How American Homeschoolers Measure Up

Occasionally, I run into new homeschoolers who worry that they won’t be able to do it “right”, and I remember feeling that very same way when I started.

I hope I can encourage as many homeschoolers as possible that there is no one “right” way to do it, and that yes, you CAN homeschool your child all the way through graduation.

I just dropped off my oldest child at college [2]. The child who received a full academic college scholarship. The child who made perfect scores on the reading and writing portions of the ACT. The child who has never been in a traditional classroom [3].

We didn’t do it perfectly. We had plenty of bumpy spots and mistakes, but we kept plugging along and made it through, and I think I would call our first homeschool graduate a success!

The chart below speaks VOLUMES, and I hope it encourages you to stay the course in your homeschool journey.

And for those who wonder why most homeschoolers don’t want to bow to government regulation [4], look over this graphic carefully. We seem to be doing just fine on our own.
