Mother of Divine Grace School's directors, consultants, teachers, educational advisors, and office staff, are committed to helping you in your homeschooling and academic needs.
Mother of Divine Grace School's Directors are all qualified home schooling mothers who have worked as consultants and teachers in their field for over ten years. They are familiar with the classical methodology, all of the materials that we recommend, and every aspect of our programs. Our Directors work to ensure that the children enrolled in Mother of Divine Grace School receive the best education possible and that our families receive the proper direction and support from our consultants, teachers, and staff.
Mother of Divine Grace School's Consultants are successful home educators who are available to provide counseling, support, and curriculum guidance to our enrolled families, particularly with regard to designing and implementing the classical curriculum. Their individual home schooling experience has developed their expertise and teaching style. Our consultants are adept at managing and home schooling large families, utilizing resources already available to a family, and adjusting the curriculum and lesson plan developments of others to the family's fullest advantage. Our Special Services Consultants offer additional assistance in educating and raising children with special needs, providing guidance and support when it comes to balancing both raising a large and active family and caring for a child with special needs. Mother of Divine Grace School makes every effort to ensure that the consultant who works with each family is suited to that family's needs and goals.
Mother of Divine Grace School's Teachers have been trained in the methodology of classical liberal education. Our teachers were either homeschooled themselves or have homeschooled their own children. In addition some of our teachers have teaching degrees and experience either teaching in the classroom or personally tutoring children in various academic courses. However, the most important attributes of our teachers are their familiarity with the material, their understanding of the methodology, and their ability to work with students guiding them through the academic stages.
Mother of Divine Grace School's Educational Advisors offer guidance and direction to our consultants, teachers, and staff in maintaining the classical nature of the program. They have been instrumental in the development of Mother of Divine Grace School's curriculum over the years and in preserving its classical nature. They have provided our directors with suggestions, direction, and guidance in many subjects drawing on their years of experience in their various fields.
Mother of Divine Grace School's Office Staff handle our school records, requests for information about our methodology, materials, programs and enrollment.
“MODG, which uses the classical approach to education, has been a real eye opener for my daughter and for me. First of all, Anna has thrived on the fact that we can move at a pace that is equal to her learning ability. Her state standardized tests continue to be in the above average range for her age level. When we were at the Catholic School, her test scores were high as well. However, it was because I prepared her at home for them. We rarely finished a text book at the Catholic School, so course work was never technically complete. Every year she was there, I finished course work on my own with her as well as extra learning activities over the summer. We do so much during the year and it’s so thorough with MODG, there is no need to do this over the summer as we did before. I used to be a teacher’s aide in Math and Science for the Junior High level at the same Catholic School so I am very familiar with their caliber of work. MODG far surpasses it. Anna has been able to move ahead in subjects that interest her or in which she excels. She has particularly enjoyed not only the textbooks for history, but the literature based learning as well. Her ability to do Latin has continually amazed us and we have found that it has advanced her knowledge in English grammar. We love the way course work in one subject often ties in with learning in another subject. Our greatest joy in homeschooling Anna through MODG, however, has been in religion. Whereas her religion books in Catholic school seemed dead, the MODG curriculum has given her the real “meat and potatoes” of her faith. She not only has developed a real love for her faith, but she is able to understand it and defend it as well. Last year she told me that because of what she has learned she feels that she finally “knows God.” What more could I ask.”
