“MODG, which uses the classical approach to education, has been a real eye opener for my daughter and for me. First of all, Anna has thrived on the fact that we can move at a pace that is equal to her learning ability. Her state standardized tests continue to be in the above average range for her age level. When we were at the Catholic School, her test scores were high as well. However, it was because I prepared her at home for them. We rarely finished a text book at the Catholic School, so course work was never technically complete. Every year she was there, I finished course work on my own with her as well as extra learning activities over the summer. We do so much during the year and it’s so thorough with MODG, there is no need to do this over the summer as we did before. I used to be a teacher’s aide in Math and Science for the Junior High level at the same Catholic School so I am very familiar with their caliber of work. MODG far surpasses it. Anna has been able to move ahead in subjects that interest her or in which she excels. She has particularly enjoyed not only the textbooks for history, but the literature based learning as well. Her ability to do Latin has continually amazed us and we have found that it has advanced her knowledge in English grammar. We love the way course work in one subject often ties in with learning in another subject. Our greatest joy in homeschooling Anna through MODG, however, has been in religion. Whereas her religion books in Catholic school seemed dead, the MODG curriculum has given her the real “meat and potatoes” of her faith. She not only has developed a real love for her faith, but she is able to understand it and defend it as well. Last year she told me that because of what she has learned she feels that she finally “knows God.” What more could I ask.”
