Thinking about Homeschooling Your Teen?

Whether you have been homeschooling for years or pulling your teen out of a public or private school, there is much that goes into the decision to teach your teen at home.

Here are some things to consider as you explore the homeschooling option. We encourage you to explore the information and resources at the links below.

  • Homeschooling high school requires parents to make a significant commitment to plan, teach, evaluate, and document their teen’s course work. Although there are many options for courses, how much time are you willing to devote to teaching your teen at home?
  • Because this is a partnership, how does your teen feel about homeschooling high school at home with you?
  • Will you and your teen have a network of support as you homeschool? Have you investigated opportunities in your community for support groups, possible co-ops, outside courses, or dual enrollment courses?
  • What is your commitment to homeschooling? Is this a last resort or a viable option in your mind? Your attitude is a huge factor on the success of this venture because there will be bumps in the road.

Once you have had an opportunity to discuss these issues and have decided to embark on your homeschool high school journey, then Carol Becker and Diane Kummer, HSLDA’s High School Consultants, are available to answer your questions, suggest appropriate resources, offer a listening ear, help you consider options, and encourage you in the process!
