  1. I started a Facebook group this morning where we can all talk Secular Ed- https://www.facebook.com/groups/1392201754219831/?ref=br_rs "Are you religious, but homeschooling on a secular basis? Are you classically homeschooling, and willing to use materials that are not 100% religion-free? Are you non-Protestant, but interested in using some classical materials with a whiff of Protestantism? Welcome to the club!" GROUP TYPE
  2. I'm right there with you. I guess the bottom line is that their magazine is indeed an advertisement for their methods and products. If classical ed is to be compared to the Wizarding World I'm a Weasley or possibly a Lovegood. We use curriculum and I decide what my kids learn every year based on my own research and experience. We also hardly ever sit at a desk/table and I feel complete freedom in adapting any and all curriculum to suit my students. I do agree that all their articles come off sounding a bit authoritarian. Luckily, I feel fine ignoring their tone.
  3. As long as you are on the Charter site you get the charter materials. They appear to be separate as the many.many downloads I've purchased from the original site aren't there.
  4. I think they mean for it to take a year for kids ages 2-4th grades. There are also review weeks built in that stretch it out to 32 weeks? Highlands Latin school runs about that length and the materials are based on those they use at that school. We are starting now and will probably do 2 lessons a week and go into First Form when we're done. We also school year round so its no big deal to start now.
  5. I ordered Grammar School Latin and just ripped the box open. As I'm looking it over they took out memorizing religious phrases and changed up some of the vocab. We're going to speed through it from now till Fall when I hope to start first form. I'm just giddy about not having to secularize it all myself.
  6. Disclaimer-I don't work for or receive anything from Memoria Press. That said, I enjoy using their materials and thus far have secularized them myself. I just found out that they started a charter school page and will customize a secular core for you if you call them. I just ordered our new latin stuff from this page and am so excited about trying them out. https://charter.memoriapress.com/
