Our highly qualified faculty provides academic motivation and evaluation of home school student achievement through a Liberal Arts program for Catholic home schooling families and students in private schools desiring to supplement their studies via a classical Catholic home schooling program. The academy's theology program,  guides home school students through the Church's teaching in a four year sequence based on the Universal Catechism of the Catholic Church.
The Academy's mission is to support, but not to supplant, the homeschool parent as primary educator by providing a rigorous college preparatory and classical homeschool curriculum which challenges the intellect and nourishes the spirit with the riches of the Catholic tradition. Our homeschool curriculum contains both live interactive courses as well as self-directed study courses hence allowing structure but also flexiblity as sometimes needed for the homeschool student.
