We are a small group of Catholic homeschoolers meeting just twelve Friday mornings in the Fall and twelve in the Spring. We are based at Assumption Church in historic Germantown, in the heart of Nashville. We offer enrichment in the areas of music, art and science for the younger set, while we also offer writing for the older children. We hope to build a community of parents who can support and encourage each other, and share resources and wisdom. This as a ministry to the families we serve and we hope this chapter of Catholic Schoolhouse will be a blessing to many!
We are not a co-op in the classic sense, as we are not a drop-off program, we are not free, and we do not require parents to teach. We do, however, require parents to stay for the duration of our program each time we meet.
This past year our chapter has included a Nursery, a Montessori classroom for 3- to 6-year-olds, a Grammar class, and a Dialectic class. The Montessori scholars have enjoyed a hybrid approach that mixes the Catholic Schoolhouse curriculum with both Montessori and Catechesis of the Good Shepherd lessons.
