Home Study - Religious Education
Full year homestudy is an option for those students who are not able to commit to attending classes on a weekly basis. Many families find it is a great opportunity to share their faith, however, it takes a great time commitment. Home study is coordinated by the Individual Education Coordinator. If you have questions or concerns about Faith Formation Home study, please use contact Faith Formation Office.
Home study for Grades 1-5: A book and study guide are given to parents of students. Instructions are given to cover certain chapters by January and May when a mid-term or final test is taken by the student. The test is comprised of questions from the study guide. Specific prayers are expected to be known by appropriate grade levels. The prayers will asked to be recited after the tests. A final grade will be determined from the grades of the mid-term and final tests.
Home study for Grades 6 through 8 is based on a trimester. A packet is given to the parent to read and discuss with a student providing short answers to the discussion questions in the packet and then return on specific dates on the instruction sheet. No tests are required.
