September 10, 2010, Newsletter Issue #347: Homeschooling Costs

Tip of the Week

Homeschooling can cost anywhere from $0 to $2,500 per year. A family can create an entire curriculum from materials available free online and from the local library. (Online schools do charge a fee.) Cost depends on your philosophy.

If you use a boxed curriculum, you can purchase a very nice one for as little as $300 per year, with optional correspondence-teacher review services for somewhere near $200-$500. You can spend as much as $2500 per year in the boxed curriculum, this cost includes an advisory teaching service, networking, private "networked" park days, field trips, resource libraries, and many other extracurricular resources.

Thanks so much for reading the the Homeschool Tips Newsletter.

The new 2006-2007 Sonlight catalog is hot off the presses! In addition to new educational resources, we've also made some significant improvements to our curriculum, such as expanded flexibility in Reader choices for Levels K through 2.

The catalog also provides several articles with helpful homeschool tips. For example, check out the "Top Ten Goals" article (pp. 146-147) which can help you think through your personal philosophy when it comes to homeschooling. And "Why we use certain books that some homeschoolers won't touch" (pp. 144-145), that gets into some pretty important issues about the content of books. And you won’t want to miss “27 Reasons NOT to Buy Sonlight”—a perennial favorite (beginning on page 148).
