Homeroom Support is a program for students who need help with time management, outside accountability, and independence.
What does the Homeroom teacher do?
The Homeroom teacher meets with the student one-on-one once a week. During the meeting, the Homeroom teacher and student discuss the current progress in all courses, the upcoming week’s assignments, goals for the week, and plans for how to achieve them. After the weekly meeting, the homeroom teacher submits a prioritized and organized list to the mom and student of what should be done that week, based on the conversation with the student.
The homeroom teacher helps the student:
How does Homeroom Support differ from Teacher Support?
While Teacher Support (Learning Support and Teacher Services) focuses on teaching content and grading assignments for particular courses, Homeroom Support focuses on building organizational habits and time management skills, while also giving accountability for the student in all of their courses. The Homeroom teacher does not grade assignments, but helps the student submit assignments and meet deadlines.
Although they do not grade work, the homeroom teacher will need access to all submitted assignments, so this service works best for students using a combination of Teacher Services or Learning Support for all/most core areas.
(Note: For accountability purposes, students will still need to upload some work for courses that are not taken with TS or LS. Work will not be graded by the Homeroom teacher.)
Who is suited for Homeroom Support?
The situations where students will benefit most from this program are situations where either:
This latter could be due to the parents either having to work outside of the house or having illnesses or disabilities in the family that preclude them from working closely with the student. In all cases, the parent would still need to keep up to date in checking their email and communication from the Homeroom teacher.
What does Homeroom Support cost?
The cost is $400* per year for the following services:
*If the student is taking at least 3 Learning Support classes there is a $40 discount.

“We homeschool our children for a number of reasons, but among the most important is giving our children a solid, challenging curriculum where they can learn to think for themselves drawing on extensive knowledge base. Our children thrive in their environment of learning and MODG provides the tools necessary for this learning. We are able to adjust each subject with the help of our consultant to fit each of our children based on their level of knowledge, maturity, and learning style. Our children receive the best possible education because each of them pursues their academics building up their strong points and strengthening their weaknesses. MODG provides the support and resources necessary to achieve this. Of course, raising our children for the Kingdom is paramount in our mind. MODG helps keep our days centered on Christ by weaving our Catholic faith into our everyday learning. The curriculum is full of the good, true, and beautiful and all of this brings us back to our Father who loves us. Our children are living their faith; seeing firsthand how it is a part of everything they do.”
