What is homeschooling?

Homeschooling is definitely NOT simply “school at home” ‒  it’s much more than that.  At ACPEQ we believe homeschooling is a calling where each family weaves life moments into an educational experience through their worldview.  From practicing fractions while baking cookies to learning history through an immersive family holiday, homeschooling provides children an unparalleled opportunity to learn in creative ways that cater to their specific passions and needs.  While the basic skills of math, reading and writing are taught, homeschooling brings families together.  Operating on a schedule that works well with Mom and Dad’s livelihood, parents can be more involved in the nuturing of their child’s character and development of life skills.  Relationships are strengthened and problems are worked out together.  In short, homeschooling is a way of life.
