Hear from Our Families:

“I was very drawn to MODG's classical approach, and its focus on the tools of learning. Students learn the facts in each subject area, and then the curriculum goes further to encourage thought, admiration and wonder, and to teach writing, conversation, and drawing. The MODG curriculum does the same in the spiritual area. We read the very best catechism, and the Holy Bible, and then we take it a step further, we reflect on the message, we read the example of the saints, we put our own thoughts on paper. In all areas, we don't just take in facts--which may be forgotten--but we spring from those facts to acquire the tools and skills that will make our students lifelong learners and admirers of God's creation. Yet, MODG does not neglect the acquisition of fact either. I've just started to notice that in the early years, we run over the same material year after year, while increasing the detail and the amount of information. All this is accomplished with a curriculum that is flexible and fits nicely into my family life!”
