    2. Secular Homeschooling

    You’ve landed here because you’re the curious type. I like that. You’ve heard the term - - maybe from friends, maybe on social media, or maybe via a search engine. Now, you want to really understand. What is secular homeschool?

    Secular homeschool - a definition from a secular homeschooler

    There are many definitions of the term "secular homeschooler." According to different opinions, a secular homeschooler is:


    • all homeschoolers except evangelical Christians
    • athiests who homeschool
    • Pagans who homeschool
    • someone who uses secular curriculum
    • a homeschooler who believes in evolution
    • an anti-religious homeschooler


    I'm going to step out on a limb and say that there are probably a little of each of those within the secular homeschool community, but they still don't give us a complete definition of what a secular homeschooler is. So how about I provide my own? You can take it, or leave it, of course, but here it is:

    A secular homeschooler is a person who, whether or not they ascribe to any particular religious faith, is not homeschooling for religious reasons, but because it is the best choice for themselves and their child(ren).

    I especially like this definition because it focuses on what secular homeschooling IS, instead of what it ISN'T. It says that we are simply a group of people who understand that educating our children at home is the best option for our families, and that everything else is just beside the point.

    Why the need to differentiate?

    You may be thinking that homeschoolers are already in a league ...

    Empower Your Kids to Learn Independently


    Are you looking for a literacy supplement that gives your children tools to take the lead in their own learning? VocabularySpellingCity was created to support homeschool families like yours.vsc-supergirl-games-jpg

    Kids can study and practice their vocabulary and spelling independently. It can be difficult for students to practice and learn new words on their own. Our activities give students immediate feedback, allowing them to work at their own pace.

    Words are presented phonetically and in context. Repeated exposures to words help your kids build vocabulary, which contributes to reading comprehension.

    More than 35 activities allow students to read, hear, speak, and write words, see them broken down into syllables, and learn how they are used in context.

    Make vocabulary and spelling your kids' superpowers!
