About

This site is a record of the four years of learning at home for my high school children. It is named for a very special place and is dedicated to St. Hugh of Grenoble.

St. Hugh is an appropriate patron because, as many homeschooling parents are tempted to do, he desperately sought to disengage from the world by seeking comfort in isolation. Fortunately for posterity, he left that comfort, and launched a selfless fight to improve his church and country.

The links and resources found on each page of this site were selected to aid the education of my high school children who had transferred to home learning from the public schools. I found that the traditional home schooling curricula available at the time assumed that the student was not only comfortable with at-home study, but also with rote memorization and the busy work offered by consumable workbooks. I felt that with the little time I had left to complete their overall education, I needed to offer them a story-telling method for learning history, the most engaging texts for literature, and higly relevant enrichment activities so that they can connect their learning to the real world.

For Spanish and French, we used Rosetta Stone and supplemented with the links provided here. Practice in conversation was provided by a tutor.

Again, the links and resources are available to all on-line, but I have attempted to organized them into an easily accessible collection for both student and teacher.

Not represented on these pages are the guided discussions, modifications, and original creations which resulted from our engagment with these resources. As with any good curriculum, its real-world application is different for each student.
