Getting Started:

The steps to home education?  Here they are:

 

  • Register with a Cover School, also called an Umbrella School. Cover schools can be quite different from each other.  Research several and talk to the administrator.  Find out what they offer and what the fees are.  Will they be available to help if you have questions down the road??

  • Choose a curriculum:  There are so many different curriculums available that it can seem overwhelming.  Consider your childs learning style and then look at curriculum that follows that style.  

  • Join a support group:  Most cover schools have a support group also.  If not, find one.  The amount of information you can get from other home educating families can be invaluable.  The other parents can help you with curriculum, field trips can be posted, etc.  It's a great amenity for your homeschool journey.  You  may also choose to join one or  more support groups on Facebook.  These groups can provide invaluable information, along with ideas and suggestions from seasoned homeschooling parents.

Please be aware that recent law changes state that a family can apply with the State, as a private school, in order to homeschool.   For more information, please read this article as written by the Home School Legal Defense Association.
