Take a good look at the reasons why homeschooling can help today's kids thrive

Homeschool Rising is a guide for anyone interested in homeschooling their children, regardless of background. It busts through the myths surrounding homeschooling, reveals the failures of our current school system, and demonstrates how home education and loving, motivated parents can provide a solution for students and families everywhere.

There are many assumptions made about homeschooling--that the child will be "socially awkward" due to lack of social interaction, that parents are not equipped to educate their children, that homeschooling is only for White, Christian, middle-class parents, and more. In Homeschool Rising, educator Christy-Faith offers insights from more than 20 years in the field and her experience working with thousands of students to debunk these myths and misconceptions.

The truth is, homeschooling sets today's students up for success in a way that traditional schooling no longer can. This authoritative yet casual and accessible guide provides parents the tools, courage, and knowledge to opt out of the school system and take charge of their children's education.

  • Clear up the confusion and misconception surrounding homeschooling
  • See why homeschooling is a great option for kids of any race, religion, and background
  • Gain the knowledge you need to start your kids off on the right foot with homeschooling
  • Make sure your homeschooled kids are getting the support they need academically and socially

New and experienced homeschoolers looking for support, as well as educators, psychologists, and others who work with homeschooled children, will love the clear, evidence-backed, and conversational information in Homeschool Rising.
