Ambleside does not yet have a year 12. This is what one of my students studied for 12th grade. This is only the books for her first 12 week term. She has used Charlotte Mason's methods all her life and is accustomed to reading classic literature. It is based upon her personal interests. We have starred the books that we feel are the most important.
