Finishing Strong – Homeschooling Middle & High School #115

Our weekly link-up, Finishing Strong, is all about homeschooling middle school or high school. Every Wednesday we, along with our friends, Heather from Blog She Wrote, Eva from EvaVarga, and Heidi from Starts at Eight host it.

We love bringing families together and giving everyone a place to share their experiences, get their questions answered, and find support they need. Keep reading to see what others who are homeschooling older kids have shared with us.

4. Homeschool is Not School at Home, Except When It Is by Practical, By Default

So many families struggle with this when they start homeschooling. Instead of adopting a homeschooling mindset and schedule, parents instead turn to what they know, school at home. Some keep this philosophy throughout their homeschooling journey, but others adopt an individualized approach. Are you a “school at home” family?

I love homeschooling! Learning is a way of life for our family. Most days you will find us exploring our Central Florida community, having fun while learning. I am constantly looking for new and interactive ways to engage my older children.
