Catholic Schoolhouse

Welcome to Catholic Schoolhouse! Aside from being part of a Catholic centered community of homeschool families, there are many benefits of belonging to the Phoenix Arizona Chapter of Catholic Schoolhouse. By offering a coordinated Pre-Kindergarten through High School curriculum, we are promoting family cohesiveness. Your own “domestic church” curriculum.

We have a strong fine arts program- where your child is exposed to Art History, biographical information about the art masters, and classical art techniques. The hands-on Science program offers activities and experiments for the Grammar through Dialectic levels.

Scholars 7th – 12th enjoy the challenge of Socratic discussions, writing seminars, reviewing church documents and more.

Curriculum details at: Catholicschoolhouse.org

Our Phoenix Charter meets Mondays 8:00 Mass – 12:30 PM at Resurrection Parish, Tempe.

For more information on our local chapter, contact Jennifer Mikitish at 602-510-4407 phoenixaz@catholicshoolhouse.com (Revised 2/2019)

Traditional Co-Op

The Traditional Co-Op is the perfect way to enrich your home school and build friendships. We pray together and enjoy fellowship and support. There is plenty of classroom learning, Kid time and Mom time.

We meet at St. Andrews Catholic Church on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month (Sept. - Dec. and Feb. - May).

Grades 7th - 10th will participate in two classes... Earth Science Labs and Apologia World History.

Grades K-6th will participate in 4 classes including Public Speaking, Science experiments, P.E., and Choir with Sign Language. Students are often divided into older and younger kid groups and they change classrooms.

Pre-K siblings will learn and have fun doing pre-school activities and free play both indoor and outdoor. Babies and toddlers will enjoy a huge indoor and outdoor nursery.

Classes run from 9:30 am - 12 pm with outside play, picnic and fellowship ending around 1pm.

Other fun things we do include a meet and greet potluck to kick of the year, Mom's only white elephant gift exchange in December, we perform our Choir with Sign Language at the Birthday Party for Jesus talent show in December, we have our very own May Crowning and we have an Open House for our last meeting in May where we invite the Dads (or Moms), grandparents, friends, etc., that don't normally come, to come and see what we do. Students give their final speeches and perform their Spring semester choir with sign language, art work and pictures from the year are on display, we hand out awards and end with a reception.

This is a great group and we would love to have you join! Please register today!
