What a great gift to be Catholic! What a blessing to know Him, Who is the foundation of all Truth, the great Cause of all that exists! And what a great privilege and joy to be able to pass these truths on to our children as we encounter Him in every subject that we teach. Yet, His creative power and providence is perhaps evident most clearly in the subject of science.
Science, very simply, studies God's creative handiwork.
It can be quite a shock, therefore, to pick up a library book on a scientific topic and see how deeply it is imbued with secular philosophy. Secular texts, too, omit reference to or acknowledgment of God's eternal designs, the intricate providence for His creation. In addition, non-Catholic texts often distort the Church's contributions to scientific study. Worse, it is not uncommon for non-Catholic texts to use science topics to subtly or not so subtly deride Church teachings.
It was these very difficulties in our own homeschooling that spurred us to "open the doors" of CHC so that Catholic families might have access to quality materials that lay a strong academic yet Catholic educational foundation for our children.
