Welcome to Anacortes Catholic Schoolhouse!
At Catholic Schoolhouse we bring families together, allowing them to share and experience immersion in a loving Catholic Community–a community that strives to grow in virtue and holiness. Together we encounter the true, good, and beautiful while forming tomorrow’s Catholic adults to be light in the world.
The whole family has a place at Catholic Schoolhouse. Our main mission is built on family unity and is designed to be flexible to enrich a family’s educational experience while using classical elements presented in a structured environment.
We are a supplemental program meeting once a week during the school year for four six-week quarters. We also provide planned field trips each quarter that coincide with our content studies, end of the semester group presentations, and saint day celebrations. Throughout the school day, parents will tutor in and visit their children’s classes – observing, assisting, and learning along with them. All students will be guided through sequential topics, rotating over a three-year cycle.
Pre-grammar allows the younger siblings in the family to begin learning ‘like the big kids’. They enjoy actives suited to ages 2-4, including art and science while being immersed in virtue all while learning our Catholic faith.
Grammar students, those traditionally of elementary ages K to 6th grades, will focus on mastering facts in 10 subject areas each week that provide a framework for future knowledge. These facts can be used as springboards for further learning at home, serve as additional contact points to refresh material that was previously taught, introduce new topics, or simply enrich your current homeschooling style.
Dialectic students, typically ages 12 to 15 (7th to 9th grades), will be encouraged to review the memory facts as they delve further into them through discovery and discussion work. They have opportunities for speaking, logic development, and writing while staying focused on fine arts and history time periods, keeping with the tour guide to facilitate family cohesiveness.
Catholic Schoolhouse is more than a day out of the house; it can help bring structure and unity to your entire homeschool experience and will bless your family.
Catholic Schoolhouse is loyal to the magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church.
