Our program is designed to provide a well-rounded education consistent with the classical model. Subjects include Literature, English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Theology and Latin.
We use an integrated history and literature-based program ideal for use with the entire family. It presents history from a specifically Catholic worldview, in chronological order, beginning with ancient times and moving through cycles into modern times. Literature, geography, arts and sciences are all connected within the time period studied. Children are actively involved in the learning process with opportunities for activities and discussions that cross classes and ages. Curricula for other subjects is carefully chosen based on our Director, teachers, and parents based on years of experience in both traditional schooling and homeschooling environments.
Students attend classes Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30am to 3:00pm on the St. Thomas More campus. Classes are limited to 12 students per class to provide a high level of teacher-student interaction. Our mixed-age classes enable students to pace their studies at an individual level and develop social skills from a wider range of peers than in conventional classrooms. Teachers provide lesson plans for each week, which detail the material to be covered on class days and homeschool days.
Starting in middle school, teachers provide regular tests in class to check comprehension of the material. Parents who desire more testing can use additional tests provided in the books. Some parents choose to periodically check their child’s progress with standardized testing; others do not. Parents have the freedom to make these decisions based on the needs of their individual children, their long-term education goals, and other personal preferences.
