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.

Hear from Our Families:

“We believe Modg has guided us well in achieving [our son's] success. The college was pleased, as well as impressed, with our son's home study courses through Modg and having Modg consulting services and keeping our records has been extremely beneficial in our home schooling pursuits. It is obvious in our situation that homeschooling with Modg allowed our son (and other children), to achieve a high standard of education with the religious formation we desire as part of our children's education. The program helps promote a love of the true and good, noble and beautiful, and with a focus on art and music study integrated throughout, it also allowed time for our son to pursue a field of interest and spend time becoming proficient in it, in his case, art. Because of the excellent formation the Modg program provides, our son and we as parents, felt that liberal arts study should continue and our son is looking forward to continuing his art studies within the context of a liberal arts education.”
