Middle School Math Online for Catholic Homeschoolers

We would like to introduce you to our newest instructor, Mrs. Nardozzi. We rarely bring on a new teacher or add a new course this close to the new school year. We only do it when we find an exceptional teacher who can also teach a subject that is seriously needed.

First, allow me to introduce you to Mrs. Nardozzi:



Isn't she wonderful! In fact, this video was shot by one of her students. He can't say enough nice things about her.

While we have a number of great middle school math courses available as recorded, independent-learning classes, we did not have one scheduled for the 2015/2016 school year. So, we've scheduled the following course for you. (Note, our courses are broken into 2 parts -- fall and spring semesters.) Our recorded middle school math courses use Saxon Math books. This live course will be using the Glencoe textbook, which is an excellent text for this age group.
