Online Home School

There are many advantages of online home school courses for your son or daughter. This is a trend that is rapidly growing in popularity as our interest in computers and technology increases.

Additionally, these types of homeschool classes are very useful when parents encounter tougher subjects like advanced math and science courses where extra practice and review is needed.

Some benefits include:

  • flexibility for students to study at any time as long as they have an Internet connection
  • preparation for the independent design of college coursework
  • well-suited for high school home study
  • integrated blend of the Internet and education
  • access to instructors via chat and email options

...and a few others:

  • children can study single subjects or a complete homeschool curriculum
  • very minimal parental involvement required
  • parent is available to interact with younger children or babies
  • interactive lessons, videos, games, and activities to engage students
  • immediate assessment of tests and quizzes
  • customer and technical support offered

An online homeschool program can be a suitable option for all types of learners; from a struggling student to a gifted student capable of more challenging assignments.

They are also perfectly suited for independent, techno-savvy learners who already enjoy using the computer.

What We Did

When using this option in our home, our child was given a laptop of her own to facilitate using the program.

We also provided a dedicated space for the supplemental books and handouts so everything could be kept together.

She worked independently and I reviewed her progress through the courses. I was also able to view the pace at which she was completing her lessons and adjust, if needed.

This type of program works best if your child is self-motivated and enjoys using the computer. It is also a very solitary way of studying so if your child prefers group activities, this could be a challenge for him or her.
