Home Study

Home Study Program

Religious Education offers the opportunity to teach your child at home in a “Faith Alive in the Home” Program, Home Study, when work or family obligations make our program times impossible for your family.  To participate in the Home Study Program one parent must be a practicing Catholic, in good standing, who has been a registered member of either Church for at least one year, attends Mass regularly and is approved by the Pastor.  Students in 2nd, 7th and 8th grades may not enroll in the Home Study.

 

This program provides materials and resources for faith formation in the home.  Please be advised that Home Study families will have a kick off meeting in the Fall, take chapter and four unit tests spread evenly throughout the year, attend extra parish activities and take a final oral interview in late Spring.
