We mean it when we say that one of our goals is to create a unity and oneness within our community and among Unitas families. One of the ways we want to do that is by connecting with homeschool families. As a former homeschooling parent myself, I offer my support and congratulations on your decision to homeschool. I will always treasure that time spent with my children. At the same time, we hope to have the opportunity to get to know your family. As a homeschool family in our school you will be included in all school-wide fellowship opportunities. We consider you a part of our family, not just someone taking a class or two with us!
Please Note: We will post Mon-Thur class openings when registration closes . Mon-Thur class availability for homeschool students will depend on full time student enrollment.
All homeschool students who want to enroll in one or more classes must submit an application. All homeschool class fees are due before the first class.
HOMESCHOOL COURSES WILL BEGIN on AUG 22nd (except for the Eclipse Workshop and Chalk Art Workshop)
Course Descriptions: Latina Christiana I An introduction to Latin for younger students wishing to begin a study of basic Latin. Students will learn three noun and two adjective declensions, two verb conjugations, over 250 Latin vocabulary words, and basic songs and prayers.
Writing (IEW Student Writing Intensive B) A writing course for students new to IEW that lays a solid foundation of writing skills. Over the course of this class, students will learn how to effectively use a wide range of structural models and stylistic techniques in their compositions, as they write on a variety of enjoyable fiction and non-fiction topics.
Classical Studies: D'Aulaires' Greek Myths Because they are everywhere in Western art and literature, Greek myths are the essential background for a classical education. You can hardly read Shakespeare without them! Greek myths are timeless and universal stories that serve as archetypes for the human character and the search for the divine. This course also points out the many references to Greek mythology in the modern world. A great course for those just beginning their Classical Studies.
Classical Studies: Famous Men of Rome This program is ideal for beginners of all ages who are fascinated by the action and drama of Rome. Students will experience 30 stories covering all of ancient Rome’s history, from its founding to its demise. Your child will witness the rise and fall of a great civilization through the lives of larger-than-life figures such as Horatius, Camillus, Caesar, and Cicero. Rome is the model civilization, the mastery of which provides a foundation for all other history study.
Eclipse Workshop This 2-hour workshop will include an in-depth study of an eclipse, a craft, snacks, and more! Students will not only know about the eclipse, but will be able to discuss it. Students are welcome to join us for a viewing party on August 21st. (Details will be provided at registration)
Chalk Art Competition Design Workshop Student will learn the history of Sidewalk Chalk Art and together design a community-wide competition that will take place during Bardstown's Arts, Crafts, and Antiques Festival. Students will hear guest speakers from the community and have the opportunity to collaborate and communicate with our community. This is a great opportunity for students who love working with a team and who are (or want to be) community-minded.
