    2. Secular Homeschooling
    what-secular-homeschool-png



    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 ...

    Groovymom, that is terrific. Sometimes it's a long, long slog, but I'm glad you were able to step back and see the positives as well.

    Hi Liz! Welcome to SHS. It think it's great that we're starting to get homeschooling parents here who were homeschooled themselves. It offers us yet another perspective.
