Home schooling has become more and more common in the US and the state of Texas. While Texas does have a compulsory school attendance law, besides attendance in Texas, the regulations are relaxed and make it easy for parents to choose to home school their children. New Beginnings Christian Academy offers a broad variety of home schooling options. Whether you seek a brick and mortar location or from the comfort of your own home, we can provide you with exactly what you are looking for. There are many resources for homeschooling including full online homeschool curriculum, but it can sometimes be difficult to know for certain if you have found the “right one”.
In Texas, the requirements are simple: withdraw your child from school (if they are already attending) and choose a curriculum that includes grammar, spelling, reading, math, and good citizenship. There are no requirements for testing or attendance reporting. The state has no regulation at all on home schooling students. It is completely private and out of the jurisdiction of public schools. While this gives you free reign of your child’s education, it may be difficult and overwhelming for parents to know if they are teaching their child what they need to know. Proven, online programs can simplify that daunting task. New Beginnings Christian Academy provides curriculums that exceed all of the requirements of the state of Texas and we also provide options for learning with others and online.
There are many benefits to home schooling such as being completely in control of your child’s education and their learning environment. Many parents feel it is safer to keep their children home. Others feel they can provide a better, one-on-one education that better fits their child’s individual interests and needs. Not all children are the same or learn the same and it is difficult for teachers in a public-school setting to provide individualized education to all of their students at an effective level.
By choosing to home school, you are able to spend more time with your child and build and grow your relationship and provide special attention to the subject matter that is more challenging. You are able to go at the pace of your child and help him or her to not feel rushed or overwhelmed with trying to keep up with a class. Or maybe your child is more advanced than his/her class and is not feeling challenged enough! With home schooling you are able to introduce more challenging subject matter to ensure your child feels sufficiently challenged and lessen the risk of boredom and misbehavior.
Other advantages to home schooling include being able to have a more flexible schedule which can allow for more family time or extra-curricular activities such as volunteering or even a part-time job for your student! You are able to nurture your child and work one-on-one to meet their needs. You can set goals and plans for meeting those goals with your child in mind.
While all of these benefits make it seem like a simple decision to home school, most parents find the most daunting task to be choosing the curriculum. At NBCA we are able to assist with that task and let you enjoy the fun parts of home schooling. Our curriculums exceed state requirements. You can also be sure your child receives a quality education you can be proud of. Your child will receive a fully recognized and accredited diploma to validate their education upon graduation.
