Our school offers an actual classroom environment Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday each week, while we home-school Monday and Friday each week. The benefits abound. Three days each week my children enjoy time in a classroom with other children, while engaging in clubs, teams, sports, music, and plays if they desire. The other four days each week, I get to have my children at home with me. I have my children more days than they are at school away from me, unlike the 5 away/2 home ratio of traditional schooling. The bonus at our school is the children also learn Latin! Contrary to common remark, the “dead language” proves quite helpful in taking ACT and SAT tests.
For us, Memoria Press teaching material is used in both the classroom and in home-school. These materials are easily accessible and reasonably priced. For grades up to 7th, the curriculum ranges from $290-475, plus the Latin package. For higher grades, price varies based on the options you choose. If you do not have a school nearby using Memoria Press, or one that offers Classical Cottage style Christian education, you can purchase materials from Memoria Press to use for full time home-schooling. The lesson plans are provided and broken down daily for you. Our children are experiencing huge benefits from the four years they have used Memoria Press materials in combination with their learning environment.
In the event we move to a city without a school like the one our children currently attend, I will definitely utilize the Memoria Press materials and attempt to form a group of friends doing the same.
Keep current on the Memoria Press Facebook page. And please share this information with anyone you know who home-schools or is considering homeschooling.
