DesMoines, IA Chapter – Catholic Schoolhouse

Welcome to the Des Moines Chapter of Catholic Schoolhouse!

Registration is now open for the 2017-2018 School Year.

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!

We offer a Pre-School program for children  3-6 years of age. (Parents of toddlers and infants have the option of utilizing a parent led childcare co-op.)
Children from kindergarten through sixth grades study the same topics in the grammar program, delving deeper into the material as they grow older.
Dialectic (seventh-ninth) and Rhetoric (tenth-twelfth) stage 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.

  • Are you looking for a classical Catholic program?
  • Do you desire a consistent, Catholic peer group for your children, the kind that builds lasting relationships and encouragement?
  • Do you feel burned out and are looking for ways to bring joy back to your homeschool?
  • Do you feel like you are juggling too many things and missing family unity?
  • Would you like to meet other parents with like-minded goals to share your journey?

Catholic Schoolhouse is more than a day out of the house; it can help bring structure and cohesiveness

to your entire homeschool experience and will bless you and your family.
