Delectare Online

About Delectare Online

Delectare was founded by Jennifer & Jeremiah Tutwiler, second-generation homeschoolers and the parents of seven.

We saw that, like us, many families wanted to connect their children with other MP students, especially in the middle school years, so they could benefit from discussions about the rich material they were learning. We started Delectare to meet this need, providing a video-conference format that allows homeschooled children from across the country to meet, discuss their studies and make new friends along the way!

Literature 5A/6M

Christy's oldest child attended Highlands Latin School for two years, prior to the family moving from Louisville. Not wanting to lose the rich education offered by HLS, Christy and her husband decided to homeschool using the school's Memoria Press curriculum. She credits MP for the depth of her family's focus on truth, goodness and beauty and she rejoices that her children do not simply try to achieve good grades, but actually delight in learning.
