Compelling reasons homeschooling is a good choice.
While it is understandable to feel inadequate or unqualified, we hope you will see homeschooling as an amazing opportunity to be your children’s primary educational influence; discovering, teaching, and discussing what they are learning through the lens of your family’s values, principles and beliefs.
We’re confident you and your children are going to discover far more together than you anticipated and will find the whole experience exciting rather than scary. We also hope you will experience a marked difference in your children’s overall well-being. You may be finding your children are more rested, refreshed, and able to take the breaks they need when they need them. Many children will be relieved to be free of the peer pressure and social situations at school.
Many content-rich classes are offered through homeschool co-ops and other organizations. We hope the following list of online resources and suggestions will be helpful to you. There are tons of resources available outside of the public schools.
