Springfield, MO Chapter – Catholic Schoolhouse

Homeschool Success through a Classical Approach


Welcome to Catholic Schoolhouse  – Springfield, Missouri Chapter

Enrollment is open for the 2019-2020 school year.

We’re glad you’re here to learn a little more about our chapter! We are gearing up to start Catholic Schoolhouse in the Springfield, MO area for next school year. Registration is still open for the upcoming year in all classes for all ages from Pre-Kindergarten through High School.

  • When: Wednesday’s from 10:00 am to 1:45 pm
  • Where: St. Joseph the Worker parish in Ozark, MO  (1796 State Hwy NN)
  • Dates: August 14, 2019, to May 6, 2020
  • Ages: All ages welcome, through high school graduation

We meet for 24 weeks throughout the academic year with breaks throughout the year and on the 4th Wednesday of each month. Field trips will be planned for some of those 4th Wednesdays.

Our day will begin with morning prayer, chorus and the Pledge of Allegiance. Children of all ages, from eager 3-year-olds through high schoolers, will then move into their academic classes. Babies are welcome to stay with their mama’s and young children will have fun in the nursery where their tutor will have fun, educational activities prepared for them. Students will learn and review memory work, enjoy hands-on art and science, and a snack.  Dialectic and rhetoric age classes will encourage discussion, logic, and public speaking. We will all join back together for closing prayer and announcements.  Then we may decide to share lunch and fellowship, or just head home.

This fall, we will be using the Tour III Tour Guide, History Cards, and Audio CD. Each family is responsible for purchasing a Tour III Tour Guide from the Catholic Schoolhouse Store.  Optional, but very helpful, resources to purchase are the Tour III History Cards and Tour III Music Memory Work CDs or MP3s.  Both are also available at the Catholic Schoolhouse Store. Discounts on these materials are available for registered families.

Your role as a parent participating in Catholic Schoolhouse is to observe your child in class and to offer a helping hand if needed. Throughout the week, parents can choose to use the Tour Guide to help their children master the material at home. The depth and choice of topics covered is under each family’s discretion; however, just a few minutes of review per day will greatly enhance your child’s ability to participate in class. In addition to the Tour Guide, the History Timeline Cards and the Memory CDs are simple tools that can help the children with retention.

Catholic Schoolhouse is loyal to the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. We are looking forward to an exciting and fun-filled year!   If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us!!
