Getting Started Roadmap for Homeschooling

Achieving Your Educational Goals from Day One

Starting a homeschooling adventure requires the initial establishment of clear goals to attain the desired results. This three-part resource acts as a valuable guide, available at no cost, to effectively initiate your homeschool program. It underscores the importance of maintaining a consistent educational path. In pursuit of this mission, we are actively crafting various roadmap initiatives that will be introduced gradually on PIE's website in the upcoming months.

Let's begin by acknowledging that a K-12 homeschool program for a single child represents a substantial, long-term commitment. Spanning 2,340 compulsory days, it involves the creation of transcripts, numerous progress reports, detailed course descriptions, and potentially thousands of lesson plans. Undoubtedly, this endeavor demands substantial effort from both the parent and the child, and without thoughtful planning, it can result in homeschool burnout.

It's no secret that more parents would choose homeschooling if it were a simpler process. So, what makes homeschooling such a challenging undertaking? And how can we streamline the process? This section delves into these critical questions.

This resource provides practical insights into developing a comprehensive educational program for your child that enhances academic performance and encourages socialization that aligns with your family's dynamics. Additionally, it offers guidance on optimizing your child's time to pave the way for future college and career opportunities. Furthermore, it encourages you to formulate a vision and establish smart goals based on your Philosophy of Education, as a well-structured, comprehensive educational program is the cornerstone of achieving success.

We would like to extend a warm welcome to you from PIE's Orientation and guide you to the available navigation support.
