About Us

Hello and thank you for your interest in CHRSM!(Catholic Homeschool Resource & Support Ministry) We are a volunteer run ministry of St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Purcellville.

There are many wonderful homeschool educational opportunities available to us in Loudoun County. CHRSM differs from the others in that we seek to be a support to the entire homeschool family. We accomplish this first and foremost by making prayer a focus of our ministry. Additionally, we provide opportunities for the homeschooling parent to find the support and encouragement they need. Finally, we offer classes for children 3-18 in order to supplement that which the parent is able to accomplish at home, and to provide our children with a sense of community.

For the upcoming 2024-2025 academic year, our community will gather on Tuesdays for Pre-K and Elementary, and Tuesdays/Thursdays for Middle and High School. We meet at the Parish Education Center.

Please review our Mission Statement, Code of Conduct and Policies and Procedures located in the FAQ tab to learn more about our ministry.

Our application window runs from January 15th - March 15th for the upcoming school year. New families can apply to our program during this time by clicking the 'Join' tab on the top right corner of our website and filling out an application form online. There is no cost to apply. Applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received. Your family will be invited to come for an informational tour on select Tuesdays in February and March.

Class registration for new St. Francis families and current CHRSM families begins in mid-March each year. Our program can only accommodate a limited number of families. Once registration has occurred with all St. Francis families and current CHRSM families, we will review further availability and contact you if we are able to offer your family a spot in our program. At that time, you would need to submit a signed Statement of Faith and your application fee to our Registrar. Please see the FAQ's section for more details.

If you have further questions or would like to learn more about our homeschool ministry, please email us at [email protected]. If you are an active parishioner of St. Francis de Sales parish, please direct all inquiries to [email protected]. God bless.

In Christ,
The CHRSM Staff
