Catholic Homeschool Curriculum Review

Catholic homeschool curriculum with a Charlotte Mason homeschool philosophy = Mother of Divine Grace.


I have eight children and have been homeschooling for eleven years. When I was faced with the thought of high school transcripts, I decided to enroll my children in Mother of Divine Grace (MODG).

I really like that it based on a living books - Charlotte Mason philosophy. It uses Saxon math - which I already had been using and really love. The books used for literature and history are usually ones I can get at the library. I also enjoy the emphasis on poetry memorization.

My kids like to have a prepared daily list of things they need to do. It is also flexible in that you are still the primary educator. You can move your child ahead, or use a different math program if you want to.

I enrolled my children, because I wanted transcripts. If you don't need that level of support or need transcripts, you can just order the syllabus and do it on your own. I was very glad to have the transcripts when my two oldest applied to college. I really dreaded having to put together a portfolio. I am just not that organized. Since MODG is accredited, the colleges did not question the transcripts at all.

Mother of Divine Grace also provides online classes and teacher support. I have used their additional support to have teachers work one on one with my children for several classes. This was a big help at times when I was overwhelmed or the subject matter was beyond me; Advanced Latin, for example.

If you are looking for a curriculum that is:

1. Classical
2. Based on living books (Charlotte Mason)
3. Rigorous
4. Catholic

I would recommend you look in to MODG.

Mary, thanks for the Charlotte Mason/Catholic homeschool curriculum recommendation - excellent review! Blessings, Heather

Catholic Homeschool Curriculum: Mother of Divine Grace for 1st & 3rd Grade

Classical, Catholic Homeschool Curriculum

Classical, Catholic Homeschool Curriculum

We are enjoying using Mother of Divine Grace this year. This is a classical, Catholic homeschool curriculum and my kids are enjoying the religion, poetry, art, music, and language arts.

We are using Math-u-See for math and Sonlight for history/geography. I agree with the comments about Spelling Workout and am looking for an alternative, as well as exploring options other than our current Abeka Science.

Thanks for telling sharing about Mother of Divine Grace, Bridget! Other parents looking for Catholic homeschool curriculum will find your recommendation helpful. Blessings, Heather :)

For those of you who love the classical approach to education. Mother of Divine Grace Catholic curriculum in the best!

After reading The Well Trained Mind, I was both excited and overwhelmed. MODG brings it all together with easy to follow lesson plans, beautiful classical literature, and more. I've used several, and couldn't be happier.
