Homeschooling Through a Private School

 
 
Many Florida homeschooling families prefer to enroll in a non-traditional private school. The benefits of homeschooling through a private school include:

  • Autonomy
  • Oversight by a private entity (often a homeschooling family)
  • No involvement with the school district
  • Freedom of materials and methods

Students who are homeschooled through a private school are not counted as “homeschoolers” by the state of Florida. Because Florida makes no distinction among types of private schools, children homeschooled in this fashion are legally considered to be private school students. As you saw in the chart contrasting public and private homeschooling, there can be both advantages and disadvantages to either approach, depending on your goals and philosophy. There are also differences in procedures since different laws govern private schools and home education programs.
