What is homeschooling?

Home education, as defined by Florida law, is “sequentially progressive instruction of a student directed by his or her parent or guardian in order to satisfy the requirements of Statute 1003.21 and 1002.41.” The law is broad, giving parents quite a bit of freedom to direct their child’s education. Children of all ages are home-educated across the state, and many are entering college straight from their courses of study at home.

What is Catholic home schooling?

Catholic homeschooling is going to look a little different in each home. However, many parents are homeschooling for more than just filling their children’s head with knowledge using a Catholic curriculum. Seeking to live out the liturgical year, learning our faith alongside our children, and teaching from a Catholic worldview is what Catholic home schooling is all about. Here in Archangels we encourage you to find God’s will for your home school as we all walk along together growing in the love of Christ and his Church.

Prayer For Christian Families

“Under Thy paternal gaze, O Lord, and with confidence in Thy Providence and in the loving patronage of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, the family will become a sanctuary of virtue and a school of wisdom.”

Excerpt from Pope Pius XII’s Prayer for Christian Families


"The entire educational process must be carried out with love, which is perceptible in every disciplinary measure and which does not instill any fear. And the most effective educational method is not the word of instruction but the living example without which all words remain useless."

Edith Stein
