Welcome to St. Bede’s Cooperative! St. Bede’s is a Catholic homeschool cooperative that utilizes a classical curriculum to educate our children in academics, virtue, and faith. We meet Tuesday mornings in Laurel, Maryland.
St. Bede’s Academy is a community of Catholic families who collaborate to help each other grow in knowledge of God’s truth, acknowledgement of His goodness, and appreciation for His beauty. We use a classical model and a cooperative framework to educate our children and to help them develop a love of learning, virtue, and faith.
We offer classes for grammar stage children, covering grades K-8. We follow the Catholic Schoolhouse curriculum, featuring science experiments, art projects, music, and memory work in religion, Latin, history, and geography. Our upper grammar students (grades 4-8) also meet in a seminar block for a history-based literature study.
Our preschoolers, three and four-year-old siblings of grammar students, partake in crafts, story time, show and tell, music, math, and science.
We are run and taught exclusively by parent volunteers. For children under age 2, we also offer a nursery.
Registration for the 2022-2023 school year opens on March 1st for returning families and, space permitting, for new families on April 1st. If you are interested in learning more about our program or would like to come visit us for a day, please contact us at email@example.com.
