This goes to the national Catholic Schoolhouse program, who provide us with support and director and tutor training. It also gets you access to the members-only Basecamp forum and file directory to help support you in your daily homeschool.
Supply Fee ~ $85.00 per grammar student, or $135.00 per upper level student (includes cost of literature books, art supplies, science experiment supplies, classroom supplies, etc.). Payable to your local director and is used entirely for the chapter. Nearly everything will be provided, saving you the time filling a school supply list.
Tuition ~ $250.00 per grammar student, or $300.00 per upper level student (includes grading from the tutor on papers). Payable to your local director. Goes entirely to your facility and your child’s tutors!
This is for a 3.5 hour hour program for 24 weeks, including science experiments, art class, chorus, and academic subjects.
Nursery ~ $50/quarter, plus about a $20 supply fee. Nursery fees are paid quarterly.
Required Materials for Home Use ~ All families need to purchase the Year 2 Tour Guide ($32), Year 2 Timeline History Cards ($36), and Year 2 Memory Work CDs ($40). Only one set is necessary to use per family. These materials can be purchased through one of the scheduled discounted bulk purchases through your director for just $95.00.
Checks for supply fees and tuition should be made out to “Catholic Schoolhouse Green Bay.”
Other costs. We like to be up front about these “costs” to help each family know what to expect. I think you will find them reasonable!
- Families are asked to provide for each child a backpack, water bottle, and an old t-shirt for art class, when needed. All other classroom supplies are provided from the above listed $75 supply fee (e.g., binder, pencils, scissors, glue, paper, weekly science experiment supplies, weekly art class supplies, and much more!).
- Each quarter, we will have an optional “Moms’ Night Out.” We try to choose places where it is free or affordable (e.g., a coffee shop). This year, we are planning one “Moms’ and Dads’ Night Out” event.
- Each quarter, we will go on an optional field trip. We seek group discounts when possible. Field trips are chosen to reflect what we are learning in Catholic Schoolhouse. During the 2015-2016 year, we studied ancient Greece and Rome and astronomy. We attended a talk by a local expert about ancient civilizations. We also went to the Barlow planetarium and learned about the solar system.
