Greensburg, PA CSH

A Classical Homeschool Group

What is CSH?

Welcome to Catholic Schoolhouse  – Greensburg

We’re glad you’re here to learn a little more about our chapter!

Day/Time: We currently meet on Monday mornings from 8:45 AM- 12:30PM. For the 2020-2021 school year we will most likely be meeting on a wednesday or thursday as works best for the majority of the members. 

Order of the Day: Our day will begin with morning prayer, chorus and the Pledge of Allegiance. Children will then move into their age appropriate academics class where they will learn and review memory work, enjoy hands on art and science, and a snack.  After classes we will all join back together for closing prayer and announcement.  We can then share lunch and fellowship before heading home.

*If you have a child in grades 4-6 we may be offering an add-on IEW (Institute for Excellence in Writing) class after lunch.

Books/Supplies/Fees: Tour Guide, Supply fee and Tuition fee apply to all students at CSH. For full details please visit our Annual Fees Page here.

Each family is responsible for purchasing one Tour Guide- “Tour 1” for 2020-2021 school year- from the Catholic Schoolhouse Store or through your local chapter at a bulk order discount. The tour guide is your resource for all the memory work that is covered each week. This book allows you to dive deeper into the topics discussed each week in whatever style suits your family best!

  • Nursery- Ages 0-2yrs If there is a need we will provide a nursery at cost to parents. Price will be per child.
