4Real: Education in the Context of Real Life
4Real provides peer support for Catholic parent home educators committed to nurturing learning in a Catholic family atmosphere. They support families who design their own course of home studies, be it in whole or part. They emphasize the Church's Liturgical Year, living books, nature, beauty in art, music, and natural methods of learning. 4Real has its roots in a Catholic Charlotte Mason Yahoo group and has grown by providing a welcome to like-minded parents, especially those who are new to home education (homeschooling) or the Catholic faith. 4Real hopes to continue its ministry emphasizing 'Living Learning' discussions that are rich in ideas, gratifying, inspiring, and encourage creativity. This do-it-yourself desire will be further supported by 'Home as Haven' chats.
