ARCHES, a non-profit organization, provides standard and honors classes to students in grades seven through twelve. We provide affordable education in a classical, great books based, Roman Catholic curriculum. We offer classes in a variety of subjects: Art, Mathematics, Languages, Literature, History, Science, and more, with classes being added every year. ARCHES started in 1995 as a literature discussion class. Since then, we have grown and rent classroom space and meet one, two, or three days a week, participating in a wide variety of classes.
All classes offer challenging learning experiences for students in grades seven through twelve.
ARCHES tutorial-based classes are designed to supplement course work being done in home schools, thereby following the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church in proclaiming parents to be the primary educators of their children.
ARCHES strives to follow the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church in proclaiming parents to be the primary educators of their children. We, as educators, also understand it to be more enriching to conduct some classes in a group setting. Our classes are tutorial-based. Parents have the responsibility for making sure the students take the appropriate classes, participate fully in those classes, complete assigned homework, papers, tests, and ultimately learn the material. This includes giving the final grades and assigning the course credits to their children. The tutors facilitate education and do not replace the parents.
