Hear from Our Families:

“The MODG curriculum is not only practical and realistic but inspires a zeal for learning and results in the formation of an integrated person. The beauty of the curriculum is its built-in provision to help the child develop both their spiritual and education potential with a wide range of reading materials and assignments that guides the student to look deeper while at the same time, grasp the big picture. Many times throughout the year, reading selections or writing assignments will coincide with the religious feasts of the year or with national holidays that help the child to understand the here-and-now but at the same time realize their particular part in the world and in Salvation History. It would be hard to express the depth of the student’s realization when they can see their own birth date on a history time-line which begins more than 3,000 years ago. The Mother of Divine Grace curriculum and teaching methods help the child to develop knowledge not only of who they are but help to challenge them to live consistently with what they believe.”
