6 Reasons Homeschool Families
Choose Online Curriculum

This is a guest blog post from Global Student Network.  Did you know that Global Student Network is part of’s FREEBIE FEBRUARY event?  You can check out their freebie here.

I have had the privilege of working with many amazing families:

Families whose jobs take them all over the world.

Families who live in Smalltown, USA looking for the very best academics for their children.

Families whose children are athletes, actors or musicians.

Missionary families.

Military families.

Families looking for a way to give their children an excellent education while upholding their faith and beliefs.

I have found that all these different families have one thing in common – they have chosen online homeschool curriculum. Why? There are a number of reasons.

It’s flexible. Online homeschool curriculum tailors itself to the needs of each student. They can find extra support or excel. Students work at their own pace according a schedule that the family determines.

It’s portable. As long as you have internet, you have school!

It’s comprehensive. Enrolling in a program means all your core subjects are covered. You can see exactly what objectives are taught and can ensure there are no gaps in student learning.

It’s extensive. Not only are core subjects covered well, but there are electives galore, foreign language study, higher level math and science – numerous options for students, right at their fingertips . . . literally!

It’s convenient for parents. No more lesson plans! After choosing the curriculum best for their student, parents can also choose how involved they would like to be. Some parents are very interactive with their students and their courseware; others are more hands off. Either way, parents can easily track student progress.

It’s effective. Interactive presentations and immediate feedback keep students engaged, motivated, and learning. Students become independent learners, taking ownership of their education.

Families who have chosen online curriculum have prepared their children for college, for career, for a lifetime of learning in the 21st century.

Wondering if online learning could be a good fit for your family? A great site to check out is Global Student Network lets you compare eight of the best online programs from one location. You can view demos, talk to specialists – find everything and everyone you need for every step of the way.

During the month of February, Global Student Network is offering FREE ACCESS TO STUDY ISLAND, a fun way for students to practice math and language arts skills.
