Why Homeschool Through High School
It's easy to believe that the High School years are the hardest ones to homeschool. After all, who remembers all of that Biology, Trigonometry, and how will foreign languages get learned? It was all so long ago, few of us remember what we learned!
But High School can actually be the best & easiest time to homeschool, and Huck is here to help!
When you use a hybrid approach to education, you are personalizing the experience to your child. They may take 1 or many classes at HuckleBerry. They may take 1-2 classes at a local Community College. They may use a tutor for subjects that are either particularly difficult or that they want a mentor. Online and in-person classes can be taken. You can teach some things yourself. Some learning can be done as an intern. Learning can be done anywhere, anytime.
An academic perspective
High School students are generally ready to learn more autonomously, and they find autonomy a huge motivational factor. It's important for students to learn to create and manage their schedule and their workload, and more importantly, to try new ideas. This is a crucial time to support self expression, and for students to develop interests that extend well beyond a standardized suite of classes and tests. Talk to any successful adult and they will have a similar story; they had to find and pour into their interests to find success. Why wait to do that as an adult, when it can start right now?
Homeschoolers have the advantage of TIME.
They are able to find and follow their passions while also learning to communicate well, understand the world around them, push themselves to learn a new language and more. Homeschoolers interact with all ages! At Huck, we're here to help you create and define your own story.
