Benefits of Accelerate Christian Home Schooling
Minimal Lesson Preparation
Our program is structured and pre-planned. This gives you confidence to start home education immediately.
Homeschooling Together Days
Parent Networking Groups
We are committed to setting up parent networking groups in both urban and regional areas.
Unlike the majority of Christian schools, we do not use secular humanistic textbooks. We recommended resources that are all written with a Biblical worldview.
About 30% of families who join Accelerate Christian Home Schooling report that their children have been bullied at school. Around 75% of these have daughters in years 7-10. Many parents have commented that after homeschooling for a few weeks, their child, who was mercilessly bullied, is happy and enjoys learning again.
We send out a set of diagnostic tests, which will identify the knowledge and skills of your child. Based on the results of these tests and previous school reports, and in consultation with you we will prescribe a suggested academic program for your approval.
We offer academic support to families so that they will have the confidence to homeschool. So whether your child is at early childhood, primary or secondary level, we will provide phone and internet support to help your child succeed.
Special Needs Children
We have a heart for special needs children and we welcome families who have children with learning difficulties. Every child has an individualised learning program which means that children will be learning at their own level and will not be able to compare themselves with others.
Universal Declaration of Human Rights
As a signatory nation to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Australian Government supports Article 26 para 3 which states: Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children. We support this statement which means that parents have a prior right to home educate using a pedagogy of their choice and resources of their choice.
What Parents Are Saying…
"I am so happy"
“Its the wonderful support you offer parents I am totally bowled over with! I have been watching the comments and every single mum has been saying only positive things. The phone calls, this FB group, regular home visits, organised activities, I really am impressed with the level of support you offer. You very obviously have a heart for homeschool families. May God continue to bless you and equip you!” Donna
Homeschooling Growth Statistics for Every Australian State and Territory
Home education is growing rapidly across every state and territory in Australia with a 70% increase nationally over a period of five years. Stuart Chapman, Coordinator of Home School Services for Southern Cross Educational Enterprises has been recording the year by year growth in home education and presented his findings at the recent Global Home Education Conference in Rio de Janeiro.
“I noticed two trends in the growth of home schooling. First, as home schooling becomes more accepted and mainstream, we see home educators represent a wider range of people. The stereotypes of large families who homeschool for religious reasons or unschoolers who have no set program, no longer apply. We are finding that people from a diverse range of backgrounds are joining. Many are commenting, ‘I never thought I would be saying this, but home schooling seems like a great option for me and I am going to give it a go.’
“Secondly, we are finding that the majority of people are home schooling for only 1-2 years, instead of 5-10 years as was the case 15 years ago. Many children are withdrawn from school because of bullying or due to a concern with academic progress. After home schooling for a couple of years, many are finding their child has the confidence to return to school with improved grades and self-esteem.” read more
