How to Graduate High School Early with Online Courses

how to graduate high school early, multiple students graduating

Graduating from high school early in the public school system is almost unheard of. There is a strict curriculum, and not many students can steer too far away from the set number of credits and state public school requirements. Entering into the homeschooling arena, parents begin to drift from the public school mindset and embrace the freedom that homeschooling allows for their child’s education. An option available to homeschoolers is the opportunity to graduate high school early.  Here are tried and true options on how to graduate high school early with online courses. You may find yourself having discussions with your homeschooling students about the possibility of graduating high school early. Most parents’ first response is a plain, “No.”  We can all agree that the “No” comes from many legitimate places. When parents think of graduating their children early, a flurry of thoughts rush to mind. Some parents may feel homeschooling is already chaotic, therefore getting a student to complete their requirements in less time may seem too overwhelming – even impossible.  If your student is already struggling but wants to finish school early, you may feel like you have failed. You may feel like they are just being lazy […]

University students studying on campus, online community resources

For students who complete their studies online, it is important to be part of a community. Seeing others face-to-face is a valuable way to increase a student’s engagement with their studies. Plus, interaction with others with online community resources is a great way to make school feel less like work. Thankfully, the internet offers a wealth of online community resources for online students. Now, it is possible for students to get personable interaction at home or out of the house. Here are some of the online community resources you can find to help liven your online learning experience. Learn music and share your skills with others Music is a big part of many homeschools. This is for good reason, too. Learning a musical instrument or improvisation equips students with valuable skills and teaches a disciplined work ethic. Not to mention, it’s fun! Practicing and honing one’s skills through an online course makes this an excellent online community resource that provides a multitude of benefits for students. Even a fairly basic instrument such as the recorder instills general music principles that can be transferred to other instruments. With musical skills, students can share their music at family gatherings. Students might even volunteer […]

3 Benefits to Online English Courses

Online english courses make high school easy for homeschool students

Online English courses are an outstanding option to improve written English language skills. In fact, learning English online offers three distinct advantages over more mainstream educational opportunities.  First, online English classes give you an opportunity to narrow your focus on a specific area of study. The study of a language encompasses a pretty broad spectrum of subjects, and it can be difficult to determine, let alone locate, the sort of English learning you need. Are you looking for grammar, literature, or composition? Are you looking to learn essay writing, research writing, or commercial writing? Are you looking for education on spoken English, or will you need to learn how to diagram a sentence? Sometimes, “English” courses in a more mainstream educational setting try to cover so much, that they don’t really teach you anything. Here’s where online English courses, like those offered on Luma Learn, can help you.  Luma Learn online English courses are very specific. There is one class for public speaking specifically and a separate class for high school literature and composition – and one for research writing and one on writing for publication! Sometimes general education courses can be a little lacking in focus to enable your […]

Online History Classes Bring History Alive

Online History Classes Bring History Alive

I love history! Perhaps more than any other subject, history truly is alive. I can hear a bunch of you out there scoffing. To many of us, history is one of the most boring subjects we will ever take. We are all familiar with the pointless drudgery of the infamous “names and dates.” But that’s just my point, no one is bored by history, but lots of people are bored by history class. That is where online history classes can come in to bring it all back to life! That is actually one reason why any history class should be alive: because history – real history – has already lived. That is what a good history teacher does – bring history back to life. History is a compilation of true events: things that actually happened, lives that were really lived, choices that had to be made, battles that somebody fought, and miracles God actually brought about. History is a true story. There is nothing better. Online History Courses Bring History to Life I love the idea of pursuing online history classes specifically because they can bring history alive in a way that may not be available even through the best […]

Online Science Courses Offer Educational Flexibility


Online science courses are a great place to go to find the flexibility you need to maximize your child’s educational opportunities. If you’ve ever listened to a homeschooler explain why they decided to make such a “weird” choice in education, you’ve no doubt heard a pitch about the flexibility homeschool offers. Your friend wasn’t lying: homeschooling does indeed offer flexibility far beyond anything conventional schooling can offer. As a parent, you are uniquely positioned to know your child’s specific educational needs and strengths, not to mention personality traits and social and emotional history. Even if you are not personally playing the part of educator – as many homeschool parents do – you are supervising and personalizing your child’s educational path with nothing but the needs of your child and family in mind. Because you do not have to consider an entire class (or directives from an educational board, curriculum, or government), you can create a plan that is best for that child specifically. This powerful advantage is made obvious in science class. Even the flexibility of scheduling, as simple as it sounds, creates a distinct advantage. Think of your own history in conventional schooling, or the stories you hear from […]

Three Benefits to Choosing Online Math Courses

High school online math courses

Math. Unless you are one of those blessed, remarkable, miraculous few who enjoy and are good at it, math may be one of the single greatest fears of homeschooling parents everywhere. These fears are so common that online math courses are growing in popularity. “I was fine with math until they added letters!” “I barely survived it in school, how in the world am I supposed to teach it?” “Math?!?! I finished my last math class ten years ago! There is no way I can remember it now! And besides . . . [sob] I hate math!!!!” Any of this sound familiar? As I face the transition from lifelong homeschool student to a homeschool parent myself, these are fears that haunt the deepest recess of my most troubled dreams. Despite all our principled furor about how “every parent is qualified to homeschool their child!” many of us are downright afraid to try it with mathematics. Thankfully, there are a wealth of resources available to you online that can not only get your kids through but help them thrive. With that in mind, let’s look at my favorite online learning hub – Luma Learn! You can find online math classes at Luma […]
