The Ultimate List of
Online Courses for Homeschooling

The online class options for homeschooling have grown exponentially over the past few years. When I started homeschooling my oldest daughter, there were very few options for digital curriculum. We had a collection of CD-ROM games and access to a handful of online lessons. Now, the choices for an online home education are endless.

Benefits of Homeschooling with Online Courses

There are many advantages to using online courses for your homeschooling.

Homeschooling parents don't need to take on all the responsibility and tasks of “teacher”.

Instead, you can be a “guide” for your child. You can consider your child's interests and needs as choose the right online courses for him. And you will make sure they attend classes and get the necessary work done. But you don't need to plan lessons or assess your child's progress.

Online courses allow for a flexible lifestyle.

With web-based course, your child can learn anywhere you have an internet connection. If you're a family that's always on the go, there's no need to haul around a bunch of homeschool materials. And, with self-paced classes, your child can learn on his schedule, at his pace.

Your children are taught by experts.

Online course creators teach what they know and love. Often times, they are experienced classroom teachers with notable credentials. They are more knowledgeable than us homeschool parents who are educating multiple children, trying to fit the educational needs of each. Online instructors are normally accessible if your child needs information clarified (unlike the publisher of a printed textbook or workbook).

 Students are using an education format that they will encounter in the future.

Online learning is the wave of the future, both in higher education and corporate training. As your homeschooler takes online classes, they are learning HOW to learn online. They experience the process of logging into classrooms, submitting assignments, communicating with online instructors, and collaborating with other students.

Things to Consider When Searching for Online Homeschooling Courses

A simple Google search for “online homeschool course” will return an overwhelming amount of choices, requiring you to sift through and find the class that fits your family's unique needs.

Aspects you'll need to consider are:

  • What academic subjects does the course cover?
  • What grade level is the course intended for?
  • Is this an all-in-one course or can you choose individual courses for a more flexible education?
  • Are classes live (at a set time or day) or self-paced (you can take at anytime)?
  • How much does the course cost?
  • How long do you have access?
  • What assessment tools are included? Do parents receive reports or do they need to keep track of progress?

Well, have no fear because I've done most of that research for you and compiled “The Ultimate List of Online Courses for Homeschooling”. I've identified 150+ websites that offer online courses. I've categorized them by which subjects and grade level courses are offered, plus whether classes are live or self-paced.
