Sacred heart tutorials: Providing a catholic curriculum and faith-filled environment for students, grades 5 through 12
In spring 2006, several interested women met to discuss the need for a Catholic home-school cooperative tutorial in the north central Maryland area. After that meeting, an advisory board was formed in an effort to start a tutorial service which would meet Catholic home-schooling needs. And so, Sacred Heart Tutorials, Inc., was born. Over the next ten years, Sacred Heart grew to serve families in South Central Pennsylvania as well. The organizers of Sacred Heart Tutorials are home-schooling mothers, most of whom have been schooling at home for over ten years. They come from a wide variety of educational backgrounds and work experiences. Some have taken courses in special education; some have taught at public high schools and colleges. Members of the organizational body have experience in the business world, advertising, military, science, and accounting. Many have started home-schooling activities such as sports teams, support groups, cooperatives, and clubs. All are committed Catholics and active members of their parishes and communities. Together they share a common goal of weaving the Catholic faith into every aspect of their lives, especially at Sacred Heart Tutorials.
