Rapid City, SD Chapter – Catholic Schoolhouse

Welcome to Catholic Schoolhouse

Catholic Schoolhouse is designed to help homeschool families enrich their educational experience through a flexible approach to learning inspired by classical elements, presented in a structured environment. Children study the same topics in the grammar program, delving deeper into the material as they grow older. The whole family has a place at Catholic Schoolhouse. Dialectic students have opportunities for discussion, logic development, and speaking, while staying focused on the fine arts and history time periods of the tour guide to facilitate family cohesiveness. Catholic Schoolhouse is more than a day out of the house; it can help bring structure and cohesiveness to your entire homeschool experience and will bless your family.
