Important Considerations for Homeschooling Success

Create a Study Plan

When homeschooling in New Hampshire, it is important to establish a clean environment where distractions are limited for your child to study on a regular schedule.  Study routines are valuable for learning discipline. They also help your child stay on track with weekly, monthly and yearly academic goals. Create a schedule and expect your child to stick to it. Modify the schedule when necessary to help your child stay challenged while still able to achieve your expectations.

Build Foundational Knowledge

As your child progresses in their studies, addressing gaps in their foundational knowledge will be crucial to their future success.  For example, if your child struggles with basic math, it may become nearly impossible for them to master more advanced math concepts until they get help with their basic math challenges.  In Acellus courses, Vectored Instruction automatically takes into account a student’s existing knowledge gaps and provides targeted interventions to bridge those gaps.  If a student lacks the foundational understanding required for the new concept, the system automatically provides relevant remedial content before proceeding further.

It is crucial that students achieve early success with online learning so that their confidence will grow. Sometimes it may be necessary to place your child into an earlier course so they can begin experiencing success before they are ready to start moving forward with their learning.

You should keep thorough records of your child’s education. This will be beneficial when they apply for colleges or jobs after high school. Power Homeschool’s online parent portal automatically makes it easy to track progress, download coursework examples, attendance, and keep transcripts of classes taken.

It is also a good idea to get student ID cards and parent/teacher ID cards. Many retailers and venues offer teacher or student discounts that can be claimed by showing ID cards. A professional student ID card with a good quality identification photo included is also an good way to show that your student is enrolled is a reputable homeschool program.



Homeschool Support & Groups in New Hampshire

In New Hampshire, homeschoolers have access to various support groups and resources that help enhance the homeschooling process. Homeschooling associations are usually statewide organizations that protect the homeschooling rights in the state as well as provide events, resources, news, and more!  

New Hampshire has multiple homeschool associations: New Hampshire Homeschooling Coalition (NHHC) and Granite State Home Educators (GSHE).

In addition to statewide associations, homeschool support groups and co-ops connect homeschoolers to other families in their local area. Homeschool support groups allow parents to share and receive advice, tips, and homeschooling experiences, as well as connect students with peers and allow them to socialize. Homeschool co-ops are similar to support groups, but they are more academic-focused, allowing homeschoolers to learn alongside their peers in group settings. There are a wide variety of groups, such as religious homeschool co-ops or ones focused on certain areas of study such as STEM. Whatever your family is looking for, you are sure to find a group that fits your needs.

Usually, homeschool support groups and co-ops have Facebook pages or websites, making them easy to find with a few simple searches. The following are a few examples of the homeschool support groups available in New Hampshire:
