TORCH: Traditions of Roman Catholic Homes
An association of lay faithful established to promote homeschooling among Catholic families and to support those families who are engaged in providing their children’s primary education at home.
“Since parents have conferred life on their children they have a most solemn obligation to educate their offspring. Hence, parents must be acknowledged as the first and foremost educators of their children. Their role as educators is so decisive that scarcely anything can compensate for their failure in it.” (Gravissimum Educationis #3) http://www.catholic-homeschool.com/
A group of families ( subgroup of the larger TORCH homeschool group) who teach in a co-op setting once per week using the “Classically Catholic Memory” curriculum. This includes Latin, CCC & Scripture, Math, History, Geography, Time Line, Science, Great Words, and public speaking. We meet on 20 Wednesdays throughout the school year from late August through April.
For more information, please contact our parish office, and we’ll direct you to the TORCH representative.
