Choosing a Catholic High School Curriculum {Not Back 2 School Blog Hop}

Please Note~ This post may contain affiliate links. If you choose to click on a link, add it to your cart and complete your purchase, I will receive a small percentage. We are very grateful for this additional source of income. Thank you.



Finding the right curriculum for your child can be tough, especially if your a Catholic family. Many of the big curriculum companies are protestant and not always friendly when it comes to Catholics. Resources for Catholic families have grown, but we just don't have the selection like the rest of the homeschooling families out there. 


1. Mother of Divine Grace

Mother of Divine Grace uses a Catholic, classical approach to learning. The program follows the natural pattern of a child's learning process. The main focus of the curriculum is to teach the children how to think and apply their knowledge. Families can enroll with the school to receive counseling and tutoring or they can follow the curriculum on their own. They offer materials and lessons for grades Kindergarten through 12th. We've used the religion books recommended by Mother of Divine Grace. The books provide students with a strong understanding of their faith. If you're interested in knowing more about the Catholic faith ir just want to really know what are beliefs are, I definitely recommend reading the high school religion books by Fr. John Laux.


2. Seton

Seton Home Study School is based out of Virginia. Their approach to learning is a classic, scholastic style. Families have the option of enrolling or just using the curriculum on their own.  The company is nationally accredited and covers grades Pre-K through 12th. The early years curriculum is a workbook style, but changes once the students get to high school. It's known for being rigorous and developing great learners. We've never officially enrolled int he program, but have used a few of their workbooks over the years. There spelling and English workbooks are fantastic. I look over their high school literature suggestions when creating my students list. 


3. Mater Ambalis

Mater Ambalis is a free Catholic Charlotte Mason program. The curriculum is broken up into levels. The Pre-Level starts with children ages 4 to 6 and the program continues on until high school. This program is very heavy in reading and uses real life books to teach children. We used levels 1 and 2 when the kids were little. My kids didn't enjoy the lessons, so we ended up adapting the lessons to fit our needs. I did look at the high school books and lessons to plan out my own students high school path. 


4. Kolbe Academy

Kolbe Academy is an orthodox Catholic curriculum. The company offers curriculum for students in grades Kindergarten through 12th. Kolbe Academy is a full service curriculum provider and book store. Families can fully enroll in homeschool courses, online courses, or purchase individual courses to use. We've never used Kolbe before, but I've heard things about the company from others who have.


5. RC History

RC History is a Catholic, classical program. This one we know a lot about. We've used this program for the past few years.This company is not an all-in-one curriculum. It's main focus is religion and history with a little bit of science thrown in. The required reading books for the older ages are great for an Honors English class. This is our second year using RC history for high school. Both my kids will be reading books like Don Quixote and The Three Musketeers. The program is divided in to 4 years and is taught in chronological order. The best part is families can be taught the \same subject at he same time. Each year is broken up into 4 levels...Beginner (K-3rd), Grammar (4th-6th), Logic (7th-9th), and Rhetoric (10th-12th). This our second time working through this history time period. We started when the kids where in the Grammar stage and are currently in the Logic and Rhetoric stage. 


6. Homeschool Connections

Homeschool Connections is well known and loved by everyone that uses it. Sadly with out limited internet access, we are not able to participate in the live classes. We'd have to head to the library every day just to get our school work done. We would definitely be using this program if we could. They offer recorded and live classes for middle and high school students. They even offer dual enrollment for high school students through Franciscan University in Steubenville.

7. Memoria Press

Memoria Press is not Catholic, but is a Christian company. They offer a wide variety of resources for homeschoolers. Families can purchase a packaged curriculum or buy certain books to use for various subjects. We've used their Latin program, Literature study guides, science books, and geography books over the years. The program is a classical approach to education. They offer lessons for Kindergarten to 12th grade. 


8. Our Lady of Victory 

Our Lady of Victory provides Catholics homeschooling curriculum and books. The company has been a leader in the Catholic homeschooling community since 1977. They offer Catholic families a traditional education to raise steadfast Catholic children.


9. Rolling Acres School

Rolling Acres School is an online Catholic classical curriculum. They offer resources for co-op programs, online programs, and at home programs. They currently have full enrollement for 7th-9th grades. 


10. St. Thomas Aquinas

St. Thomas Aquinas is a classical liberal arts curriculum. They offer curriculum for students in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade. They offer course plans and high school study guides. Families can enroll and receive report cards and transcripts.

Socialization It Really Is Not That Hard {Not Back 2 School Blog Hop}

Please Note~ This post may contain affiliate links. If you choose to click on a link, add it to your cart and complete your purchase, I will receive a small percentage. We are very grateful for this additional source of income. Thank you.



Socialization! 
It's a such a big word and people have definite ideas and opinions on what socialization is. Whether you're a newbie or a veteran homeschooler, I'm sure you've heard the questions about socialization!

What will your children do for friends?
How will they ever learn how to talk to people?
Aren't you worried that they'll be lonely? 
You're child will be a social outcast!

Then they go on and on about that one, weird homeschooler they met and how he could't talk to anyone and just stared down at his feet. He was awkward, was dressed weird and they felt so bad for him. The poor dear.

Well, after 12 years of homeschooling, I have to say I'm no longer worried about the lack socialization homeschoolers supposedly get or don't get. Sure we've had some years when things were slower than others, but there have been years when we were too busy.
It was almost impossible to fit school in!

So what have we done over the years for socialization?
Well, you're in luck. Today I'm going to share a few ways we've found over the years.


1. Homeschool Support Groups

When we first started homeschooling, I joined two different support groups. One was a secular group, while the other one was part of a local Catholic church. Both groups offered field trips, park days, and parties to attend. This was a great way for the kids to just get out and play with their friends. Sure park days may stop when the kids get older, but they can till get together for field trips and to play a round of kickball. Over the summer both kids enjoyed hanging with their friends at the pool. I have already joined an local group that is planning field trips just for high school students. A local mom asked if there was any interest and she received quite a few yeses. So far, the field trips she has planned look great!



2. Homeschool Co-ops

We've participated in 4 different co-ops over the years. In fact, we joined a new one this year for the kids to take a science class and a few other classes as well. Over the years, the kids have learned art, music, science, history, government, etc. Some of the classes were large and met all day, while others were small and only met for a few hours a week. All you need is a few friends to get together to hold a class. It's not that hard to organize and get started.



3. Sports

This is an easy one if your child is into sports. Over the years, the kids have participated in our counties sport programs. Soccer, baseball, and swim have been taken. Therese even did a year of ballet! Now both kids are part of nationwide shooting team. If you look hard enough, you'll be able to find something your child will like. Karate, bowling league, cross country, and so on. Our kids don't participate, but in our area there are 2 homeschool sport leagues. They play other homeschoolers and private schools in our area. Kids can play volleyball, soccer, basketball, cross country, flag football, and track and field.




4. Religious Education Classes

Take part in the classes your church has to offer. Our kids attended classes in order to make their First Penance, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation. If they start in the younger grades, the kids will be with the same kids for 8 or more years. Life long friendships can easily be made or just a few acquaintances to socialize with can be made too. Both my kids are out of the classes now, but they are now volunteering to help with the classes.



5. Clubs

Here the options are endless. Drama club, choir, 4-H, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, American Heritage Club, Troops of St. George, Blue Knights, Little Flowers, Debate team, Speech club, etc. There are so many out there, I could never list them all. If you don't have a club near you, maybe think about starting up one. A few years ago, I helped lead a St. Zita's Home Ec. club for our girls. It was geared for young ladies in grades 5th-8th. We played games, did crafts, baked yummy goodies, planned tea parties, and learn morals and values. The girls had fun and were able to see their friends.



6. Church Youth Group

You'll find that most churches now offer some type of youth group for the kids in middle and high school. My kids have been part of our church's youth group for a few years now. They spend time in prayer, visit with seminarians, watch up-lifting movies, listen to Catholic speakers, attend the Pro-Life march, have cooking challenges, outdoor game night, go on trips (hikes, tubing, amusement parks), and attend Mass together. This summer, Michael attended the week long work camp with over 800 teens from our diocese. They helped fix up people's homes and spread the word of God. Youth group is a great place to find friends and grow in their faith.



7. Volunteer Work

This can be done almost anywhere. Both Michael and Therese have volunteered at our local library. Michael shelved returned books. Therese helped with the toddler hour and signed young readers up for the summer reading program. They volunteer ever June with our church to hand out food from our local food bank. This year both of them are helping with our churches religious education classes. Michael is an usher and altar server at church. Look into summer work camps, Vacation Bible school, or just help an elderly neighbor do yard work. Friends can be made with people of all ages.



8. Old-Fashion Pen Pals

When the kids were little, they had pen pals they wrote. We found them through a homeschool pen pal group. I can't remember what it is now and I'm not sure if it even exist anymore.With all the online homeschool communities finding a pen pal should be easy. My kids wrote back and forth for about a year (maybe two). They were so young the friendships just didn't progress, but they enjoyed it at the time. What child doesn't like getting mail?



9. Family and Friends

This seems so obvious, but I think we often overlook what is right in front our faces. Family parties and holiday dinners, cousins hanging out, family vacations together, cookouts with friends, etc. Many of our children's friends are the children of our friends and family. Who doesn't have fond memories of Sunday afternoons with their cousins?
If you're lucky enough to have neighbors, kids can easily make friends with the kids in the neighborhood. This hasn't been a real option for us. Therese did have a little girl that lived nearby, but she moved away a few years ago. Now we have lots of little kids. Maybe she should offer a babysitting service.


10. Part time work

We haven't quite ventured into this one yet. Next year, we will though. We'll have to wait and see what they choose to do. Will they work at a summer camp or give fast food a try.

5 Amazing Benefits of Homeschooling High School {Not Back 2 School Blog Hop}

Please Note~ This post may contain affiliate links. If you choose to click on a link, add it to your cart and complete your purchase, I will receive a small percentage. We are very grateful for this additional source of income. Thank you.




Contrary to popular beliefs there are plenty of advantages to homeschooling high school. You will not harm your child if they don't attend your local public school. If you think about it, in the grand scheme of things, how important are the 4 years kids spend in high school. As adults, we know our lives didn't begin or end when high school started or ended. 

So what are some of the advantages of homeschooling high school?


1. Flexibility

This is a huge bonus when choosing to homeschool. You can travel whenever. A few years ago, we took a 3 week cross country road trip. Our kids learned more about our great country than they ever would have in a stuffy classroom. You can take field trips to learn about different topics. You can plan a college trip when no else is. Your child can get an internship in a field they are interested in or a part time job to make some money for college.


2. School Tailored to Your Child's Needs and Interests

Does your child love science or English? Homeschooling allows you to create a curriculum that focuses on your child interests. They can take an extra science class, volunteer at a local animal shelter, or take college classes to see what they want to study when they go off to college. 
If your child is struggling in math, you can work at a pace that works for them. If math comes easily to them have them work harder. We have friends whose daughter completed Algebra and Geometry in one year. She loves math and enjoys getting ahead! Does your child love to read? Homeschooling gives them more time to read. Therese has read 115 books already this year!


3. College Credit

College can be started earlier. Most local community colleges allow high school students to take college classes at 15 or 16. This allows them to earn high school and college credit at the same time. Just check with your local college to see what they require. Taking college courses can save them money and time when they head off to a 4-year college.



4. Unique Learning Adventures

Learning can happen anywhere. Students can do an internship or an apprenticeship if they are looking at a trade school. Both of these options will give them real life experience which is extremely important when applying for a job. 
Our local arboretum and animal wild life center have opportunities for students who are interested in biology fields. They can take classes or participate in a weekly class. Our local vet offered our daughter a chance to spend a few days shadowing a vet to see if she really wanted to become a veterinarian. 
Is your student business minded? Do they have an idea for a business? They can research and start up their own business. This teaches them a wide variety of useful skills. 
All of these amazing learning adventures can count towards your students electives. 


5. Strong Family Bonds

At a time when most kids spend more time with their friends than their family, homeschooling allows just the opposite. Homeschooling allows those family bonds to stay strong. Siblings will be encouraged to stay close instead of ditching each other to hang with peers their own age. As a parent, you'll still be the main influence in your child's life. Society, friends, teachers, and the media will  not be shaping your child's morals and values. You can help them on the difficult path of growing up, before they head out into the world to spread their wings.


If you've been homeschooling a few years, what have you found to be a huge benefit of homeschooling?

8 Things to Know About Homeschooling High School {Not Back to School Blog Hop}

Please Note~ This post may contain affiliate links. If you choose to click on a link, add it to your cart and complete your purchase, I will receive a small percentage. We are very grateful for this additional source of income. Thank you.




Hello there! Are you stressed? Are your unsure where to begin? Are you in a comma from all the information out there? I hear ya.

Homeschooling the high school years seems scary. It's a daunting task many of us homeschoolers fear. When our kids are little, high school seems so far away. We tell ourselves... we have plenty of time to figure it out. But somehow, it seems to creep up on us faster than we anticipated! I know it was that way for me. So rest assured, you are not alone.

So today, I thought I'd share a few things I've learned over the last year. This will be my second year homeschooling high school and I now have TWO kiddos in high school. Crazy, I know!


1. You don't have to do follow the high school curriculum in the state you live in!

Shocker, right? Sure, it might be a great place to start to see what is the typical courses taken, but you don't have to follow them. You can create your own courses and gear your curriculum to your child's needs and likes. If you child knows they want to be a marine biologist create a high school plan that works towards that goal. You can decide your child's courses and credits. I do recommend checking the requirements of the colleges your child may be interested in. Colleges have different requirements for certain subjects. For instance, one college Michael is looking at requires 4 math and 4 science courses. Most of the colleges, we come across have only required 3. A lot of this depends on the type of college and degree your child plans on pursuing.

**You do have to follow your state's homeschool laws, but you are under no obligation to do "school" at home.


2. Your child doesn't have to take advanced or honors classes.

You hear some many parents comment on how their child is in all honors or AP courses. In reality, this is not necessary for your child to take these courses to get into college There are plenty of students out there that get accepted into college and have never taken any advanced classes. Colleges are looking for well-rounded students. In fact, many of the young students I know have admitted that the advance classes are really not that challenging. Many have expressed frustration that the classes didn't really prepare them for college. So create your own course and go with it!

3. You don't have to know the upper math and science classes to teach them.

This is a big one. I can't tell you how often I have been asked how can I teach geometry or chemistry. I'll be the first to admit, it scared me to think I had to teach those course. I hated chemistry! After a little bit of research, I realized it was going to be no big deal. There are plenty of ways for your child to learn these courses, even if you struggled with them back in the day. Your child can learn on their own with textbooks and videos, online classes, co-op classes, or you could even higher a tutor. There are even few homeschool curriculum companies that allow you to register for a few classes. You child would have a teacher assigned to them and work through the material. Don't worry there is more than one way to homeschool our kids. You just have to figure out what works best for your child. For example, this year both Michael and Therese are taking a biology course with a lab at a local co-op. They're excited and so am I. They get to do all the fun labs and I don't have dissect anything on my kitchen table. It's a win-win!


4. You child does not have to be in the public high school to experience life.

UGH!! The dreaded socialization topic. My kids will be so deprived if they don't go to school. Blah, Blah, Blah. Have you heard that one? I'm sure you have. We all have. In fact, we've heard it so many times we'd all be wealthy if we had a dollar for every time we've been asked that one.
So what are are poor deprived children to do? Get involved! There are so many opportunists out there. Homeschool co-ops, homeschool support groups, church youth groups, sports, volunteer work, internships, part time jobs, etc. My kids have made fantastic friends over the years. They are actively involved in our community and get plenty of socialization. Just yesterday I saw a funny meme that summed it all up. It said "Yes, I know my kids are socialized! I'm their chauffeur."  When you're running out almost every day fro different events, I doubt you have a socialization issue.


5. Colleges are not expecting a a set curriculum or a certain list of books.

I'm not even sure where this myth came from. It sounds completely absurd. Every state has different guidelines, so how could their be a master list out there to conform to. It just doesn't exist. When I was starting to lay out my children's four year plan for high school, I looked at a few different resources.


  • Curriculum from three different homeschool curriculum companies
  • Online resources from other homeschooling moms
  • My high school guidelines ( I went to a private college-prep high school)
  • Colleges (to see what was required)


I never looked at the courses our local high school offered. If I though their curriculum was great, I would have sent my kids there in the first place. I did look to see how they broke down the 3 different diplomas students could achieve. So after researching for a few months, I created my own plan for them. Both my kids will graduate high school with an advanced diploma. This is what the homeschool companies and the local school district call it. Since both of them are heading off to college, I wanted to give them the best start. The advance diploma just means they took more classes than what is required for a general high diploma.

This is were your child and you need to sit down and talk. What are their goals? Where do they see themselves? Trade school? Community college? 4 year college? Sit down, talk, and make a plan.


6. You can make your own transcript!

Yes, I know. I've had so many people tell me that your child will need a "real" transcript to get a job or get into college. You can make your own. Be sure it has everything on it that is required. Make it clear and easy to read. There are so many samples out there. Google it and you'll see what you have to do. It doesn't need to be signed or notarized by anyone. I suggest keeping detailed records of your child's work. I created a binder for both my kids. It contains course descriptions for all the subjects they have studied. I got the idea from a book I read for a review a few months ago. You can check it here. It never hurts to be thorough.


7. You child does not have to be one grade level. 

We all know the standard path of high school.

algebra 1, geometry, algebra 2, calculus
earth science, biology, chemistry, physics

You get the picture. It's perfectly O.K. if your child is not on that path. If you child is behind or has a learning disability work with it. Just because Bobby is behind in math a grade doesn't mean he won't get into college. I never took calculus and I was accepted into every college I applied to. Colleges are willing to work with students to help them achieve their goals. I knew plenty of girls I went to college with that were accepted and had to take a review math course. They all went on to be successful business women out in the real world. Our goal as parents is to help our child learn and teach them how to continue to learn. Just because you got all A's in high school, doesn't mean you will in college. It's a whole different world. If we prepare our kids to succeed, they will.


8. Relax and Enjoy the Ride

This is a big one and it's rather important. I know it's easier said than done. I still freak out every now and then. However, I know My kids are working hard, doing their best, and learning as they go. My goal has always been to create life long learners and I think I have done that. Enjoy the ups and downs. Before you know it, they'll be packing their bags, heading out the door, and starting a whole new journey. One that we can't go on. All we can do is pray, hope, and don't worry.

Happy Homemaker Monday~ August 12, 2019

Please Note~ This post may contain affiliate links. If you choose to click on a link, add it to your cart and complete your purchase, I will receive a small percentage. We are very grateful for this additional source of income. Thank you.



Good morning! I hope y'all had a wonderful weekend. We had a relatively low key weekend. We did attend a sports banquet for Michael's team. It was fun! We won a few door prizes. The most exciting one for us girls was a 6 month membership to a local gym. It has a pool, so Therese is thrilled. She can keep up her swimming.The funny thing is we were thinking of joining, so winning allows us to check out the place to see if we like it. 





So let's get into our Happy Homemaker Monday visit. 
Be sure to stop in and visit with Sandra and all the other ladies! 


~The Weather~

It's hot today, but it looks like the temperatures are going to drop a little mid-week, but then they head back up at the end of the week. I love summer and the warm weather, but I'm kind of looking forward to fall and the cooler temps. I've been wanting to decorate the house for fall.

Monday~ Mostly Sunny, 91*
Tuesday~ Scattered Thunderstorms, 90*
Wednesday~ Scattered Thunderstorms, 84*
Thursday~ Partly Cloudy, 84*
Friday~ Mostly Sunny, 86*
Saturday~ Partly Cloudy, 87*
Sunday~ Partly Cloudy, 89*


~Breakfast this Morning~

Coffee, of course. I also snacked on a oatmeal raisin cookie. I tried a new recipe yesterday. I think I found a gluten free oatmeal raisin cookie everyone enjoyed. I'll have to write up the recipe and share. I took my grandma's recipe and adjusted it to make it gluten free.  



~Right now I am~

Writing up this post and trying to plan the rest of the day. I have a cat by my feet and a dog sleeping next to me. Everyone is curled up nice and cozy.



~On my nightstand~

My Bath and Body lotion. It's a  new scent, Desert Wildflowers, I picked up a month ago. A cup of water from the night before. My Fitbit that needs charging and my a book that I'm currently reading.



~What I'm reading~

I have 5 books going at the moment. I really need to finish up a few. I just bought a few new ones at the thrift store and can't wait to start them! I just need more time to read.

Front Yard Gardens: Growing More Than Grass
Each New Day by Corrie Ten Boom
Here's to Us by Elin Hilderbrand
Let Me In by Donna Kauffman
The Summer of Sunshine and Margot by Susan Mallery.



~On the To Do List this Week~

Mass on Thursday for the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Michael has to serve. A doctors appointment for one of the kids and an ear check up for the dog. She had a double ear infection at her last check up. My poor baby.




~TV shows I watched this week~

O.K. I'll admit I watched the reboot of Beverly Hills 90210. I watched the show back in the day, so I wanted to see how the knew one would be. I didn't like it. It was nothing like I thought it would be. I honestly thought it was going to start up years later and pick up with their lives after college. I had no clue it was going to be a show about the actors getting back together to redo the series. So far, I''m not impressed at all. I don't think I'll even watch the next episode. It was a big let down. 



~What I'm working on~

I'm currently finishing up lesson plans. I'm almost done. I ordered the last of their books. We have most of our new supplies for the year. We are almost ready to go. I'm not sure where summer went, but it sure went by quickly.
I'd love to paint the walls in the stairway leading to our basement. They haven't been painted since we moved here and could use a fresh coat of paint!


~On the Menu~

Monday~ 
Oven fried chicken, mac n' cheese, beans (didn't end up doing this last week)

Tuesday~ 
Chicken Fettuccine (gluten free)

Wednesday~ 
Turkey Stroganoff with gluten free egg noodles

Thursday~ 
Hamburgers, macaroni salad

Friday~ 
Gnocchi with marinara sauce 

Saturday~ 
Roasted chicken, potatoes, and veggies

Sunday~ 
Dinner out 



~From the camera~



~What I'm thinking about~

Definitely the school year starting up soon. I hope the year goes well and both ids enjoy the classes they are taking at a local co-op.
I'm praying for a great year teaching my little first graders this year at church. I hope we have an amazing class.  Therese is helping this year, so I'm excited we get to do this together for a few years.
Michael got his learner's permit this week, so that takes into a whole new world. I can't believe I have a child that will be driving soon. It seems like yesterday we were bringing him home. Time has flown by so quickly. It's a little scarier to think about the future and what life will be like once the kids move out. We spend so much time taking care of them. I can't imagine my life without them. 



~What I'm thankful for~

Our new kitty is healthy. He's stumbling while walking was his ears. It looks like he needed another does of meds for his ear mites. I guess he had a bad case of them. Thankfully he is doing better and is still the sweetest, fluff ball. Now that he's been on good food and is taking nutrients, he is looking great. His hair is so soft and growing every day. He's going to be one handsome little guy. 



~Quote for the Week~


A friend shared this quote and I thought it was beautiful and so true. It goes back to that old saying actions speak louder than words. 

I hope you all have a very blessed week!


Till Next Time,
Monique
