As you know I am always on the lookout for new and exciting freebies and ways to help homeschool families save money. One of our wonderful members from our Thrifty Homeschoolers Facebook Group, just shared a new website with me and now I want to pass it along to you.
If you’re looking for a complete curriculum to use online, Discovery K12 just might be the answer! As I looked around the site, I was impressed with the number of classes, subjects and the ease in which I could find what I was looking for on the site.
“Discovery K12 offers a traditional, Non-Common Core, secular, homeschool curriculum. Reading classic literature, writing essays, creating presentations, and conducting research are important aspects to the program. Discovery K12 is a flexible program that allows parents to use all or parts of the curriculum with full control over the instruction.”
Although we are a Christian family and this is a ‘secular’ program, I like that we could pick and choose what to use and still have complete control over what our children are being taught. While they have a recommended start date each year, you can choose when to start and take breaks to give you more flexibility.
This program is FREE to students, but if you choose to sign up as a teacher/parent, there are packages you can purchase. Overall, I think this would be a great program to use if you are just starting out and are feeling overwhelmed, have recently pulled your child from public school and need a quick solution, need a program that promotes more independent study from your child or live in a state that requires strict documentation for studies as well as attendance.
