How to Teach at Home
You’ve decided to homeschool and are unsure of where to start. You don’t even know what to ask.
So, let’s get a few common questions out of the way first:
Is it legal to homeschool?
Yes. You don’t have to ask permission nor be approved to homeschool. You DO need to notify your child’s former school of your choice, and you do need to inform the state in which you reside of your intent to homeschool. Each state has different requirements beyond that. And they probably change over the years, but your local department of eduction will have confusing standards posted for you to bumble your way through! But you can do it - and ask here. We can help point you in the right direction, depending on where you live!
For Louisiana - you can register for Home Study or Nonpublic Not Seeking State Approval. Go for the latter unless you have a junior or senior in high school, as it's the least restrictive. The Home Study option is required if you'd like TOPS funding for college. I'll detail all of that in a later post!
And, if you're looking for info about some other state - click "state standards" in the category to the right and we may have what you need!

It’s a new day. You wake up feeling groggy and out of it, reach your hand towards the side table to grab your…. wait WHERE’S MY PHONE? *cue panic*
You are walking towards the metro (post covid19 obviously), life feels great because you even get a seat, you reach out to your pockets to grab your… WHERE’S MY PHONE? *cue panic*
Irrespective of age, gender, ethnicity, career or economic status we are all connected by one common factor which is our smartphones. From the minute we wake up till the moment our day ends, our phone is a staple part of it all. Our social life through DMs, Whatsapp, Tinder and our business life through calls, notes, last-minute presentation slides; you name it and your phone has got it.
