Event description

Description

A number of families in the North of England have been observing with interest the formation of the Regina Caeli Academy in Bedfordshire over the past 18 months and are exploring setting up an academy in the North of England, with a view to opening in Sep 2020.

The exact location of the academy would depend on the families who wish to attend, but is expected to be between Newcastle and Leeds.

Regina Caeli is a private, independent tutoring centre operating in the Catholic tradition. It offers two full days of taught lessons in school (Mondays and Thursdays) and lesson plans for three days of lessons taught at home, for boys and girls aged 4-18. The two taught days comprise the majority of academic work and there is significant support for the homeschooling element. The organisation has grown rapidly since its launch in 2003, now operating in 16 locations in the United States (with 8 more in planning) and, of course, now also in Bedfordshire in the UK.

Regina Caeli is a response to the need for affordable, authentic, classical education taught in light of the Catholic tradition. Its primary goal is to aid the students in knowing, loving, and serving God by providing them with a “classical style” of education so they learn how to think critically and become life-long learners. The mission is both educational and apostolic combining high educational standards with faithful adherence to the Magisterium of the Church.

Kari Beckman, one of the founders of Regina Caeli, will be in the UK at the end of February, so this information session is timed to coincide with that. She will give a talk about the hybrid academy and answer any questions families may have.

The timetable is as follows:

12.15 Teas and coffees / lunch (please bring your own packed lunches)

12.45 Brief introduction, followed by a talk by Kari Beckman, founder of RCA

13.45 Coffee and cake

14.15 Talk by the Trustees of the Bedfordshire RCA on how it works in practice

15.00 Q&A's, and next steps for interested parents

There is a separate room to occupy the children, plus a playground outside, including zip-wire. We’re aiming to get some help to entertain the children (tbc).

Cost: Early bird (prior to 7th Feb) just £15 per family; £20 thereafter - to contribute towards Kari Beckman’s trip to the UK and the hire of the venue.
