Hear from Our Families:

“Over time, I have come to see the wisdom of the program, and how each piece, each year, builds onto something from the previous year and, in turn, provides the building blocks for the future. It is the most well thought out and integrated program I have seen, both among the homeschooling programs that I considered and the public and private schools that are an option for us....I have come to believe very firmly over the years that the MODG program, especially as implemented using the family consultants and the various other programs that are available, is easily the match of any other educational system, home-school or not, public or private. My husband and I each have degrees from both Harvard and the University of Chicago, and we value education very highly. We are fortunate, now, to live in an area with nationally ranked public and private schools within a short drive. We have chosen to continue to homeschool our children using MODG. I have no doubt that our children will be much better prepared for the rigors of college than my husband and I were, and I also have no doubt that they will be well prepared for whatever college they choose to attend, including anything in the Ivy League, should that be in their futures.”
