Home School Information and Resources

The Three Different Ways to Home School 

There is more than one way to home school your child(ren). You may notice that the most difficult way is when you choose the option to teach what you want to teach. You will then put together a curriculum rather than have one already created. If you want help with the curriculum and want it to follow the state's common core standards you can find information here explaining the common core and core-curriculum by grade here

ONE: HOME SCHOOL WITHOUT AN ACCREDITED ONLINE PUBLIC SCHOOL EDUCATIONAL PLATFORM

Here are educational websites you can use free of charge (you can donate if you want to, if there is an option) if you are teaching without an online public school educational platform.

Khan Academy offeres all of the courses that are needed for pre-K-8 but you can also find a few high school and college courses. This is an awesome website. The learners complete lessons and tests online at Khan Academy

IXL is also a great tool for teaching with online lessons.

Using the link above you will learn about the Notice Of Intent (NOI) that must be filled out in order to home school your child(ren). Or use this link for the NOI page https://riseresourcecenter.org/notice-of-intent/ 

Connections Accredited Online Public School (Free)

I started using Connections Academy in 2008 when my youngest daughter was in kindergarten. This is a grea school to use because it is actually a public school which uses the same curriculum and standards used in the brick and mortar schools according to your state. You wil notice that the same books are used so in this program as in the brick and morter schools. The school sends by mail all of the materials that you need and typically a computer depending on your state.  1-800-382-6010
