Welcome to the Puyallup Chapter of Catholic Schoolhouse!
Catholic Schoolhouse is designed to help homeschool families enrich their educational experience through a flexible approach to learning inspired by classical elements, presented in a structured environment. The whole family has a place at Catholic Schoolhouse!
Families can use our program to anchor their entire week or as an enrichment day. Outside of class, families have the freedom to use curriculum that best meets the needs of each individual child. If families elect to follow the classical model, we provide a resource guide and walk them through the elements available, giving parents complete control of what they would like to incorporate into their homeschool.
Pre-school and kindergarten students (ages 3-5) participate in our Pre-Grammar class which includes all of the elements of our Grammar program.
Children kindergarten through sixth grades are in the Grammar program and study the same topics, delving deeper into the material as they grow older. Grammar students are separated into different classrooms based on age.
Dialectic (seventh-ninth) students have opportunities for discussion, logic development, composition and speaking, while staying focused on the fine arts and history time periods of the tour guide.
The Rhetoric (tenth – twelfth) program keeps your high school students within the family academic circle for a unified homeschool. Rhetoric scholars study the exact same history timeline and Latin as the rest of the family but delve deeper into the material than both the grammar and dialectic levels. Each week, rhetoric students learn and practice the art of communicating with truth, clarity, and charity. Rhetoric scholars read and discuss literature, church documents, and historical events, learn to craft essays using The Lost Tools of Writing, and present several speeches a year. Fine arts classes include art appreciation, art history, and advanced art skills lessons. Half credit rigor courses in American government (Tour 1), logic (Tour 2), and economics (Tour 3), round out the program and include tests and writing a research paper.
We also offer a nursery for younger children as needed.
