“We are so grateful for the existence of this classical distance program of education. The classical methodology for academic and spiritual topics has deepened our appreciation for seeking truth, goodness and beauty. Parents and students alike have learned together, shared good books together, and discussed important issues based on sound classical teaching. The one newer aspect of the school that has especially meant so much to us has been the Learning Support conference calls. This class has fostered such wonderful dialogue between the students and the teacher and has helped me as the home schooling teacher to hear well developed discussion and dialogue. As parents, we have such confidence in knowing each of our sons will face a future armed with a well formed conscience and that is largely due to the curriculum provided by Mother of Divine Grace School.”
