GOD GAVE YOU THE POWER TO LEARN ANYTHING
Each class is segmented into short, easy-to-understand lessons tailored for each grade level. Each lesson comes with a video, a complete lesson plan, a study guide and an assessment. Objectives and expected learning outcomes are also included. Teachers are invited to use these lessons as a supplement to their existing curriculum, or as a centerpiece. All lessons are built using magisterial content including the New Jerusalem Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church (2nd ed), and other orthodox Catholic sources.
Catholic Online School takes learning out of the classroom and puts the control right into the hands of the student. It is a self-paced learning system that gently guides any student through the learning process. With the lack of quality education that many countries are suffering from at the moment, Catholic Online School truly could not have come about at a better time.
