Hello, we're in a great homeschool co-op that meets weekly. My family and I are of Christian faith, while the co-op is Catholic based. It is of course totally fine by me, I explain to my children there are different religions, and each religion believes different things. But next year my son will be moving to the next level. This year we're using Abeka, and also following the curriculum at the co-op, which is working fine, because he's in the beginner class, but if he moves up to the next level, I feel it'd be way too difficult to use both Abeka and the curriculum they use at the co-op. I'm wondering if anyone else has ever experienced something like this, and how they handled it. As a strong Christian, who doesn't pray to saints and Mary (not that I'm judging anyone who does), do I immerse my son in a curriculum that is predominately Catholic, or continue to use my own curriculum and pick and chose what he does in "class"...even if that means not being able to participate most of the time because the other children will all be following the same curriculum? Any advice appreciated!
