Rising Popularity of Homeschooling Helping to Drive Low Cost Online Education Options.
Johnson City, TN, August 02, 2018 –(PR.com)– While many homeschooled students get the summer off from regular classes, homeschooling parents never take a break from ministering to their children. Nor do moms stop looking for the best curricula to use in their teaching.
Around the world this summer, more than 7,000 member families are gearing up for the new school year, excited about the nearly 400 courses offered by SchoolhouseTeachers.com, a division of The Old Schoolhouse®. Students love the fun and informative lessons; parents love the way the subjects are based on a Biblical worldview.
“Some Christian families spend thousands of dollars each year on private school education, but not every family can afford that,” explained Gena Suarez, founder of The Old Schoolhouse®. “We developed SchoolhouseTeachers.com to offer families the quality of a private education at a fraction of the cost and designed the courses to not only help parents teach their children, but also to minister to them. Students learn Christian values while they are learning subjects like history, science, and language arts.”
Membership to SchoolhouseTeachers.com gives a family access to more than 380 courses and homeschool set up and planning tools, with no limit on number of children, or courses studied at a price of less than $20 per month. How is this possible? It begins with the determination of Paul & Gena Suarez, founders of The Old Schoolhouse®, that money should not prevent any child from receiving the best homeschool education. It is then made possible by the fact that everything members access is 100% digital. There are no textbooks to purchase, so no boxes need to be shipped to the home. All the resources are downloadable and printable.
The benefit of volume sales is another factor that allows savings to be passed on to the members. The rising popularity of homeschooling is helping to drive online homeschool education. Growing faster than expected, the online K-12 education market reached $67 billion in 2017 (Global Online K-12 Education Market Report 2018, BisReport, March 1, 2018). With over 7,000 member families and counting, SchoolhouseTeachers.com is pleased to be a leading player in a growing industry that is helping parents teach the next generation at home.
