FIRST STEPS

Homeschool Guidelines

Every State in the United States and every Country has unique rules and guidelines that you must know and follow in order to legally home educate your child. FInd the various government documents that outline these rules and guidelines below. 

OPEN YOUR SCHOOL

.Once you have familiarized yourself with the pertinent laws in your area here are some other things to consider: Have you notified the necessary people/ offices? Have you officially withdrawn your child from public/private school? What will you name your school? Will your school be Religious or Secular? Now Breathe!!!

Connect with People

.You are not alone! You have us! Now build your community both locally and online! Find local co-ops, homeschool groups on social media, online classes, clubs, and supports, and extracurricular opportunites! Socialize!!

DETERMINE EDUCATIONAL APPROACH

If possible it's best to decide on a philosophy of education before deciding on curriculum or methods. Your homeschool approach will be determined by your philosophy. You may choose curriculum that you feel comfortable teaching or you may choose it based on your child's unique learning style. We will show you many good options!

Gathering Family Support

The Homeschool journey is much easier when you have the support of family. How do you have the conversation with the skeptics? How do you overcome their fears and objections? At what point do you just move on? 

Make a Plan

Homeschooling is, at its foundation, a life style choice. Successful homeschooling families incorporate outside activites as well as schoolwork into their schedule. You will also want to consider who will teach, how you will keep records, what will your daily schedule look like, what subjects will you teach, and even what will you use as your 'school space"? Here you will find suggestions and even samples for these questions.

Curriculum Choices

Once you have decided upon your educational approach, then you will need to purchase appropriate curriculum. Will you choose an online school, will you choose religious or secular curriculum? Will you sign up for classes that require a particular curriculum? Will you choose an all-in-one curriculum or different curriculum for different subjects? Whatever you are seeking, there are multiple quality options! If you don't find them here ask for guidance!!

Know Your Rights

Whether you are in the US or another country, if homeschooling is legal then there is a legal organziation available to support your journey. Know your rights! Seek out the legal associations! HSLDA is in the US. HEFA is in the UK. 

ExtraCurricular Activities & More

Once you have determined your schedule, it's time to figure out where the extra fun will fit in. Do your children love sports? gaming?art? writing? dance?What kind of fieldtrips sound interesting? It's fun! Don't stress, but also don't overcommit!
