“Military homeschooling” is most logically divided into two categories—1) military families who homeschool their children and 2) homeschool graduates who want to enlist in the military.
Military Families Who Homeschool
Homeschooling among military families is becoming more and more popular, as it provides a consistent educational setting for families who move frequently. The Department of Defense recognizes that, just like all other parents, military parents have the right to homeschool their children. Nevertheless, miscommunication about the DoD’s role in home education programs sometimes occurs. HSLDA has been highly involved in ensuring that military homeschoolers are well-informed of and retain their rights.
Homeschool Graduates Enlisting in the Military
The number of homeschool graduates who enlist in the United States military continues to grow, but ensuring that these men and women are recognized for their academic achievements takes constant vigilance.
