Welcome to Catholic Schoolhouse
Birmingham – East, AL Chapter
REGISTRATION IS HERE for the 2018/2019 school year!
Catholic Schoolhouse is a supplemental program designed to help homeschool families enrich their educational experience through a flexible approach to learning inspired by classical elements, presented in a structured environment. Grammar students study the same topics at all ages creating family unity. Older students in the dialectic and rhetoric stage meet for discussion and activities that are best done in a group setting–all focusing on helping them become effective Catholic adults.
The whole family has a place at Catholic Schoolhouse. A nursery is available for babies & toddlers so Moms can assist and observe classes hands free! Children from 4 years old to 11 years study the same topics in the grammar program, delving deeper into the material as they grow older. Dialectic stage students (students grades 7th – 9th) have opportunities for discussion, logic development, and speaking, while staying focused on the fine arts and history time periods of the tour guide to facilitate family cohesiveness. Rhetoric students (10th-12th) continue with more opportunities for group discussion and expanded studies. For the 2018-2019 school year, we will be studying Tour II, which covers history from Creation through the 1500s.
The classes meet once a week during the school year during four six-week quarters, in addition to providing planned field trips each quarter that coincide with our content studies. Throughout the school day, parents will visit their children’s classes, observing, assisting, and learning along with them. All children will be guided through sequential topics, rotating over a three-year cycle.
Catholic Schoolhouse can help bring structure and cohesiveness to your entire homeschool experience and will bless your family.
We would love to have you join our community. Please get in touch to arrange a visit or attend an information night to learn more.
Catholic Schoolhouse is loyal to the magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church.
