Fine Arts/Music - Essential to Catholic learning, a program of study to introduce or continue the student’s familiarity with the great hymns of the Church.

Recommended by Laura Berquist, author of "Designing Your Own Classical Curriculum: A Guide to Catholic Home Education:"

"Even little children can learn the hymns that are sung in church, or the ones that ought to be. Soprano, Carol Ireland's voice is so rich and melodious that the dignity of these treasured hymns will surely make its way into the hearts of your children." Laura Berquist
