Reasons to Homeschool
An estimated 1.9 million children participate in homeschooling, and while a k-12 homeschool curriculum is popular, nearly half of homeschool students are in grades 9 through 12.‡ Studies show homeschooled children often out-perform their peers in public and private schools. In fact, one nationwide study shows homeschoolers scoring 37 percentile points above public school students on standardized tests.†
Whether your interest in homeschooling derives from concerns about traditional high school social pressures, inadequacies in the quality of instruction, the health needs of your child, or your desire to provide a non-traditional approach to education, James Madison High School online gives you the control to ignite your child's love for learning.
