(formally "Regina Caeli Academy")

Relieving you of administrative stresses, giving you strength, confidence, and support

to teach your own children.

Mantellum Matris Academy (MMA) is a private school satellite program (PSP) founded in 1994 to administratively support Catholic families who independently home educate their children.


As an MMA family, you enjoy the freedom of using the curricula and resources of your choosing, while knowing you are enrolled in a school-of-record which will work with you to help meet the home education requirements in your state. We do not establish hybrid schools of any sort.

I not only provide administrative oversight, I share with you my experiences gained as a veteran home educator and administrator in post-secondary education and much more.

Having been founded thirty years ago in California as Regina Caeli Academy, I continue to offer the same services to like-minded families across the country and beyond. Our name change in 2024 now better describes who we are and what we do: We, parents, don the armor of Our Lady's Mantle in order to fight for our children and our families in today's broken society.

Please explore my website to discover all I offer, my recommendations for resources, and then schedule an appointment so we can discuss how I can help.

Regina Caeli, ora pro nobis!

Our Patroness

Regina Caeli, Queen of Heaven

V. Regina caeli, laetare, alleluia.
R. Quia quem meruisti portare, alleluia.
V. Resurrexit, sicut dixit, alleluia.
R. Ora pro nobis Deum, alleluia.

V. Gaude et laetare, Virgo Maria, alleluia.
R. Quia surrexit Dominus vere, alleluia.


Deus, qui per resurrectionem Filii tui, Domini nostri

Iesu Christi, mundum laetificare dignatus es: praesta, quaesumus; ut per eius Genetricem Virginem Mariam, perpetuae capiamus gaudia vitae. Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum.


Regina Caeli, "Queen of Heaven," is one of the many titles bestowed upon Our Blessed Mother. Not only do we meditate upon The Coronation of Mary as the final Glorious Mystery of the Rosary, we find this title in Scripture:

"There appeared a great sign in heaven:  a woman clothed with

the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown

of twelve stars."  (Rev. 12:1)


How fitting that our founders chose Regina Caeli as their Patroness! As homeschooling parents especially, we must trust in Mary. Let us call to her, let us love her, let us confide in her, because she gives her all to us. We have a Mother in Heaven who is also a Queen; thus, we need to turn to her with full faith and hopefulness. Ask her for the gift of prayer, a prayer of the heart said only for love, a love for her and Jesus. Let us also ask for a consistency of prayer, to always be joined to her heart, and therefore to the Heart of Jesus. We cannot raise and educate our children otherwise.
