DOMUS means HOME in Latin.  So The Domus Academy is The Home Academy.  How appropriate!  That’s what we do. 

The Domus Academy isn’t about a place of learning, a place in the home.  It is about a lifestyle of learning, centered around the home and more importantly around the people in that home – Daddy our fearless leader and principal, Mummy our teacher and mentor, Alethea our prefect and guardian, Timothy our spokesperson, and Nathalie our class clown.  And in May 09, God-willing, we will add another student to the Academy! 

It’s going to be a fantastic year!  Come join in the ride!

  1. ooo I’m so glad you’re blogging Angie! Keep it up and pray that you’ll have great health as you carry your fourth. Btw, thanks for sending the last book! God bless!

  2. That’s a lovely family picture. So glad you started this blog to share about what’s happening in your homeschool. It will definitely be an inspiration for me. Take care and have a safe and smooth birth. God bless!

  3. Hi Angie,

    Like the other folks, I am so elated to find your new blog and the speed it is updated. You are a blessing to all and I’ve learnt much from you. Happy New Year, and may 2009 be a bountiful year for you and your family. God bless.

  4. how do we make an appointment to visit your place and what is your address and contact number?

    • Hello Judy,

      I’m trying to allow as few visitors as possible during our school weeks, but you are welcome to come over during our school holidays the next of which coincides with the March school holidays. Alternatively, some Saturday mornings are also okay, but you’ll have to email me at thehomelibrary@gmail.com to confirm first. We live in Pasir Ris very near Downtown East in a condo named Sandy Palm. Contact number at home is 65814478. Mobile is 96193134.

  5. Hi Angie

    I look after content & editorial at onSponge, a learning & parenting community for parents of tweens ie kids in the 7-14 age range.

    Going through your blogs on homeschooling, I surmised that you have tweens in your family.

    I would like to invite you to volunteer as a regular blogger to the onSponge parenting community in the area of bringing up tweens or those close to being one!

    Or you could consider posting regularly on onSponge a selected blog from your current site, reducing the need to create any fresh blogs but allowing our community visitors the chance to witness your sharing.

    If you come on in as a blogger, we would have to give you a blogger panelist account status that provides you the right to post blogs. Ordinary members cannot do that.

    Let me know if you need any clarification.

    All the best for homeschooling your kids.

  6. Hi Angie, I chanced upon your website and your unique homeschooling experience – right here in Singapore! While this is pretty common overseas, this is a somewhat less common route here. Can you please share why you decided to homeschool yr kids? Pros, there are many, but do you experience any cons?

    If you have written it here before, just point the way to it and I’ll read it from yr blog. Many thanks!

  7. Hi Angie,

    I’ve a pair of twins and have the intention of homeschooling them due to my background as an educator. Is it possible for you to pass me the contact of Liu Lao Shi, your kids’ mandarin teacher? Tks!

  8. Dear Angie,

    Praise the Lord ! And thank you for all these wonderful sharing of your homeschooling journey.

    I am a homemaker of a 3 year-old boy and a 2 year-old girl. My son is with Montessori Kindergarten. I have planned to homeschool my kids next year.

    I am keen of adopting CM’s method, but wish that you may assist me. I am pretty worried and concerned that I may lost somewhere as CM’s method seems to be do not have fixed books list/curriculumn. That seems very scarry to me! (As I was a trained accountant, a very organised personality and character.)

    I have no idea how should I start and what should I do. Please help. Thanks a lot!

  9. We may move to the US & would probably homeschool the ‘Singapore syllabus’. Frankly, I don’t know where to start. Any advice? To start off, could you recommend a book for me to read about homeschooling? I’m very new at this.

  10. I like your site. I think home schoolers’ parents are super human beings. I cannot do it!!

    The reason I am writing to you is to tell you about Singapore’s first Children’s Exposition that I am organising on 20th Nov. The event will showcase social projects where children (9-14yrs old) as a group have designed a solution for a problem that bothers them and implement it. I am approaching lots of schools in Singapore and want to know if this is what homeschoolers have done and if they would be interested in 1. showcasing their projects or / and 2. parents and children would like to attend.

    Please let me know if you would be interested ? I can call you or send you more info.

    Regards

  11. Hi, I got directed here from the Home Library website, I’m looking for the book Raising Godly Tomatoes. I understand the Home Library is no longer functioning, any idea where I can find this book in Singapore? Thanks!
