Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but Cabbage with a College Education.

Featured Articles & Links Back to Top
Chevra was formed in September 1998 as an online support community for Jewish homeschoolers of all varieties. It tends to be a very chatty place where they discuss Jewish observance, homeschooling, family life, outside interests, and (the favorite topic) why the laundry never seems to get done. If you are looking for a group that discusses only homeschooling and Judaic resources, you may very well be disappointed in Chevra's free-wheeling discussions of everything under the sun, but there is lots of great information here.
Mathematics in the Preschool
Douglas H. Clements
Anyone who is pushing arithmetic onto preschoolers is wrong. Do not hurry child. No math in preschool! Preschoolers can and should engage in mathematical thinking. All young children possess informal mathematics and can learn more. A combination of an environment that is conducive to mathematical explorations, appropriate observations and interventions, and specific mathematical activities helps preschoolers build premathematical and explicit mathematical knowledge.
Charlotte Mason Group for Fruity Catholics
Fruity Catholics are Catholics who are doing their best to practice the Fruits of the Holy Spirit, especially Charity. This group discusses the Charlotte Mason philosophy of homeschooling from a Catholic perspective.

Regina Coeli Academy
Regina Coeli Academy is an on-line college preparatory program for Roman Catholics. Provides a Liberal Arts program for Catholic home-schooling families, private schools, educational coops, and students enrolled in public schools. The Academy's mission is to support, but not to supplant, the primary educator - the parent - by providing a rigorous college preparatory curriculum which challenges the intellect and nourishes the spirit with the riches of the Catholic tradition. Regina Coeli's own courses are taught at the college preparatory level and provide opportunity for students, young or mature, to excel in specialized study or to complete a classical liberal arts curriculum. Provides live classroom participation, interactive web forums, evaluation of student work and official transcripts.
