See What Parents Are Saying About Schola

Dear Schola,

"TGC is a fantastic series - university level in rigor while teaching God's Word in the context of Western thought. " R.P.

"When I reflect back over these last four years and consider the impact Schola has made on our family, I am intensely grateful. These courses, which literally carried us through high school, also impacted our Christian faith, equipped my kids to tackle hard subjects and high teacher expectations, provided like-minded and positive friendships, and gave me an avenue to help them navigate high school successfully and prepare for college. Thank you, Mrs. Hart, Mrs. Samuelsen, Mrs. Vickrey, Mrs. Zimmerman, and Mrs. Kirby for bringing quality into the classroom and investing so deeply into your students." C.W.

"My wife and I have been very impressed with Schola. Both [our daughters] have learned a great deal in math, science and the humanities. ...The accountability has been great ... and we find that Schola has struck just the right balance between supporting us in our overall educational goals for [our children] and tutoring them in specific subjects. We have four kids, and we are not sure how we would manage without Schola." M.M.

"My daughter has been a Latin student of Mrs. Samuelsen for 4 years and has learned to love Latin and Roman history. Mrs. Samuelsen's clear and orderly style of teaching has enabled my daughter to tackle a hard language and excel. In addition, Mrs. Samuelsen emphasizes that a firm foundation of the basics is essential to succeed and gives her students the tools needed to build that foundation. She is one of my daughter's favorite teachers and my daughter will miss studying Latin with her." M.B.

"We love Schola, we love the teachers, and we are so impressed with the education! I hope to be involved with Schola for years to come!" –M.K.

"[Our daughter] has done so well at Schola these last three years and I am truly thankful for your part in that. In addition to the academic excellence that she has enjoyed, we are also thankful for the positive peer influence. God has been so faithful in answering our many and varied prayers." –J.F.

"We love Schola. Nothing has been more rewarding than having the opportunity to be a part of the Schola family. We are looking forward to several more years of working with you all to educate our children within this loving Christian group. " –M.C.

"[My daughter] is really growing in her thinking in [TGC Primer], and we are so thankful for the education she is getting. It's been very encouraging to watch her learn while enjoying her learning this past semester." –C.M.

"I cannot tell you how many times I have praised all of my daughter's Schola teachers. She went to college so prepared to do the coursework. [Mrs Hart] blessed her with a love for science and gave her such a wonderful foundation. She felt like her freshman sciences were so much review of what she learned from [Mrs. Hart] and Mrs. Bird." –J.G.

"I am more than pleased with the teachers, atmosphere, and education presented by Schola. You have all been a blessing to my children and challenged them in many ways. I am convinced that what they are learning (and the Godly environment you provide) is the best I've found. The TGC class has been overwhelming at times, but outstanding! I have enjoyed learning through this syllabus alongside my daughter. I was concerned that all the 'out-classes' would damage our 'home school' atmosphere, but I am pleased to say that we are stronger because of these classes." –C.L

"We are very grateful for Schola and we think the teachers are the very best thing about it! We are so impressed with the thoughtfulness and creativity with which you have approached the materials and the caring and enthusiasm with which you teach our children. But, most of all, it is so evident that you desire to glorify God through what you do at Schola, and that is a powerful example set before our children's eyes. Thank you!" –B.B.

"Both of my daughters have been blessed to be a part of this wonderful school for home school families. We as parents have been extremely impressed with the incredible amount of care and consideration the teachers dedicate to their classes. I cannot say enough how much we are pleased with this program. The TGC program is amazing. The students are given studies that are meaningful and thought provoking. Our family is looking forward to supporting this excellent program for several years to come! Thank you Schola!" –M.K.

"Having two students under the teaching of Mrs. Samuelsen has been a huge blessing as we now have 2 very confident Latin students in our home. Not only has a foundation been laid for them to learn other languages, but their vocabulary has expanded by leaps and bounds - a plus for my oldest who will be taking her SAT in the near future. Mrs. Samuelsen's knowledge and experience teaching Latin serves her well in the classroom as she provides resources and teaching in an effective way to help the student consistently make progress from week to week. She is very clear in her expectations and knows Latin so that students aren't confused or wondering about an assignment. Additionally, we are big fans of Cambridge Latin Course. We have used other curricula in the past, but CLC has been our favorite. Learning the Roman history and culture is a great addition to our history studies, and the fun storyline is enjoyable and gives confidence as students are able to read so quickly. I have 2 younger children who plan to follow in their older siblings footsteps - probably my biggest testimony of all!" J.F.


"We have been so happy the Lord directed us to Schola for this school year. Our children have been challenged and that has resulted in growth in several areas. The time and effort the TGC teachers have poured into my children is appreciated more than my words are adequate to express." –C.C.

"Our family has been truly blessed by your classes at Schola. Our son has gained many new insights, ideas, and 'worldviews.' The workload has been challenging, yet I have enjoyed his zest to rise to the occasion and discipline himself. Truly, we are pleased with his growth as well as his continued enthusiasm for learning!" –C.R.

"My daughter has had a great year, feeling loved and supported. Her effort has improved recently as well. I support all the Schola teachers and the Christian environment you provide. To have the consistent values and educational goals demonstrated in class reinforces teaching at home. Attraction not promotion will bring the students that are meant to be at Schola. Thank you for all you do for all the students and parents." –G.R.

"Our family has been EXTREMELY pleased with Schola and will continue to share the good news with our friends. We would like to send a special thanks to the instructors for providing our son with a nurturing and challenging experience." –D.R

"We heartily recommend Mrs. Pat Samuelsen as a knowledgable, faithful, effective, and trusted teacher and leader. Mrs. Samuelsen has provided many years of excellent instruction in Latin and several other subjects to home school students in the Sugar Land area. Our daughters have studied Latin I, II, and III with Pat and have enjoyed her classes immensely. While Pat is very knowledgeable and always well organized, she is especially good at motivating and equipping her students to do their best. Students and parents are very fond of Mrs. Samuelsen.
