Can’t Afford to Homeschool?

Perhaps we can help!  Let’s explore a few options:

  1. Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool is a free and complete online curriculum.  Showing you how to use freely available resources to complete all 12 grades, this curriculum was gradually developed by a homeschool mom, one year at a time, as she carved out an affordable yet effective way to homeschool her own kids at home!  Now she offers it to all other families – free of charge – to make it possible for them to homeschool, too. Think you can’t afford to homeschool? This option is absolutely free!
  1. Ambleside Online.  Ambleside Online, another free homeschool curriculum, uses Charlotte Mason’s classically-based principles to prepare children for a life of rich relationships with everything around them: God, humanity, and the natural world. AO’s detailed schedules, time-tested methods, and extensive teacher resources allow parents to focus effectively on the unique needs of each child. 
  1. Schoolhouse Teachers  You can homeschool ALL the children in your homeschool for only $179 per year (regular price $269.97) when you use CHEWV’s link! Schoolhouse Teachers is a self-paced online curriculum with hundreds of streaming videos, record-keeping tools, and even a transcript service. Check it out at the above link and then purchase through this link to save!  If you purchase during their Summer Shark Event (through August 31st), you’ll receive a free tote and collectible magazine edition. 

So there are three great options, two of them free. However, if you want to check out further curriculum options, click here for a previous article on this topic. 

And finally, there are a growing number of gratis resources available online. Although most of these are not already laid out for you by grade as are the three options mentioned above, they are invaluable resources if you take the time to gather what you need.  

For example, Hillsdale College now has a K-12 initiative. PragerUKids has a whole section for homeschoolers divided by grade level. YouTube also has resources easily found via the search engine. The latter will require some level of vetting for worldview; nevertheless, quality resources are there. Google searches will also provide printables, coloring pages, math drills, virtual field trip ideas, and much, much more. Last but not lease, search for creative educational and homeschool resources on Pinterest.  

If that sounds like too much work, then we’ll come round circle to the first three mentioned resources that spoon feed affordable curriculum. CHEWV’s free curriculum booklet explores many more curriculum options – without reference to cost. But if you have limited funds, be assured there’s no need for financial stress. If homeschooling is where the Lord is leading your family, please don’t let financial concerns deter you. Where God leads, He provides!  Hundreds of homeschool families can testify to that!
