Seat of Wisdom Homeschool Co-op, Inc.

Let them be born unto wonder...

Above, the newly renovated sanctuary at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church, in White Sulpher, Ky. (off Ironworks Pike, near Georgetown). We will have classes in parish hall behind the church and participate in mass in the extraordinary form (Latin) at noon each week. 

Founded in 2016, Seat of Wisdom Homeschool Cooperative, Inc. is a community of Catholic homeschooling families who meet weekly for enrichment activities that help students recognize and appreciate all that is true, good and beautiful in God's creation. We offer affordable, flat fees for families, regardless of the number of children enrolled. We also offer a nursery and early preschool classes for younger siblings. Our goal is to supplement each family's home school, rather than replace it or tie you down to a particular publisher or curriculum. We do all we can to keep classes manageable and affordable, with very few classes requiring a textbook. Further, we require minimal homework outside of class time.

History

Taught by Carlye Thacker, Ph.D., our history courses offers a factual and Catholic representation of history, from ancient civilizations to medieval and modern times. Grades 1-3 will study Medieval History, using the Tan Story of Civilization curriculum. Grades 4-8 will learn about US history through a Kentucky and Catholic perspective, with a few field trips included, as well. 

Virtues in Practice

Twice a month all students from Grades PK/K - 8 will  participate in the Virtues Program developed by the Dominican Sisters of Saint Cecilia (Nashville, TN). The materials for this program are free and available on the Dominican website

Media, Truth & Debate

Students in Grades 4-8 will learn the basics about mass media communications, including newspapers and broadcast media. They'll learn to dissect stories, identify sources, and sift through messages in search of what is true. Then, we'll learn to use our understanding of facts and issues in an introductory debate class.
