Homeschool Sneak Peek

Try Homeschooling During the Summer or Winter School Break!

So you’re thinking about starting to homeschool next year, but you’re still not sure. How about taking a sneak peek at homeschooling during the winter or summer break to help you make the decision?

Take a Sneak Peek! Try homeschooling this summer.

What Is a Homeschool Sneak Peek?

Glad you asked! It’s a trial during the school break to help you get a feel for homeschooling without the worry of doing it for real. If you already help your student with homework, you already have the skills you need to homeschool!

 Choose one subject or topic to do during the winter break or over the summer.

Lots of options are available from which to choose:

  • Catch-up or refresh—When your child is behind in a subject or wants to improve skills, choose that one.
  • Head-start for next year—Choose something you want to work on ahead of time that will help whether you choose to homeschool or not.
  • Off the typical academic track—Find a topic your student likes but isn’t typically offered in public school.
  • Whatever you and your student find and want to try!

Here are some ideas for simple homeschool mini-mesters!

  • Study a subject to improve skills.
  • Investigate a topic not covered in school.
  • Try a multi-level history or science course with all of your children.
  • Read lots of great books in a literature-based course.

It’s a Stress-Free, Fail-Proof, and Fun Trial!

All you have to lose is some time and the cost of the homeschool curriculum for your homeschool preview adventure.

  • If your children have been in public school, you have an advantage—They’re already used to schedules and the school routine.
  • If they want you to teach them at home, they are ready, willing and able to get started.
  • At the worst, your children will have learned something over the break.
  • You will probably learn you are far more capable of teaching than you thought.
  • It will be an adventure, for sure.
