Thank You for Your Support at springfest

Fiesta & Auction | Saturday, May 5th, 2018 

Ambleside’s annual fundraiser was an encouraging and joyful affair! Our guest speaker was Greg Lorden, former Ambleside parent, current board member of Ambleside School International and founder of Ambleside School Colorado.  His story about how Ambleside impacted him, his family, and lead him to start an Ambleside school in Colorado was an inspiring and convicting testimony of the value of an Ambleside education.

Ambleside School

Where children love to learn.

Ambleside is a Christ-centered K-8 school located in Herndon, Virginia, that applies the philosophy of British educator Charlotte Mason. 

In partnership with the family, we encourage children to discover and embrace God’s truth, to link knowing with doing and to love learning.

I am always amazed at the quality and the quantity of enrichment you provide for our kids. Thank you!
— Ambleside Parent

Experience Ambleside


Ambleside is a warm and inviting community where children discover ideas that open their imaginations and challenge them to observe closely and think deeply. We train students as scholars, but Ambleside is about much more than academic achievement.

In this short video, you will hear from Ambleside students, teachers, staff, and parents.
