SummaryFamilies homeschool for the better education and to strengthen family ties but chief among the reasons may be keeping God at the center of their lives.
To Grow Stronger as a Family
Homeschooling with Seton Home Study School is a major blessing to our family. It has allowed us the freedom to grow stronger as a family and deepen our knowledge and love for our Catholic Faith. Our children appreciate the chances homeschooling provides them for their hobbies after their academic work is done. – Jerry and Abigail Ahrens July-August 2019
For Flexibility and Academic Growth
We started homeschooling because of Sophia’s health issues. We chose Seton because of the solid Catholic values and amazing curriculum. We continue to homeschool because of the flexibility and how much she’s grown academically. – Susan von Stultz May-June 2019
To Focus on Real Learning
We homeschool so that my SPD son can focus on real learning and not just how to manage his symptoms.
We also love that our children’s physical and mental well-being is improved from working in natural light and fresh air. In fact, our entire State has become their classroom, filled with museums, parks, and travel. – Elizabeth Meyer March-April 2019
To Develop a Love for Learning
A lot of people ask: why do we homeschool? Is it the academics? Faith? Values? Safety? Yes, it is all of these, but most importantly, it is teaching our children “how” to learn and to develop a love for it. The children are safe and secure…which leads to confidence and an eagerness to learn. – Jennifer Bravata January-February 2019
To Keep God in Our School
When our youngest, Cash, attended kindergarten at a public school, he struggled with the idea of not sharing what he knew about God. One time he came home and asked, “Why can’t I talk about Advent in school, Mommy?”
What I love most about homeschooling is the opportunity to teach Cash about God along with all of the other subjects. – Veronica Wilson November-December 2018
To Make Time for God and Family
We homeschool to build better relationships with God and family. To do that, one must have time which homeschooling provides us. I closely guard the white space in my calendar to afford my children the opportunity to be children for as long as possible. – Mary Ellen Barrett September-October 2018
To Keep Jesus at the Center of our Lives
I was homeschooled growing up, and I want to pass this treasured experience to my children.
Growing up, we moved at our own pace, went to daily mass, and learned to maintain a household full of small children. We learned to be flexible and adaptable all the while finding joy. We also had pajama day! Most of all, Jesus and His Catholic Church were at the center of our lives. – Carissa Braun July-August, 2018
To Trust in God’s Schedule
Last week my four-year-old daughter asked me, “Mom, can you teach me how to read?” I smiled and said, “Yes.” I know I can, because He will help me. Maybe she’ll learn quickly, maybe it’ll be a long arduous struggle over years. It doesn’t matter. She’ll learn. And she’ll learn on God’s schedule, not mine. His is the best schedule to ensure our path to heaven. – Rebekah Morse May-June, 2018
For the High-Quality Education
I am a Seton graduate, and my daughter Kristen continues our Seton legacy! We love the high-quality education, flexibility, efficiency, accreditation, and Catholic identity that Seton provides. On a recent road trip, we stopped by the Seton office for a tour and had the honor of meeting Dr. Clark. – Nicole Early April, 2018Here’s the place to share
