Yes, Billerica Catholic Religious Education offers a Home Study option. We believe that it is important to support parents to be the primary educators of their children in the way of the faith, in the manner they best see fit.
Families who choose Home Study will receive materials that students complete at home with the assistance of their parents/guardians. Accountability and assessment will vary based on the program (based on age/grade).
- Home Study materials will be distributed in September and then periodically throughout the year, as needed.
- Home Study students participating in the First Reconciliation and First Eucharist preparation are expected to attend all scheduled meetings, rehearsals and workshops, with their parents/guardians (except the parent meeting in the fall, which is for adults only), pertaining to the preparation for those sacraments.
