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.

It’s almost like having your own personal tutor…the flexibility allows me to make time with my family and for myself. I have many hobbies and enjoy catching up on all of them. My family is usually very busy but with this schedule, I can have fun with them and finish my work on time.”
