Interest and SupportPotentially starting: 2020-2021 Academic Year
With the closing of the boys high school of St. Michael’s Prep, the previously existing need for a girl’s equivalent, and the coming challenges posed by the gender/sexual curriculum in public and charter schools, the need for classical Catholic education in Orange County, California has never been greater.
Blessed John Henry Newman Catholic Church, a parish of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, is gauging serious interest in starting a robust Home School Co-op program at Santiago Retreat Center in Silverado, next door to the new Norbertine Abbey of St. Michael’s location. The goal would be to have both volunteer parent teachers as well as paid full-time teachers to provide a flexible format of education from the traditional core curriculum of the liberal arts.
Students who desire only enrichment, students who wish to do a hybrid of enrichment and take some formal classes, or students who wish to take only formal classes five days a week may do so. If enough interest and financial commitment is made, we will form a PSP to be able to grant diplomas.
This homeschool co-op would provide a Pre-K thru 12 flexible high-quality education at a minimal cost with daily Mass in the Ordinariate Form and religious education and Sacraments of Initiation, being a ministry of the parish.
