Homeschooling or school-from-home: the choice is yours
Homeschooling your child is a big commitment. As a homeschooling parent, you research the curriculum, develop lesson plans, and grade homework and quizzes. Ultimately, you are dedicating yourself and your time to your child’s homeschool education from kindergarten to high school.
We expect parents to be partners in student learning. The role of the parent is to provide organization and structure, to help create a proper learning environment, and to promote continuity in the learning process.
