homeschooling right for you? (CLICK TO CLOSE)
Making the choice to homeschool is a unique and personal one, which requires
you to gather as much information as possible from a variety of sources
and perspectives. Homeschooling provides a safe, structured environment
where your child benefits from individual supervision, guidance, and a trusting
relationship with his or her teacher: you! Your home is considered a certified
state school with you as the teacher in charge of your child's education.
The feedback heard at Trent time and time again, is that the homeschooling
experience offers myriad opportunities and advantages not found in traditional
public or private school settings. Coursework can be adjusted to give you the freedom
to emphasize according to your child's individual needs. When
students have sufficient opportunities to “do”, learning becomes
much more meaningful and memorable. Consider how a simple visit to the grocery
store might provide hands-on, real-life practice for addition, subtraction,
estimation, or making change.
The homeschool environment provides children with the gift of time. Time
to develop critical thinking skills and to be in control of their learning.
Time to revisit concepts as often as necessary. Time to explore interests
in fine arts, music, or technology. And time to interact with the local
community and its citizens. These essential attributes are all building
blocks for becoming mature, confident, and responsible young adults, yet
are generally lacking in public or private school classrooms.
Your choice to homeschool your child is one of the most important decisions
you’ll ever make. With Trent, you’ll be partnering with a highly
qualified and dedicated staff that upholds a trusted school philosophy and
will be there to assist you every step of the way.
