Home schooling has become a popular choice over the past two decades. In fact, the US Department of Education estimates that about two million families are currently holding home schooling classes for their children. If you are considering skipping traditional schools but are not sure this is the best choice for your child, here is a quick overview of the pros and cons of home schooling.
Another benefit for home schooled kids in high school is the opportunity to go at their own pace. Gifted kids can test at the local college and have the ability to dual enroll in college classes.
These credits are counted for both high school and college.
The best part about dual enrolling for your homeschooler? The classes are free and the only thing you have to pay for is books! Some kids get their AA finished by the time they graduate from high school!
