a rich and varied curriculum of books, materials and experiences.  Regular outings, a healthy atmosphere of respect and care,  habits that develop life-long learners,  and consistent exposure to fruitful ideas are Red Mountain distinctives.    We are informed by the following questions and keep them before us each day:  ‘What is best for children?’  “What impact do our educational practices have on the mind, body and spirit of our students and families?’ and “How can our school be a gift to our city and its residents?”
