Can An Online Homeschool Really Take Care Of Everything?

A few weeks ago, I was asked a question by a new to homeschooling family . The more I thought about it, the more I realized I have the same question.

Can An Online Homeschool Really Take Care Of Everything?

As my son gets closer and closer to the end of his high school years (moment of silence for his mom, please) I find myself looking at every option possible to best prepare him for his post-secondary life.

Although in the past, he has been mostly interested in pursuing a few trade school options, this semester has brought an increased interest in researching four year college options – especially online college options.

In an effort to help him gain more of an understanding of what online school is really like, I also found myself wondering about this option for my youngest. 

Both of my children respond very well to video based learning. They both navigate a computer with a confidence and speed that makes their mom jealous.

They both have done well with one or two online classes in the past.

What would it be like to have an online option that really did cover everything?

Please know, although I was compensated for my time in writing this post, I only share options that I think will genuinely work for my family. This is in the hopes they may work for yours as well. 

Is Personalized Learning An Option In An Online Homeschool?

My main concern in researching different online programs, was finding something that would allow an individualized, even interest-led (if at all possible) approach.

Then I discovered

Although there are thousands of course options available, makes it incredibly easy to find the courses you are looking for. You can sort by grade level, subject, and even goals like “transferable credit” and “test prep.”

Is it possible to individualize learning online? It is on They have a custom course creator, where you can easily design your own course, complete with it’s own name, added chapters and lessons you personally select for your child’s learning needs.

This includes teacher resources, and all subject material necessary for 3rd – 12th grade learning. (They even have Test Prep and Professional Development for the years beyond our homeschooling journey.)
