Online Philosophy Courses 2011-2012 for Catholic Homeschoolers

In an increasing effort to fulfill this blog's mission, we are writing this post to provide links to online schools and services which are providing online classes this coming year in philosophy. We have limited the list to clearly-Catholic organizations for purposes of promoting Catholic homeschooling and those who work to provide great services to Catholic homeschoolers. We hope that you are able to find a place for philosophy in your homeschool this year.

Nota Bene: It seems that each school is offering different topics and different times, so the possibilities are great!!
