A:

No, OLGH is not a drop-off program. With community being a primary focus, it's very important to us that parents stay on campus. Further, we need all hands to help our co-op run smoothly!

Q:

What method of homeschooling does OLGH use?

A:

OLGH doesn't adhere to any particular homeschooling method. We have families in our group who use structured curricula such as Seton, others who use more classical curricula such as Memoria Press or Kolbe, others who use Catholic Heritage, Catholic Schoolhouse, others a mix, and still others who unschool. The main focus of our group is not the curriculum, but the family, and the community that we can offer each other.
