Homeschooling Approaches

Although every homeschool is unique, certain homeschooling “styles” have become very popular. Most homeschoolers do not follow one style or method exactly. Instead, they select the ideas and suggestions that fit their family and eventually end up with a method all their own. It may take some time to develop your own routine and you may discover that you start out more structured in the beginning and become more flexible and relaxed as time goes on. The following are the most popular homeschooling styles.

“Relaxed” or “Eclectic” Homeschooling
