FAMILY HOME STUDY FOR GRADES 1-7 St. Thomas a Becket offers two ways for your child to complete his/her faith formation studies. Our traditional method is classroom based instruction. The other method is the Family Home Study Program. You, the parent or guardian, are the teacher. Your child will complete one workbook chapter a week under your guidance. A syllabus and calendar are provided to keep you on track and focused during the year. This is a flexible option because you choose the day of the week and time that you will do your faith formation studies with your child. It is also a wonderful way for the family to learn together and grow more in faith.
There are two requirements for families involved in Family Home Study:
Students must complete and submit a finished workbook;
ABOUT THE HOME STUDY MEETINGS You MUST attend a minimum of four meetings a year. The first Orientation meeting counts as a required meeting. We provide these meetings in order to provide children with some of the community benefits of classroom based instruction. We also want to support parents as catechists, and to provide families with the opportunity to celebrate their faith together. Learn more about the required meetings.
