Who we are . . .

Queen of Angels Cooperative Academy is a Catholic homeschool initiative that meets weekly to engage in the monastic scholé tradition. The word scholé (pronounced skoh-LAY) comes from a Greek word that means “restful learning,” with the connotation of “contemplation,” “conversation,” and “reflection.”

Queen of Angels Cooperative Academy believes in a rich and generous education, seated deeply in truth, beauty, and goodness, that nourishes the whole child – mind, body, and soul – and gently trains him up, ordering his affections to Our Lord. We seek to rebuild a thriving Catholic culture, in our community and within our Domestic Monasteries, by creating a gathering place for families to join in the Great Conversation, a warm and inviting environment that ignites the flames of wonder and fires the moral imagination. We engage in Sacred Traditions and Liturgies through an abundant and cohesive curriculum, embodying a strong Catholic identity, and immersing ourselves the Monastic Liberal Arts.

We serve the Diocese of Gary, northwest Indiana, and surrounding communities.
