A+ Welcome


Welcome to PEIHomeSchool.com, a website for Island home educators...

Student with Apple

This website exists to help and support families!  This is a place on the Web designed especially for Prince Edward Island homeschooling families.  Its two core features are the province-wide Calendar of Events, and the Event Notices that members can view online, and also receive via e-mail.  Some parts of this site have restricted access, which explains why non-members will not be able to view the populated Calendar of Events or detailed Event Notices.  One must be a member to view the entire site; for more information on joining, please visit the "Membership" page under the Home tab on the menu to the left.

Feel free to contact us at any time with your feedback, suggestions, submissions or technical questions by writing to us.  We will respond to inquiries as soon as possible, however please keep in mind that we do the best we can with the time that we have available.  We also now have a Facebook page, so feel free to stop in, say hi, leave us a comment or submit a question. :-)

AUGUST 2014

Still much of the summer is left, but when August arrives most of us turn our thoughts to planning for the next academic year.  If you homeschool on PEI, you are free to use the provincial curriculum for your child's grade level; a $50 deposit when you pick up the materials is all that's required.  What most families do is purchase or borrow books/ curriculum developed for homeschoolers, and often by homeschooling families, since the variety and quality is amazing.  Check out our "Resources" page for a listing of where to purchase homeschool material. If the idea of homeschooling intrigues you, if your child is struggling to learn, or having a hard time with the status quo, there is no time like the present to try home education. Feel free to join the website to be kept informed of events and activities, and to connect with other families for support and encouragement.  Families in all kinds of situations have chose to home educate, it is so easy to adapt to your particular situation and the needs/ interests of your child; contact us and we will do our best to help! :-)

Note

- Our "Homeschool Open House" was held in June at the Royalty Centre in Charlottetown, and it was so nice to meet many families and reconnect with friends old and new!  We went over topics such as how to get started, provincial regulations, how to plan a course of study, and had some informal question/answer time. Brochures were available at the meeting but if you were unable to attend or would like some more information about home education on PEI, please contact us.

You DO Have A Choice...

If you or your child are not happy with how things are going on the educational front, you are welcomed to join this site and request more information (please read the Membership page and the requirements carefully, as not doing so could delay approval of your application).

The benefits of choosing home education are countless and profound. Homeschooling has been around for a long time, long before state-run institutions took over this task, and it has produced some of history's best leaders, scholars and thinkers.  It can and has been done by millions of families all over the world, in varied circumstances and countless ways - it can work for you too!
