The Thomas More Institute is part of the The Avalon Schools network; Brookewood School is an independent, Catholic day school for girls in grades 1-12 and The Avalon School is an independent, Catholic day school for boys in grades K-12. Both schools emphasize a small classroom environment with a rigorous Catholic liberal arts education. The Thomas More Institute reflects the values and missions of these schools and offers a way for homeschooling students to participate in both schooling communities, whether it is through taking a class or two or through participating in each school's sports teams and extracurricular activities.
Institute Families have access to the expanding library of resources for home schooling at The Avalon School. For information on accessing the collection, please call the director at 301 963-8022. Both students and parents are allowed borrowing rights at the library.
Educational Consultant/ Teacher
An experienced faculty member is assigned to your family to provide assistance in curriculum development, planning, and execution of educational plans. The consultant maintains the academic records for the student and helps the parent develop report cards and progress reports. When necessary, the consultant will compare work to the student's peer group to determine if the student is working at grade level.
The Institute will provide full academic records for reporting to the state or for preparation of transcripts, official report cards or other compliance documents.
To arrange for professional tutors, please contact the director. Fees are highly competitive and results are impressive.
Thomas More Institute students can try out for and compete with Avalon or Brookewood's sports teams including Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Middle School teams. Avalon currently offers competitive sports teams in soccer, baseball, and basketball. Brookewood offers field hockey, soccer, volleyball, and cross country. The sports fee for 2023-2024 is $300 per sport.
