5 of 5 So much material! April 5, 2023
Reviewer: Kellie W. from CA, United States  
I have been using this program for 3 years or so, and I love it! I love that I can teach my kids (grades 7, 4, and 2) from the same curriculum. My favorite part is the memory work selections all gathered for me, and the excellent collection of literature and textbooks that I know are Catholic-friendly. It took me a while to really make the curriculum work for us (it has a learning curve and can be a bit of work for the parent), but I knew it would be worth it! Now, 3 years in, we've really hit our stride. Thank you, RC History!
