Columbus Academy
Columbus Academy was formed in 1993 to support and encourage Roman Catholic families in Iowa that have chosen home education for their children. Social gatherings, field trips, and a high school graduation Mass are just a few of the opportunities provided with membership to Columbus Academy. Our group stays connected through our web site, which contains a large variety of helpful information, as well as a forum through which our members post questions, share advice, offer prayer requests, etc…


Full access to this web site is reserved for registered members of Columbus Academy. New families are always welcomed. You will find our statement of faith, instructions for paying dues, and our registration form by clicking on “Request Membership” above.


If you would like to meet some CA families and get acquainted with our group before joining, you are welcomed to attend one of CA’s events. You may contact Lisa Tatz at for information on our upcoming events or for more information about Columbus Academy.



                Columbus Academy is a Roman Catholic Home Schooling Support Group with the purpose of encouraging parents as the primary educators of their children.  We seek to form friendships, share resources, and learn from one another while remaining faithful to the Magisterium and all the Truths of the Catholic Church.



   "The greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion, 

which is war against the child. The mother doesn't learn 

to love, but kills to solve her own problems. Any country 

that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love,

but to use any violence to get what they want."  Mother Theresa
