New to Homeschooling
The primary education years are very important. They not only shape your child's personality but shapes their attitude toward learning. Families choose to home school their children for many reasons. Many are looking for flexibility while others want to take more control over their child's education. Home school is becoming a more popular option as it gives families the flexibility and freedom to choose how they want their child to be educated.
There are many home school options available. Families who are looking to home school should do their research to find the best alternative for their families. For your convenience, MYS has put together a few homeschool organizations that provide curriculum for grades K through 12.
Home School Regulations
Below you will find information regarding homeschool laws. You will receive information on what you need to do to get started and gain an understanding what is needed for attendance, state testing requirements, and how to keep records for review, such as portfolios. It is always a good idea to familiarize yourself with the laws in your state since regulations change from state to state.
Motivated Young Scholars host annual community fairs where parents can come to learn about the various options available for their young learners. Our Back to School Community Fair is held each summer in August. Parents receive free books, food, resources and enjoy live entertainment.
During the course of the year, home-school learners are able to attend our center for extra-curricular activities, instructional support, workshops, classes, field trips, and social activities. Check out the event section for updates on parent meetings, classes, and social events.
