Welcome to the Classical Liberal Arts Academy! If you’re a Catholic homeschooling parent or private school administrator, you are likely looking for a program that offers your students the education that was enjoyed by the saints throughout history–a true Catholic homeschool curriculum. You want your students to learn what St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Ignatius of Loyola studied when they were in school. If that’s the case, then the Classical Liberal Arts Academy is your only option.
What’s Different about the CLAA?
If you look at what any other Catholic homeschool curriculum offers, you’ll find that it’s not solving the problems of modern education. The Classical Liberal Arts Academy provides Catholic homeschooling families and private schools with seven benefits they cannot find anywhere else:
1. We focus on the true end of Catholic education.
2. We restore the classical liberal arts.
3. We teach traditional Catholic values.
4. We focus on subjects, not grade-levels.
5. We allow families to study year-round.
6. We make Catholic homeschooling simple.
7. We make Catholic homeschooling affordable.
Thus, the Classical Liberal Arts Academy is the only source of true classical education for Catholic homeschool families and private schools.
1. We Focus on the True End of Catholic Homeschooling
The end of Catholic education is to lead children to know, love and serve God in this life, for we cannot predict how God will use them in the world. In our program, therefore, we avoid worldly anxieties and focus on our chief end.
2. We Restore the Classical Liberal Arts
Modern study programs have abandoned the studies of the saints, but in our program, students have access to the ancient curriculum. Thus, our children can enjoy the same education the saints did.
3. We Teach Traditional Catholic Values
In the Bible, St. Paul in warned: “Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” We do not promote modern liberal moral values, but draw our moral teaching from writers who are in heaven.
4. We Focus on Subjects, not Grade Levels
The modern grade level system distracts from the subjects our children should be focused on. In our Catholic homeschool curriculum, however, students focus on real subjects, not artificial grade levels. Therefore, all students can start at the beginning of the true classical curriculum and work steadily through the core subject areas. This allows for great progress over time.
5. We Allow Families to Study Year-Round
Other study programs provide students with just enough material to cover minimum yearly requirements. When the school year ends, there’s no more to study, until the next year of supplies are purchased. In the Classical Liberal Arts Academy, students can study year-round and they’ll never run out of new study material.
6. We Make Catholic Homeschooling Simple
School publishers produce constantly changing study materials for complex, modern school programs, and expect that state money will be available to pay for it. In our Catholic homeschool curriculum, subjects are reduced in number and simple enrollment options include all necessary study materials, assessments, grading, records, and support.
7. We Make Catholic Homeschooling Affordable
The errors of modern schools make education very expensive. We, on the other hand, offer self-paced online courses for as little as $25, and this includes everything needed for studies. Subscription plans make all courses available for a simple, monthly fee. Every Catholic homeschool family and private school can afford to offer students a true, classical Catholic education.
