So you’re being homeschooled. So were we! We understand that homeschooled students have many different types of experiences. Some experiences are awesome; others, less than awesome. Our desire is to ensure that every child is given a good education in a supportive and nurturing environment.
If you love being homeschooled
If you are being homeschooled and it is a positive experience for you, we are glad for you and applaud the efforts your parents are making. If you are being homeschooled in a healthy educational environment, we have no desire to remove that opportunity. We simply want you to be equipped for adulthood and to have a sense of agency in your education. This is your education. You deserve the best you can get. Enjoy your homeschooling experience and take the world by storm!

If you’re having a rough time
If you are being homeschooled and are not having a positive experience, our hearts go out to you. Please know that you are not alone. You may have a home environment that leaves you feeling uncomfortable, unsafe, or hurt. You may be receiving a deficient education or no education at all. These things are not okay, and they are not your fault. While we cannot just make your family’s problems go away (although we wish we could), we can give you our empathy and support. Hang in there. You can make it through this.
