About Us

Hello and thank you for your interest in CHRSM (Catholic Homeschool Resource & Support Ministry)! We are a volunteer run ministry of St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Purcellville. We are now accepting applications for the 2024-2025 school year. Our course schedule for the upcoming school year will be released in early March. Please read below for instructions on how to apply to be added to our list of potential new families.

There are many wonderful homeschool educational opportunities available to us in Loudoun County. CHRSM differs from the others in that we seek to be a support to the entire homeschool family. We accomplish this first and foremost by making prayer a focus of our ministry. Additionally, we provide opportunities for the homeschooling parent to find the support and encouragement they need. Finally, we offer classes for children 0-18 in order to supplement that which the parent is able to accomplish at home, and to provide our children with a sense of community.

For the upcoming 2024-2025 academic year, our community will gather on Tuesdays for Pre-K and Elementary, and Tuesdays/Thursdays for Middle and High School. We meet at the Parish Education Center.

If you are interested in joining CHRSM, you must first apply by clicking 'Join' at the top right of this screen. You will be asked to review all of the informational pages about our ministry, then fill in a family application form. The date of your application submission is the date you are placed on our potential new family list. We will ask you and your registering children to come for an informational tour and answer any questions you may have.

Registration for new St. Francis families and current CHRSM families will begin in mid-March. Our program can only accommodate a limited number of families. Once registration has occurred with all St. Francis families and current CHRSM families, we will review further availability and contact you if we are able to offer your family a spot in our program. At that time, you would need to submit a signed Statement of Faith and your application fee to our Registrar. Please see the FAQ's section for more details.

If you have further questions, please email our CHRSM Directors at

In Christ,
The CHRSM Staff
