70 Girls - Homeschooled at a Monastery
Recently, there seems to be an increased interest for lay families in America to involve their children in programs run by various Orthodox monasteries. I have discovered week-long spiritual youth camps and small schools forming, then I came across this opportunity in Arizona which was a pleasant surprise.
Since 1995, the sisterhood of St. Paisius Orthodox Monastery, a women’s coenobitic community, has welcomed teenage girls who wish to live at the monastery while continuing their studies through a home-school curriculum. Almost 70 girls have lived with them, ranging in age from 10 to 17, coming from homes all over the country.

Has anyone ever visited this monastery?
I'd love to hear about your experience.
