Catholic Homeschool Curriculum

High School Mathematics Department

Algebra and Geometry in particular are essential building blocks for a basic understanding of math and science in the modern world, but more than that, they are important for learning critical reasoning skills. Tradition has it that the inscription above the entrance of Plato’s famous Academy read “let no one ignorant of Geometry enter” because Geometry is a prerequisite for higher studies—a way to develop and exercise the powers of the mind.

Seton offers a rigorous training in math based on the time-tested Saxon method which involves an incremental approach with constant review of previous material. Seton offers optional DVD lectures for the Saxon courses.
