We are SO grateful the many companies who now provide Catholic homeschool curriculum. There are so many shortcuts and improvements today!
When we started homeschooling we looked for the resources that taught the Baltimore Catechism and used the Douay-Rheims Bible. They're so easy to trust and are the kind of Roman Catholic books that teach the Faith as it has lasted for 2000 years.
So many times it is nice to have a real opinion of the different curriculum available. We've used curriculum from each of these providers and think that you'll find some real treasures amongst these Catholic homeschool companies.
Our Catholic homeschool curriculum providers use the Baltimore Catechism to teach the Catholic beliefs and Catholic prayers! St. Anne's Helper Audio Catechism and Catechism Copybooks make it fun and easy!
There are more and more resources for Catholic homeschooling. It is a God-send to have help teaching the basic Catholic beliefs. Many of these resources were not available 30 years ago, so we extend our gratitude to the good souls who have developed these Catholic homeschool programs so that we have at hand a "homeschool curriculum in a box" or the ability to "pick and choose" the Catholic books we see fit for our families. Several are accredited homeschool programs.
