Catholic Heritage Curricula (CHC) was founded in 1993 with one simple goal: to aid and support Catholic families in educating their children for eternity.
Years ago, the two families from which CHC sprang lived in isolated, rural communities in Oregon and California. Without access to parochial schools, but desiring a Catholic education for their children, they turned to homeschooling. Like you, they sought materials that would provide sound academics while also tenderly nurturing in little souls a love for their Heavenly Father.
Gathering from the wisdom and experience of homeschoolers living in all parts of the world, CHC developed a gentle, flexible approach to academics that avoids 'burnout,' and instead lays a joyful foundation, resulting in children who achieve at and above grade level. CHC’s lesson plans and materials are constructed to allow maximum choice and flexibility to fit your student, while at the same time providing a complete education. CHC's educational program is absolutely faithful to the Magisterium, low in cost, solidly academic, but easily taught at home. There are no tuition or enrollment fees, simply the cost of the materials.
As CHC celebrates 30 years of service to homeschooling families, we are blessed to introduce RoseMary C. Johnson, CHC's new President and CEO. RoseMary is the daughter of one of the original founders and a homeschool graduate, educated with CHC materials from pre-school through high school. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of Dallas with a Bachelor’s degree in English and a concentration in Greek. In 2021 she completed a Ph.D. in Literature from the same university. RoseMary is the author of CHC's The Secret Code of Poetry and Behold and See 6 Science and is the senior editor of many of CHC's publications, including Ever Ancient Ever New Art and The Treasure Trove of Literature.
I began homeschooling my third grader and kindergartner last year right in the midst of expecting baby number four. All my friends and family kept asking me how I was surviving with all the transitions. I kept thinking I must have been doing something wrong because everything seemed to fall into place so easily during our school hours—even with a super-rowdy 3 year-old and a newborn!
As I began planning for my second year, I started to order books from other programs because I was wondering what I was missing—there is so much out there! I realized about two weeks into school this September what a huge mistake I had made. Everything in school seemed so chaotic. CHC is so organized, so Catholic, and so mom and housework-still-needs-to-get-done friendly that I've been gradually restocking my curriculum with CHC materials to get back on track in my school and home. Now the three year old is enjoying many of the preschool materials, my six-year-old is reading at a third grade level and my fourth grader knows how to organize himself and get work down without me having to sit with him for hours on end. ... Thank you, thank you, thank you. — Maureen, MO
