Three More CM Curricula Compared

Dear Reader,

See my most updated post on CM curricula here.

I recently shared with you a chart comparing four of the biggest Charlotte Mason based curricula out there (find it here). I have less familiarity with this next batch of programs but in order to be as fair as possible, I have also tried to find the same information for them. This time we will consider A Modern Charlotte Mason (MCM), Living Books Curriculum (LBC), and Higher Up and Further In (HUFI) from Charlotte Mason Help. These three, with the four I look at previously, make up the bulk of the “Charlotte Mason Curricula” listed by Ambling Along Together in their list of CM resources (note that there are a few other curricula currently on their list which has been updated over time; look for a future post on these; there are also CM “adaptable” and CM “influenced” curricula which I have not looked at).

Here then is the pdf chart of these three curricula compared:


As before, feel free to let me know what can be added or corrected, as long as it is true to the philosophy of the curriculum itself.

    I very much appreciate the two detailed comparisons you have put together! I have been homeschooling for three years and have finally decided to choose a full Charlotte Mason guided program but it has been overwhelming. You have done a wonderful job and pointed out a few resources I didn’t know about. Thank you! I did want to point out a possible inaccuracy, or ask for clarification. You linked to saying you had left out two resources because they had a specific spin being Catholic/LDS. There are actually three sites left out, one listed as Catholic, one listed as secular (Wildwood), and the third doesn’t appear to be LDS either (A Gentle Feast). Maybe that other site has shifted entries around since you took the time to make your comparison. I happen to be LDS not looking for a specific LDS curriculum, just biblical based in general, but I feel like the statement about omissions could potentially be misleading. Can you identify which omitted resource is LDS?


    • Thanks for the heads up. I’ll look at it and get back to you. I’ve never heard of Wildwood! It’s amazing how much there is out there when you start looking.


      • I just looked back at the Ambling Along Together page and I do think they have changed their list of curricula so I altered the post to account for that. I will try to look at Wildwood and a Gentle Feast at some point; I had not heard of either.
