Many families believe that a spiritual foundation is key to a moral education. If this describes your family's philosophy, a multitude of curricula and materials are available for your faith-based homeschool. You may use a traditional curriculum similar to the one taught in public schools, such as the suggestions noted above, and add a study unit based on your family's religious beliefs. Or you may prefer that each subject area of the curriculum incorporates your family's spiritual beliefs.
A science curriculum, for example, may be secular and focus more on an evolutionary theory, while a faith-based science curriculum may incorporate a creationist point of view. These can be important points for families to consider when purchasing curriculum and supplemental books.
Homeschool curriculums and books are available for nearly every religious belief and culture. From Catholic to Islamic, Jewish, Latter-Day Saints, or Native American, you'll be able to find resources to suit your family's homeschool style.
Christian Homeschool Choices
If you plan to incorporate Christian doctrines into your homeschool, you'll have a multitude of curricula and materials to choose from. Many of the Christian correspondence schools and curriculum companies offer testing services, evaluations, grading, record keeping, and diplomas. You often have the choice of teacher assistance to help guide you through the school year, or you can be in charge of the program yourself, allowing for more flexibility.
