What Are The Best Homeschooling Programs?

Apr 3, 2008
Parents are finding that homeschooling is becoming a more popular choice day after day. Every year there is a growth of about 7 - 15% of parents who decide to teach their children at home.

Right now there are close to two million children who are learning from homeschooling programs.

Homeschooling is a hotly debated topic, but the evidence is clear: Homeschooled children are thriving. Children taught at home tend to do better academically than their public school counterparts. Homeschooled children ace standardized tests and excel in college.

Children who are taught at home are encouraged to keep learning their entire lives. College is a goal that most homeschooling families have in mind for their children.

Homeschooling programs offer families flexibility. Children not only learn skills and knowledge, but they master it. With the pace set by the child, there is no time constraint to have a concept finished within a certain period of time.

Children who are homeschooled only compete with themselves. They don't have to worry about keeping up with others. They also have the luxury of more one-on-one time with the teacher. Lessons can also be adjusted to fit the child's needs.

Let's say your child is a math wizard but struggles in English. You can address this with homeschooling programs that focus more on English and less on arithmetic.

This demonstrates one of the greatest advantages of homeschooling programs. You aren't just teaching with your child's pace in mind, you are also addressing certain strengths and weaknesses.

There are no time schedules, which is another great thing about homeschooling programs. Homeschooling is usually at home, so parents can decide when it's convenient to have lessons.

This doesn't mean that the discipline of paying to a schedule isn't important. It just means that you have the flexibility of starting and ending a lesson when you want it, or whenever your child is through with his/her work.

Homeschooling programs offer another luxury: The ability to teach in a safe, secure environment. Parents can choose to create a learning environment that is comfortable for their children.

Wouldn't it be fun to have lessons in a museum or zoo? When you're learning about plants, animals, or some other related subject, you can!

With homeschooling programs you have the flexibility of incorporating more fieldtrips that help with learning. Sometimes these are more practical than lecturing as if you were in a traditional classroom.
