Catholic Homeschooling - Strengthening The Future of The Catholic Church

Catholic Home Schooling Teaches Children the Core Values of the Catholic Faith
(Mike Jerry)


Catholic home schooling provides children with a strong basis of Catholic values. Catholic homeschooled children are taught the Ten Commandments, a history of the church, the seven sacraments, and about the life of Christ. The homeschooling curriculum allows for flexibility in that the student can have one-on-one discussions with the teacher instead of competing with other students for help. The Catholic schooling advantage is that the children are safe to learn about their religion, without fearing for their safety. The values the children learn will serve to make them productive adults, firmly grounded in their faith.

Although Catholic home schooling is a relatively new trend, it is warmly welcomed by strict Catholic families. A Catholic home schooling will provide children a firm educational foundation anchored in the Catholic faith and doctrines.

With Catholic home schooling, parents are assured the child will learn the basic tenets of the Catholic faith, so they can live a balanced spiritual life; this is because Catholic home schooled students are taught the history of the 2,000-year-old Roman Catholic faith and the culture, 10 Commandments, the life of Jesus, the saints, and the seven sacraments.

The Six Benefits That Catholic Home Schooling Provides Students

A Catholic home schooling program frees children from the problems present in the public school system: an overcrowded educational system, which is known for producing graduates who are bored with their subjects, apathetic and tired of learning from outdated textbooks.

A Catholic home schooling program minimizes the chances for children to be in danger. These dangers such as drug use, bullying and student violence, are a real menace in traditional schools.

Catholic home schooling provides Catholic children of different learning abilities from fast learners to those with special needs, an education that is at a pace consistent with their learning capabilities.

A Catholic home schooling program provides home schooled students a healthy learning environment; one where they can freely express their opinions, exchange views with the teacher, without worrying that their grades will suffer. They will enjoy the learning process because they do not need to worry about punishment.

A Catholic home schooling program by necessity and structure has a limit on the number of students allowed in each class. The ratio of one teacher to one student provides the optimum learning environment for the child to get the needed attention.

A Catholic home schooling curriculum can be easily customized to teach the children non-academic subjects, which students in the traditional classroom setting have limited access to. For this reason, many home schooling parents have created complementary activities like assignments, board work, field trips or on the job training stints, to impart knowledge in innovative ways.

In short, when parents opt to provide their children with a Catholic home schooling, they offer their children the ability to learn as they grow in their Catholic faith. These values and knowledge, when nurtured, will strengthen the Catholic home schooled child; giving the child resolve should adversity, disaster, or misfortune strike.
