About Us

  • The Life Without School Blog is an on-line publication and blogging community. We homeschool. We unschool. We live our lives without school.

About Our Blogs

  • We support life without school, diversity of perspective, choice, the family and the child. No one blog, not even this LWOS blog, can possibly represent the opinions and lives of all who live life without school. Each blog does, however, in some small way represent one life, one family, once voice, one lifestyle out of many who choose to live life without school.

On Questions

  • The simplest questions are the most profound. Where were you born? Where is your home? Where are you going? What are you doing? Think about these once in awhile, and watch your answers change. -Richard Bach

Questions for Us

  • What are ways you prepare your children to survive in our society economically? How are you sure your children are learning enough; what about holes in your child's education? Read more Questions for Us.

On Perspectives

  • A perspective does not tell me what is right for you. A persective shares a view into what is possibly right for me. No one perspective should hold a human being, especially a child, prisoner to its expectations.

Wonderful post! I love how practical this is. Thanks for putting it together for us. I have my first child in college now, and this advice is right on target. Thanks again.

Great information. Just starting to look into college for my freshman daughter. Thanks for heading me in the right direction for information!

Sarah, diploma owner

Wow, you researched a lot on this matter! I'm happy to know you managed to cope with the difficulties for your daughter. Your example is really positive, thanks for posting it.

Something else to consider is duel enrollment courses from a local college. These can be taken while still in high school and should count for both high school and college credits. Some top tier universities may not allow them to transfer in as college credit, but they do look impressive and give an extra amount of credibility to the homeschooled student's transcript.

    From the Quote Vault:

    The wave of the future is not the conquest of the world by a single dogmatic creed but the liberation of the diverse energies of free nations and free men.~John F. Kennedy

Editor's Corner

  • It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power. ~Alan Cohen
