Catholic Heritage Curriculum Reviews

It is Catholic Heritage Curricula’s belief that, when solid academics are offered in a gentle, flexible manner, the vast majority of children will blossom spiritually, emotionally, and academically. CHC’s educational approach lays a joyful foundation, resulting in children who achieve at and above grade level, do not ‘burn out,’ and instead ‘learn how to learn’. While CHC offers complete programs with lesson plans at each grade level, ours is not a ‘pre-packaged’ curriculum. Rather, CHC’s plans and guides are constructed to allow maximum choice and flexibility to fit your student, while at the same time providing a complete education. Levels K-12

  1. Catholic Heritage Curriculum Review by Kelly
    Pros: lesson plans are laid out for the day, but provide wiggle room
    Cons: lots of books are consumable

    Grades Used: 1, 3

    I was a teacher in public school before deciding to homeschool my own children. I didn’t want to have the hassle of planning out units of study in our first year of homeschooling, so we chose to use everything in the grade level lesson plans from CHC. I like how the lesson plans also provide some of the curriculum — ex. math games, social studies, reading comprehension.

    The four day week works well when we need to focus more on one topic on the fifth day, or if we just want a break! My 1st grader has a 32 week lesson plan and my 3rd grader has a 36 week, so I started my 1st grader later, so they would end at the same time (he didn’t know he started late, because his first days of school were filled with other activities).

    Kindergarten/ 1st grade phonics is great and so are the stories my 3rd grader is reading. CHC also ties in reading vocabulary to the handwriting and spelling books, at the same time the child is encountering those words or sounds in the books they are reading.

    The only text book in the curriculum lesson plans that I am frustrated with is the math book. The curriculum includes Modern Curriculum Press Mathematics and my daughter doesn’t care for it. There is alot of repetition and I am aware of math programs that involve much more critical thinking and less rote practice. The great thing about CHC is that we don’t have to use that math book just because it is suggested in the lesson plans.

  2. Catholic Heritage Curriculum Review by Nicole Hale
    Pros: gentle, easy to use, infused with Catholic teachings
    Cons: can be pricy if purchasing complete sets

    Grades Used: Pre K-12

    We have been using Catholic Heritage Curriculum (CHC)since I started homeschooling over 3 years ago. Having a background in education, I could see that these materials are very well written and totally infused with the Catholic teachings. CHC was a wonderful alternative, for us, to sending the kids to Catholic schools. All the materials are gentle, sweetly written. My boys just loved everything about it – no tears, fussing or boredom. The lesson plans are written based on a 4-day a week schedule – allowing for a “day off” and still completing objectives in the usual 36 week time period. All of the plans are flexible – meaning you can use them straight out of the box, or change them as your family needs. If you don’t need the complete set, you can also purchase materials as needed – this is what we did this year (as my kids are in different levels). The on-line support is fantastic, as well as the phone operators. Everyone is totally dedicated and willing to help the homeschooling mother no matter what the problem. I cannot say enough good things about CHC!!!
