What You Need To Know About the Christian Homeschool Curriculum
Sorting through a mountain of reviews is a tedious and time-consuming task. Not to worry—you can find some of the best and most popular Christian homeschool curriculums in this easy-to-read guide.
You already know you want to teach your children from a Christian standpoint, but what about other decisions important for a beginner in homeschooling? Answering the following questions can help you decide on your goals:
- Do I want my child to meet higher academic standards?
- Can I set aside two to four hours each day for teaching?
- Am I skilled enough to teach certain subjects?
- What homeschooling method do I want to use?
- Do I want to join a homeschool group in my area?
Take note that if you lack knowledge in certain subjects or don’t have time to homeschool your child each day, you can leave it to someone else in most states. You can either hire a tutor or join a co-op Christian homeschool group.
There’s no right age or right time to start homeschooling your children, but your journey will look completely different if you start homeschooling a four-year-old child and if you take a ninth-grader out of public school to homeschool.
In case your kid is of school age, you can start homeschooling even in the middle of the school year.
Joining a religious homeschool group is also an option and often an excellent idea because you'll probably need some assistance and guidance as a beginner.

You don’t need to be a certified teacher to be able to homeschool your child, but many states require that you have a high school diploma or GED. In some states, you’ll have to be overseen by a certified teacher.
