Notes for parents on Australian curriculum and reporting!
No textbooks, easy to use
'Thank you so much for all of your support! I was really struggling with getting my 16 year old daughter motivated to do any study at all. I didn't want to put her back in to school and I didn't want to enrol in distance education - this was like my prayers were answered! Finally we are back to the inspired and hopeful girl that I know! Our daughter is loving the freedom of doing projects at her own pace - and I am loving having time out to focus on our younger children! I would highly recommend this program to everybody who is homeschooling teenagers!'
It is our first week on the program and I have never seen my teenage son so motivated - I really like the projects on refugees and domestic violence. We would never have thought to include them in our homeschooling.
'We are travelling around Australia and have limited room for text books and other homeschool resources - something that we can do online is SO HELPFUL! All we need is our laptop and internet and we are set. Yes I would definitely recommend this to other families travelling around Australia. It is an invaluable resource for our homeschooling'
"Where do I start? We are unschooling and didn't want to send our son to school for years 10 - 12 but really wanted him to be able to go to TAFE or Uni if he decides to later on. This is a perfect happy medium for us. He can work by himself, choose the topics that he likes, mark his own work, research at his own pace, and it fits in with our unschooling philosophy that we let him do what is a good fit for him. This is NOT anything like a distance education program. I have recommended it to my closest friends - it is amazing and we are so happy to have found you!'
' We were really lucky to get the Academy of Free-Range Learning membership on special. I really like that our daughter can work by herself, and tell us all about what she has been researching at the end of the day. It is really important that we are able to keep homeschooling from year 10 onwards, when we thought the only options were distance education or going back to school'
Independent learning - step by step instructions
What exactly will you find in our academy?
As unschoolers looking to transition to higher education, this was a great middle ground for us! We had no timelines or deadlines to meet, no head-sets or school fees. I could still use our own books and we led our usual unschooling lives, but we are also able to give our teen access to projects that will help her in getting in to university in a few years!
