Highlands Latin Houston is a unique homeschool support program. We offer a teacher-led, traditional classroom experience for homeschool families. Students and teachers gather twice weekly for all course instruction, and lessons and studying are completed during the remainder of the week at home. In addition to presenting a rich educational experience, we seek to foster a sense of community among students and families who value a classical, Christian education.
Students in grades K – 12 will receive instruction in subjects such as Latin, classical studies, literature, composition, and science. We utilize the Memoria Press Curriculum, and classes are led by enthusiastic, knowledgeable teachers. In all that we do, we aim to present the Good, the True, and the Beautiful to students in a way that will guide not only their studies, but also their development as people.
Below are examples of courses that will be available. There will be additional classes offered – check back for updates in coming weeks!
