Teacher Homeschool ID Card

You are homeschooling! Show off your title as a homeschool teacher proudly. In fact, your homeschool ID card can unlock some untapped homeschooling powers that you might not have known you have! Check out these possible homeschool teacher power perks.

  • Homeschool Discounts:  Did you know that different participating locations offer discounted items? From time to time, you will find places that are willing to help homeschoolers with the cost of homeschooling. So, while you are out and about shopping for homeschool items, ask the customer service desk if they provide any discounts. Specifically, it is beneficial to ask at bookstores, art stores, and office supply stores as these stores are the most common types to offer homeschool discounts.

    • Barnes & Noble
    • Books-A-Million
    • Dell Computers For Students
    • Jo-Ann’s Fabrics & Crafts
    • Michaels
    • Staples

Ultimately, it never hurts to ask, especially if you can possibly save money!


  • Proof of Homeschooling: If you need to show you are homeschooling, a homeschool ID might help with that. Not all places that ask for proof will count these, but it can make life easier for those that do!

Child ID Card

A teacher ID, sure, but what about a student ID? Are there any reasons to make your homeschool student’s an ID card? Yes, in addition to teacher cards, making your homeschooler their own ID can be very useful!

  • Student Discounts: The homeschool teacher isn’t the only one who can get discounts. Likewise, some locations will provide student deals on items. There may also be student entertainment discounts for plays and concerts. And, most commonly, cheaper admission to things like sporting events, zoos, theme parks, and learning centers for homeschoolers. If you see a student pricing sign, that is your cue to show your homeschool student’s ID and ask!


  • Photo ID: There might be a few times when your younger homeschoolers need an ID card but don’t have a license yet. If you include a picture on your homeschool ID, some locations will also use this as a photo child ID.


  • For Fun: Having an ID can be just for fun. It is a keepsake of your homeschool year that your homeschoolers can look back fondly on and show to their friends.
