Homeschooling for a military family has many benefits. The family can face many challenges such as moving frequently, one parent or neither parent being at home and an enormous amount of stress from transitioning to new schools. These are only a few of the factors that can have an impact on a child’s education. Here are some of the benefits homeschooling can have for a military family.
Continuity. An online curriculum moves with you so there is no adjusting to a new curriculum and new teachers.
Online Options. There are no textbooks or workbooks to limit progress as you are in the process of moving. Students can log in anywhere and at any time to complete their lessons.
Custom-Fit Learning. As a result of moving, students may experience learning gaps in certain subjects. Homeschooling, especially with an online program, allows the student to work ahead on those subjects which come more easily while mastering more difficult subjects at their own pace.
Family First Scheduling. Scheduling around the needs of the family is a wonderful benefit when it comes to spending quality time as a family when a parent returns home.
Explore. Homeschool field trips can be planned into your weekly schedule. These trips are an enriching way to learn about the culture and world around you in your new location.
