COURSE OVERVIEW

Faith & Life 7 : The Life of Grace

COURSE NOTES

RELIGION: Two or four days weekly, 30 to 45 minutes per day.

This is the first half of a wonderful Confirmation program that discusses the Sacraments mostly.  Have the student do the reading one day (two to four pages of relaxed reading) and the workbook work the next.  Have him spend quality time in the written answers, or in quality oral discussion with minimal written response—your choice, Mom.  

This year have the student memorize the Rosary (CCC 971), the Books of the Old Testament in the order found in the Bible, and the Books of the New Testament in the order found in the Bible.

For quarterly reporting, be sure to report this course as “Faith & Life #7,” identifying the Level 7 clearly.  Report the chapter numbers completed for the quarter, i.e. Chapters 1 through 8.  For a work sample, send a copy of the quarter’s best workbook lesson.

Scheduling Suggestions: 2 to 4 times weekly, for 20 to 60 minutes per day.

My advisor helps me to understand what needs to be done and how to make it really fun for the kids. What I really like are the tips she gives me for dealing with the little ones while trying to school the older ones.

This is our first year homeschooling. STAA and [our advisor] have made this a very easy transition. We have had a great year!

I really don't know what I would do without your kindness, and very helpful advice. You are a blessing to our family.

The assessment testing was quick and easy to do, so I didn't expect much valuable feedback. Boy was I wrong!!! It was like my advisor had met my kids and spent hours/days with them.

We have been so very happy with our first year with STAA! Thank you for walking me through it and for all the fantastic resources and materials we are using. There is not one we don't like!

Our family so enjoyed our wonderful relationship with STAA as our [son] worked his way through high school. It was a wonderful and outstanding experience for him and we continue to suggest your program to all those who are looking for an excellent homeschool experience.

Since I am writing, I will also sing more praises of the Greek Studies plan. [My daughter] moaned over the timed-essay and then did very well. So easy to implement with the choose one reflection topic from each subject and then get ready, get set, go! Apparently the school also gave suggestions for the process essay in "Format Writing." Thank you! For a mom of many this is real time saver.

The academy works as a team to accomplish for your family specific ideas or needs for education, but more importantly, what each individual in your family needs, even Mom.

It is a thrill to receive the delightfully arranged weekly guidelines from STAA that keep us on track but allow for flexibility.
