Green Bay, WI Chapter – Catholic Schoolhouse

Raising children in this wild country to know, love, and serve the Lord.

A Typical Day at Catholic Schoolhouse

We’re glad you’re here to learn about our chapter! Let me share with you what a typical day looks like at our co-op in Green Bay.

Our day begins together with prayer, the Pledge of Allegiance, and chorus. The children then move into their academics where they learn and review memory work.

We eat lunch as a group. The children and parents enjoy time together, having a break in the middle of the co-op to talk with friends. After lunch, the scholars have a weekly science class, followed by a comprehensive art class.

After art class, scholars continue to learn more content from the Tour Guide.

Students learn about different types of music, a saint, and a featured work of art. Older students learn the basics of playing the recorder. Throughout the day, we focus on a virtue. For example, in December, we focused on the virtue of gratitude. In January, we focused on the virtue of courtesy.  At the end of every day, we gather together in a closing prayer.

We have a “Virtue of the Month” throughout the year.

At home the parents, who are the primary educators of their children, decide how in-depth they will cover the topics with their students. Catholic Schoolhouse is a launching place for piquing interest in a wide variety of topics, while teaching a wide variety of facts across many subject areas.

We are enjoying a fun-filled year, making friends, and learning a lot! We have amazing tutors who teach our classes, using their God-given gift for teaching. They are such a blessing to this program!
