HOW TO HOMESCHOOL
So, you are considering homeschooling...
So, you are thinking about homeschooling? With all of this uncertainty during CoVID, we do not blame you for looking at alternative options.
Our family started homeschooling as one was going into high school, one in middle school, and the other in elementary. I remember say, “I will NEVER homeschool”. I had heard all the misconceptions:
· “Homschoolers are weird.”
· “They will not have friends.”
· “They will not learn enough.”
· “How will they get into college?”
And, honestly I did not think I was quipped emotionally to teach them all day and thought I was not skilled enough and might sell them short. My kids were going to a great private school, but life had other plans. In hindsight, homeschooling was the best choice we ever made. Our oldest graduates from Palm Beach Atlantic this winter. She attended with a full academic scholarship and has continues to get straight A’s throughout college. Our middle child graduated high school as a certified architectural drafter and is now on a full academic scholarship to Florida Atlantic University for Architecture. And our youngest is a normal 13-year-old with a passion for animation. He has some great friends and participates in sports and more as a homeschooler. I contribute their success to a ton of prayer and how homeschooling has allowed them to learn independently and explore their passions.
