Elementary to Graduation: 3 Reasons to Stay with the Same Online School

by Kristen White Blogger
Quality education starts with the best elementary curriculum where the basic subjects are taught, laying the foundation for the student to easily move on to the next grade. When looking at online homeschool programs it is important to look at what is offered for your child’s current grade and also what the school offers at the next levels. A school that only goes to 8th-grade forces the student to ‘switch’ schools and the parents have to start the school search all over again.

More importantly, it puts the student at a possible disadvantage because they have to change to a new curriculum which may operate at a different pace and perspective than what they have been used to.  Possibilities include having a gap in the old and new information or relearning concepts that they already know. Staying with the same program throughout their homeschool journey ensures continuity of material and resources, thereby making it easier to follow and keep up with year by year. Whether you decide to homeschool  2nd grade, or when they enter middle school, always look forward and ask questions to assure a smooth transition from year to year.

Online Christian high schools are designed to set teenagers up for success by imparting valuable skills and knowledge they need to graduate and move forward into college or a career. If a change has to be made, then high school is the time to do it because this is where grades and credits are critical to the future. One of the reasons for entering high school is an optimum time to make a change is because the information and expectations are often higher no matter what program the student is on.  However, switching programs during high school should be avoided if possible. 
 
High schools can vary in the courses they offer, electives, dual enrollment opportunities, teacher instruction, and portal resources so parents need to do the research beforehand and find the best education option for their teenager. Another reason staying with the same accredited program is recommended is the relationship the family and school build together where there is an investment in helping the student find their unique path to success. Just as in a traditional school, teachers and students build a bond over the various courses and interactions giving students a resource they can access long-distance for help or getting basic questions answered. This is the same way that online college classes work and adequately prepares high school graduates for higher education in their day-to-day activities.

Every family is different in when they make the decision to homeschool, whether they choose to go through graduation with this approach or if the student only utilizes it for a short period of time. The accredited program with the best curriculum and long-term plan is the right choice every time so that parents know their child is receiving a great education that will help them be successful and allow them to do what they want in the future.
