Mother of Divine Grace School was founded in 1995 to provide parents with the information, resources, and support necessary to educate their children according to the classical tradition. Laura Berquist's book, Designing Your Own Classical Curriculum, had aroused the interest of thousands and she responded to their requests by developing a distance education program and offering home schooling consulting services. As with her book, the emphasis of the study program and the consulting services is to help parents to teach their children the tools of learning. Located in Ojai, CA, Mother of Divine Grace School serves over 4,000 students.
Mother of Divine Grace School offers a Catholic, classical approach to home schooling. It is a program that has been developed by "trial and error". We understand the challenges that home-schoolers face and thus we offer different levels of service. We want to meet the needs of each individual family, and we realize that these needs will vary from family to family. Our consultants, teachers, lesson plans, materials, standardized testing, and assessments can provide families with clear educational goals, the appropriate level of support, as well as the needed structure and flexibility. These will lead to academic success.

But we also encourage you to read the Letter from our Director, Laura Berquist, our Statement of Purpose and Learning Goals.

Hear from Our Families:
“Mother of Divine Grace School [has] an excellent curriculum that balances rigor with respect for the development of the child. We have benefited greatly from the consultants and teachers, who have been very helpful and encouraging. They have well-planned and organized lessons and syllabi, which makes for a successful school year. In particular, we are very pleased with the curriculum. It always surprises us how much information our children retain. This has translated into successful standardized test scores. As a result, four different private colleges have accepted our daughter’s applications and awarded her impressive scholarships as well, while our son has been accepted into the Georgia Tech Regional Engineering Program, and expects to be awarded the HOPE scholarship. Most importantly, our children have been given the tools to learn independently, something they will be able to carry with them throughout life.”Maria W
