How To Homeschool High School Australia Guide
For quite a few years now I’ve been contacted on numerous occasions and asked if I could write a high school home education guide. I have been reluctant to do so because I know there are many ways to home educate in the high school years. The way I have chosen to approach high school reflects my educational priorities and philosophy. My chosen resources are only a handful of the resources available to homeschoolers.
However, having helped many home educating parents I have found that having a concrete plan to begin with helps shape what homeschooling looks like and makes it doable. From that point, and with a little experience under their belt, a home educator can decide what works for them.
When we started homeschooling 15 years ago we only intended on doing it for a few years. Attempting home school high school was never part of my agenda however as I grew as a homeschool mother so did my homeschool friends and their kids, and I now have a bank of experiences and observations of what homeschool high school looks like.
In this guide I have tried to hold on to as much of my Charlotte Mason ideology but some of my Charlotte Mason methods have been replaced with more textbooky resources because I don’t know a suitable living book alternative for matching the Australian Curriculum or I have found that these textbooks have a good literary style with built-in instruction that fosters independence. This also reduces some of my workload.
Christian and secular resources are suggested.
I want to thank you for your website. I was at a complete loss as to what to do with my daughter and home-schooling as she is in Year 9. Your website is clear and easy to follow. I have followed your guide to a T. And when I had the mediator over yesterday, he was on a similar path to what you were saying. I am happy and my daughter is happy also.”–Elizabeth L, Western Australia
