Orthodox Homeschooling Resources
With us everything should be secondary compared to our concern with children,
and their upbringing in the instruction and teaching of the Lord.
– St. John Chrysostom

Department of Homeschooling
Archpriest Noah Bushelli, Director
The primary goal of the Department of Homeschooling is to promote, support and unite homeschooling throughout the Archdiocese.
Secondarily, we seek to remind all parents that their children’s education is their responsibility, whether or not they “outsource” this task.
We are looking for volunteers to help create community and curriculum toward this end.
Please pray for us and our work. If you’d like to help our support financially, please email Fr. Noah. May God—through the prayers of Saints Emmelia, Nonna, and Anthusa, the Mothers of the Three Hierarchs—bless our efforts!
