How do I Homeschool Through High School?

Perhaps you have successfully taught your children through elementary and middle school, but now the time you have been dreading has finally come—high school. Leah Bromen, who had many doubts about whether she would be able to homeschool her children through high school, offers some encouragement for those feeling similarly.

Should I become a Director?

Perhaps you are considering becoming a community Director, yet the prospect of doing so scares you. While you might not think that you have the necessary experience or knowledge to direct a community, you might be surprised. Amanda Butler, a homeschool mom and Classical Conversations Director, believes that Directing is really not all that different from parenting your own children.

Things Homeschooling is Good At: Benefits of Homeschooling

Lessons on Love of Knowledge and Home

I was homeschooled until college. As some of my friends reached high school, their parents put them into the State establishment but not mine. My high-school years were everything I needed, and I even took the luxury of an extra year before leaving for college.

Many parents feel a pressure to place children in State schools when they approach high-school age. I think it has something to do with the accessibility of sports, programs, or even socialization. I can’t speak to this decision or to the pressures that drive it because I’m not a parent of high-school age children. I can say that I turned out fine.

Here are some of the homeschooling benefits that twelve years provided me with.

A Director’s Testimony of Successful Homeschool Students

What do our Directors love about their jobs? Most of all, they enjoy watching their students grow into successful, Christian adults who are capable of handling mature responsibilities and defending what they believe. In her time directing, Michelle experienced many such moments of her students going above and beyond her expectations. One of her best memories is of taking her students to defend homeschooling in a forum hosted by the Washington, D.C. government. Check out her incredible story in this video:

Homeschooling through Every Season

One thing you can predict about life is that it’s unpredictable. You can’t anticipate every life situation that comes up. Life goes on with broken bones, health scares, funerals, financial difficulties, you name it—all while you’re homeschooling. How do you continue to stay diligent when truly all you want to do is go back to bed? I think we’ve all asked that question.

I’m not sure I have all the answers. But I do have one answer—God. During seasons of difficulty, I press into Christ, asking Him for the provision I need, the wisdom I need, the energy I need, the daily portion to walk one day out.

Here are some lessons I have worked on for homeschooling through the hard seasons:

The Gratefulness Campaign

The coronavirus pandemic has caused the entire world to slow to a grinding halt. Sickness, sadness, and loneliness are running rampant in our communities. Schools across the nation have shut their doors; healthcare workers are overwhelmed, and unemployment claims are off the charts. This is a difficult time on so many levels and one that we hope is never repeated, but there has never been a better opportunity to slow down and be grateful for the many blessings in our lives. Let’s spread some positivity by sharing our gratefulness stories!

Cell phone usage

Can We Put The Phones Down?

I love the texts my teenage girls send me just saying they love me, and the links my friends send with the latest podcast. I’m also thankful that if I or my daughter has a flat tire or gets lost, help is just a phone call away. But if we find ourselves spending more time with people who are not with us than we spend listening and talking to the ones right in front of us, something is amiss.
