Homeschooling or home schooling, also known as home education or elective home education, is the education of school-aged children at home or a variety of places other than a school. Usually a parent, guardian or tutor is the primary educator when a student is home schooled.
Based on each family and their preference, home schooling can take on many different forms. While some families prefer to keep a loose structure with no strict curriculum to adhere to, others tend to be more strict.
There are various reasons for home schooling as well. Some families might live too far away from the closest physical school to make a daily commute possible. In those circumstances, home schooling is the preferred choice. Others might choose to home school if they are travelling extensively. Yet others might choose to home school because of their beliefs or a child’s needs.
Many families choose to become part of home schooling cooperatives as well to encourage socializing and sharing of resources.
CGA provides a number of international curriculum classes that can put home schooled students at the same level as their peers.
The Pre-International GCSE is an online programme developed for 12-14 year olds that provides a knowledge base for the academically rigorous International GCSEs.
Students usually begin the International GCSE curriculum in Year 10 or 11 by sitting 4-5 subjects. These subjects are structured as first introductions to the specific topic areas that they cover.
The A-Level curriculum is the #1 studied curriculum in the world, and in many countries high grades in A-Levels can result in university course credit. The syllabus prepares students aged 15-17 for university.
The CGA US Diploma is an online, project-based program that empowers students to take classroom concepts and expand on academic ideas to solve real-world problems and develop digital portfolios.
This is a one year online programme for mature 12-15 year-old students looking to improve their English before entering an IG course.
As part of the EPQ, students have the opportunity to research and produce an extended essay (or dissertation) that adds depth or breadth to one of the subjects they are already studying at A Level.
University admissions have changed a lot in the past couple of years. Now universities look for well-rounded students who demonstrate interests and skills outside the classroom as well. This is where extracurricular activities and leadership positions come into play. These activities help demonstrate who you are outside the classroom and in your community.
