"Bridgeway Academy was the best decision we ever made. My son has moved from a kid who hated school to one who is planning where he will go to college! Homeschooling has made all the difference and without Bridgeway I would never have taken that step."

Jessica’s 7 Keys to Homeschool Success

"I am so grateful for all the support you have given us through our tough times. I am very pleased and always tell others about you!" Trish

7 Keys to Homeschool Success

It’s no secret that homeschooling is one of the fastest growing educational options today. Parents like you have made the decision to take control of their child’s education because they realize that homeschooling offers the most personalized, flexible and in-depth learning available.

But like everything we do as parents, we can overcomplicate homeschooling and we can take it too lightly. We can also do it so well that we open doors for our children that they never would have walked through without the freedom of homeschooling.

Below are my top seven keys to homeschool success. My hope is that these keys will set the stage for an incredibly rewarding and successful homeschooling experience for you and your family!

Set realistic expectations

I have met many a homeschool mom who was upset because her 3-year-old was not reading yet. On the other hand, I have seen families who decide to homeschool with no direction or goals in mind. Children will follow your lead, so take the time to set clear and reasonable expectations. More on expectations

Don’t over-schedule

Limit yourself to one or two activities at a time and make schooling a priority. When you have more time to commit at home, schooling can become much more enjoyable! More Scheduling Tips

Don’t under-schedule

Kids need variety and opportunities to be with others their own age, so be sure to schedule extracurricular and social activities. There are many opportunities out there through local museums, art schools, YMCAs, support groups, colleges, churches and historical sites. More scheduling tips

Call for recess

Schedule regular breaks and take them whether you think you need them or not, and be sure to spend at least one break enjoying your kids! The temptation is to get everything done right away so that you can take the afternoon to explore creative arts, engage in physical fitness activities and socialize with other homeschool families.  Sounds great, right? But that approach can sometimes backfire.  More about recess

Stay organized

Putting your fingers on what you need, when you need it makes for a much more enjoyable homeschool experience. At the beginning of the school year, commit a day to organizing your homeschool room. Engage your children in the task by letting them decide how to organize their supplies. More on organization

Shift gears

On days when your kids just aren’t getting it or are overly distracted, try a different approach. And while it is important to have daily lesson plans and weekly goals, don’t let the curriculum drive the entire schedule every day. Observe your child and adapt your approach as necessary. More on shifting gears

Listen to your child

Part of the beauty of homeschooling is that it is a two-way street. You set up the boundaries and then allow your kids creative freedom within those boundaries. More on your child

To sum it up: Take some time to plan and adjust as necessary. You will know what is working and what is not working.  So when you hit those road blocks, call your Bridgeway Academy personal advisor and take advantage of the expertise and experience that you have at your fingertips.   We love hearing from you and are fully committed to your success, so please feel free to call us anytime at 800-863-1474.
