Is Homeschool for Me?

Many students like the idea of homeschooling, but wonder if it’s really for them. In reality, homeschooling grants valuable benefits to students. Here are just a few of the advantages of an online high school education:

1. Flexible Location

The most obvious advantage of online schooling is the flexibility it provides. When you take online classes, you can study when you want, where you want. You won’t need to lug around heavy textbooks or your computer, as you will have the luxury of staying comfortable and focused on the task at hand.

2. Direct Learning

Teachers, advocates, and career services will be help direct your learning. Traditional home school doesn’t have teachers or tutors to assist you, so this would take some of the pressure off of the parents who would be typically directing and schooling their children.

3. Quality Content

Homeschooling in elementary and middle school is easier given the easier content, but don’t you want to make sure you get the best education and learning in preparation for college? JMHS is regionally accredited and has all the tools in place to help prepare your student for their higher educational aspirations.

As you complete your online homeschooling, you develop skills that don’t come as easily in a public school setting or a generic homeschooling environment. You take charge of your own education, develop self-motivational skills, and build your own style and personality through your independent learning. When you take your studies seriously, you’ll learn the material more deeply as you study it at your own pace, and you have help from the professionals at JMHS, which makes you that much more prepared for a career or further education.
