A Monastic Scholé Tradition...
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.
The 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.” It is "monastic" because of the perfection of scholé when it was married to Scripture in the Middle Ages monasteries, giving us the contemplative study method known as Lectio Divina. Queen of Angels Cooperative Academy is an experienced-centered homeschool co-op, focused on a restful Catholic Classical/Charlotte Mason Education. Parents have the flexibility to choose and maintain their personal curriculum at home, while still enjoying a "group learning" experience in a restful Classically Catholic environment. We are proud member of the Scholé Groups network.
