Is 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.
