F.A.Q.’s

Answers to Common F.A.Q.’s

How long is a cycle?

  • 30 weeks per PreK-6th Grade cycle

    • 18 Co-op Weeks designed around a co-op meeting.
    • 5 Field Trip Weeks designed around a field trip, which complements either history or science.
    • 7 At-Home Weeks are without a co-op meeting or field trip. These weeks fall around holidays.
  • 30 weeks per Intermediate and Advanced Bundles. All weeks include complete materials for both co-op and home use.

What is the length of a Co-op ?

  • Only 3 hours, so families can meet in the morning or the afternoon and avoid meal-time at the co-op (This cuts down on mess, clean-up, and illness!).

Is there Teacher-Training and Administrative Support?

  • Yes! Contact us at scholarosa@gmail.com for details.

Co-op & Home Use ~ What’s the point?

  • Community support for home and academics  ~ Co-op is a weekly check-up!
  • More than an extracurricular day ~ It’s enrichment and curriculum in one!
  • Structure keeps everyone on task and moving!
  • Co-op stability leads to dependability!

 What are the goals of Co-op?

  • To jump-start the lessons for the week
  • To focus on the introduction of memory work that will be continued at home
  • To engage students in group activities that cannot be completed at home.
  • For the intermediate and advanced levels, the goal is to do group work based upon ideas learned at home.

What is Classically Catholic Memory?
Here is how they describe themselves:  CCM is a four year Catholic, classical memory work program that provides challenging and inspiring memory work material in eight subjects: Religion, which covers Catechism and Scripture; Latin, which includes both prayers and hymns ranging from the Pater Noster to the Tantum Ergo and the Salve Regina; History, which is comprised of chronological and challenging short paragraphs about important historical topics, events, and persons; Science, which covers Life Science: Animal Life, Earth Science/Astronomy, Chemistry/Physics, and Plant Life; Math, which includes skip-counting, formulas, and conversions; Timeline, which consists of 144 events tracing history from Creation through John Paul II; Geography, which fully covers political and geographic features of 6 continents; and Great Words, which covers age-appropriate classic poetry and important historical documents and speeches. The memory work in Classically Catholic Memory is quite challenging, orderly, and chronological. CCM is meant to be fully usable by individual families at home, as well as in a co-op setting. To that end, we provide the following high-quality materials for each year: a Student Text (in full color with classic art work); a Teacher Text (which includes the Student Text, plus teaching notes for all subjects); a set of five laminated maps (in full color with a sheet of sticker labels for all geographic features); and an audio CD set (on which the memory work is presented both by week and by subject, with the history sentences sung to familiar tunes to facilitate memorization). The same set of 144 Timeline Cards is used during each year because the cost of the CCM program is only for the materials, the CCM program is very affordable.
