COURSE NOTES

An 18 page booklet that "offer[s] ideas for introducing and utilizing Art Masterpieces: A Liturgical Collection, a set of ten full color [8" x 10"] reproductions."  The art pieces were chosen to illustrate some aspect of the liturgical season of that month, starting with September and continuing through June.  The first six pages of the booklet give a general overview and general suggestions for simple art appreciation discussions, to be used with any art print.  Page 7 through 17 give simple devotional notes for each print, one per page.  Each exercise can take 10 to 30 minutes, depending on how many questions you discuss and whether you do any extending activity with the print.

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.

Amber

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.

Pat

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.

Mary Ellen

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.
