The reason that many homeschool families choose to sign up under an umbrella school, instead of their local school system or state, is most often due to the "homeschool friendliness" of umbrella schools. Umbrella schools come in many sizes and shapes but most offer something extra for homeschoolers. For instance, homeschoolers may have the option to play sports, participate in field trips, have tutoring and more through an umbrella school.
It is important to note that before a school can be classified as an umbrella school it must meet the state requirements for education.
