The Special Services Program is a supplement to our Teacher Review Program designed to help families who have children with learning challenges. Enrolling your child in the Special Service Program provides:
Mother of Divine Grace School's consultants are homeschooling mothers who have broad experience working with children with many different special needs. They have received extensive training in our methodology and the adaption of our curriculum and goals for the purpose of helping the struggling student achieve his goals. Special service consultants are also available to assist families as well as consultants when designing a curriculum. We have broad experience working with many learning challenges, behavioral issues, and emotional issues.
Special Services: Grades Pre-K–5: No Charge / Grades 6–12: $35
Signing up in the Basic Level will provide additional added resources and job aids for your student. It also provides access to additional levels of support:
Special Services Planning Consultation (available April through August): $150
Mom meets with the consultant and the Special Service consultant in a consultation in order to develop a complete educational plan for the student. The Special Service consultant will provide a detailed report for the student for the year.
Special Services Additional Consultation: $100
This plan is perfect for the mom who does not need an entirely specialized educational plan for her child but instead needs to modify the current plan. The Special Service consultant will meet with the family consultant to look over the existing educational plan, make recommendations for modifications, as well as provide additional resources. These will be discussed with the parents in a consultation dedicated to the SS student. There is no written report at this level.
For more information on the additional levels of service, please contact your consultant. She can help determine the best course of action for your child.
High School graduation is possible for our students with learning challenges. To graduate from MODG, the student must complete high school requirements for graduation. Your consultant can help you with this. If your child is unable to complete high school requirements, he can earn a Certificate of Completion. There is also the California High School Proficiency Exam (www.chspe.net). Talk to your consultant for more information.

“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!”
