How to Start a Program

Start your own Catholic Schoolhouse Community–You can do it!

Starting a group is quite straightforward and we will help you every step of the way.   Begin by reading How to Start a Program for an overview about what is involved in beginning to form your group. complete the Interested Director Form and someone will get in touch with you to begin the process.

The next step would be to schedule an information night to assess the interest in your area.  When you are ready, let us know and we will get you additional information to help you set up your information night and begin the director training process.

You probably still have many questions.  That’s to be expected.  We can help by sharing the wisdom learned by all of our Catholic Schoolhouse Chapters.  As a director, you get access to our director’s only online community and all the consulting you require.  Many moms begin a co-op by getting together with a few friends and spending countless hours brainstorming and planning.  Why reinvent the wheel?  Our tried and true structure will ensure your success, right from the beginning!

“I just wanted to take a moment to thank Kathy and company for all of the resources that are available to directors.

We are a brand new, fairly large chapter (40 kids, all three levels) and only one family (mine) has ever participated in a co-op of this type. 

Getting this thing off the ground has been a massive project, but the resources here, in the training webinars and on the director’s site have been extremely helpful. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

Catholic Schoolhouse has been such a blessing to all our families.  It has simplified our social calendars, provided opportunities for presentations and music, given our kids positive peer relationships, and made great friends for curriculum sharing among us moms–all in an academic setting without missing a school day.  We hope you are able to bring this blessing to your area!

    • Hi Alexis,

      We would be happy to discuss with you. I will e-mail you to get your phone number. You ask a very good question. All Catholic Schoolhouse proceeds, from registration fees and book sales have been rolled back into the program for product development and support. Currently (2016) we are expanding training and development of a full upper level program. The Supply fees and tuition collected bythe director are kept in the local program, used to purchase supplies and compensate those that work in the program. This cost structure is a huge part of the success of our Catholic Schoolhouse chapters, increasing dedication and mitigating burnout. I look forward to speaking with your more.

      Kathy
