Ashlar Lingo

The way we describe things changes the visual images we see in our minds. At Ashlar, we have found words that we believe give a more accurate description of our ways than what the more traditional words tend to mentally represent. We hope you enjoy Learning Our Lingo!

  • Instead of classrooms, we have STUDIOS.


  • Teacher-directed activities are called INVITATIONS.


  • Self-directed time and free-play is EXPLORATION.


  • Ashlar students are called QUESTERS.


  • We refer to our teachers as our MENTORS.

  • In place of core curriculum, we have GUIDEWORK.


  • We call individualized assignments GOALS.


  • Group assignments are our QUESTS.

The Ashlar Way is unlike the images summoned using traditional words.

This approach needs a whole new language.
