How is Catholic Schoolhouse Classical?
Classical education is different.
Are you curious about providing a classical education?
Wondering how to start homeschooling?
Wishing to create an authentically Catholic homeschool?
A classical homeschool experience is a journey you walk with your child, engaging in joyful conversation.
Our classical education method recognizes that your child goes through stages and uses those stages to your advantage.
From birth through adulthood, your child is growing through classical stages–stages where their brain changes.
During the grammar stage, you child’s brain is wired for memory! Classical education grabs the opportunity to create hooks and pegs in your child’s brain through classical memory work of learning facts and information. Catholic Schoolhouse creates these pegs which become hooks on which your child will hang and depend upon with future learning.
Catholic Schoolhouse provides dialectic and rhetoric programs guide students through these developmental changes, helping them to analyze in a respectful way during the dialectic stage (approx. middle school) and gain confidence with communication skills with our rhetoric program.
With our the Catholic Schoolhouse Program, individual families, chapters and co-ops are able to succeed, bring family unity to teaching, and belong to a greater Catholic community.
As children progress through the classical Trivium, each stage represents a change in their brain--a beautiful change designed by God our creator.

Flexible. The key to family unity.
Classical education is an approach that pulls students into the learning, that doesn’t segregate it as a series of lessons. It is a dialogue between teacher and student happening in a natural way. We invite you all into the classroom so that you can become part of that dialogue, then continue that dialogue all week at home–that continuation and flow is what makes your homeschool classical.
Classical Approach – that is a carefully chosen word, because it is our approach. We are not and will not require it to be your approach.
Catholic Schoolhouse is flexible, so that how you have chosen to teach your children, what you have found works with your family style, can be continued at home.
Schools evolved to use grade levels as their structure—but it wasn’t always that way. Think back to the one-room schoolhouse—a place where the entire family went to school together. You can have that one-room schoolhouse in your own home, but you still need some type of foundation… Catholic Schoolhouse gives you that foundation!
Think of Catholic Schoolhouse as the system and program to help you bring joy into your homeschooling.
Catholic Schoolhouse was founded in 2007 to enhance education in the grammar stage by providing classical memory work for the Catholic homeschool. Going beyond simple memory work, the developers enlisted experts in all areas of study and a wide variety of resources, Catholic and secular, homeschool and non-homeschool to determine what information is typically encountered during the elementary school years (K-8).
Individual families, chapters and co-ops are able to succeed, bring family unity to teaching, and belong to a greater Catholic community with Catholic Schoolhouse.
