Why we are homeschooling.... (Homeschool Mission Statement)

Since we have decided to start homeschooling the children next school year, many people have ask...Why?

Bottom line is there are many reasons why we have decided to homeschool but in a nut shell, I think our Homeschooling Mission Statement covers most of it. I think it is very important to keep a Mission Statement or Reason for homeschooling close by with you so that during those times you think, I can't do this anymore, you can look back at your reasons and know you can do this and you WANT to do this. Here is the Berryman Homeschool Mission Statement:

  • Christ Centered Education

  • Instill a LOVE for learning

  • Develop Christian Character

  • Become independent thinkers and learners

  • A safe secure place to learn and thrive, limiting outside pressures

  • Have a sense of self and unique strengths and gifts given by God

  • Be a blessing towards others

Do you have a homeschool mission statement that you keep to remind you WHY you started homeschooling? If so, share with us some things on your list...
