Educating for Eternity!

Academically Excellent

The CHC Approach

Unlike many homeschool providers, CHC does not confuse “arduous” with “academic,” as if the difficulty of completing a program were the measure of how much a child is learning. In most cases, just the opposite is true.

Encouraging children's desire to learn

An exhausted child is not going to be as receptive to learning as a child who is engaged in his subjects and not overwhelmed. Rather than crushing a child’s natural desire to learn, CHC’s educational approach lays a joyful foundation, resulting in children who achieve at and above grade level, do not “burn out,” and instead “learn how to learn.”

Sound academics without burnout

CHC upholds high academic standards; our up-to-date, Catholic materials are based on accepted sequences used in schools across the nation prior to the “dumbing down” of texts in the last 70 years. CHC materials are centrally balanced between the “too rigorous approach” and the “too lax approach,” with materials and lesson plans that offer sound academics spiced with plenty of fun and enrichment to keep burn-out at bay. It is CHC’s belief that when solid academics are offered in a gentle, flexible manner, the vast majority of children will blossom spiritually, emotionally, and academically.

Academic Success Stories

The many stories that CHC families have shared of their children’s academic success speak for themselves.

My daughter graduated from homeschool this May. She excelled in her dual-credit college classes with straight A’s for her entire Senior year and even made the Dean’s List!! I figured CHC should celebrate too: It’s a CHC victory too!

My oldest daughter graduated this past June. She got accepted into Newman University in Wichita, KS with a substantial scholarship. Thank you, CHC, for the beautiful journey.
Today I got the results back from a CAT 5 test I gave to my 3rd grader. She scored in the 93 percentile for social studies (grade level 8). Just want to thank you, your gentle approach makes my child “want to learn.”
My family has been a CHC family from the very beginning. My oldest daughter has gone on to receive multiple scholarships, enabling her to pay for her college education at a fabulous, private Catholic university.
Teachers are blown away by what he is doing and the type of projects that he has completed.
My background is as an English and reading teacher, and I find your materials to be top-notch… second to none.
In my junior year, I decided to take some classes at the local junior college. I’ll never forget the look on my professor’s face when he learned I was only a junior in high school and held the top grade in the class!
I am a former teacher who has appreciated your "gentle approach" over the years. Our family has chosen to send our children to public high school as they have reached the proper age. They have been extremely well prepared!
Our home visitor from the school board was beyond impressed with everything we’ve done. My 8-year-old daughter is above grade level in everything.
