The Benefits of Homeschooling

More than ever, students are required to keep up with the ever-changing nature of today’s world. Students no longer need a traditional classroom environment in order to gain the necessary skills to compete and thrive later in life. As a result, homeschool instruction is becoming more popular than ever before. The question is, can homeschool instruction be the right choice for you or your child? As unique and varied as our students are, so too should be the options for how they choose to learn.

If you are looking for flexibility, then there is no comparison to homeschool. Whether pursuing a bright future in athletics, or working with a specific learning need, students who use Franklin homeschool instruction find it to be the optimal choice for learning. Students can use a WASC-accredited, college-prep homeschool curriculum to prepare for top-flight high schools, and universities; in addition, those with learning differences benefit from Franklin’s customized approach that focuses on students’ strengths to achieve learning outcomes and build self-confidence.

An important consideration for homeschool instruction is the social environment for your child. While some students thrive in a busy school setting with 20-30 classmates, others tend to feel more comfortable in small, 1:1 environments. These small learning environments build social skills through peer interactions, nurture friendships, and offer opportunities for group activities. A great way to determine if homeschooling is the right choice for your child is to visit a learning center like the one here at Franklin and have your child see first-hand what a smaller school setting really looks and feels like.

Regardless of the decision you make for where to send your child in the next phase of his or her educational path, it always helps to get a second opinion. The Franklin team has decades of experience in helping families to make the decision that best suits a child’s profile. As we have seen over the years, no two students are alike.
