Large Family

Sometimes we need structure; other times we need flexibility. Thankfully, we offer you both at Could I show you what we mean with two examples?

 Schoolhouse Spelling offers seven different spelling lists every week. They’re spread in categories we’ve labeled PreK/K; Lower Elementary 1, 2, and 3; Upper Elementary; Middle School; and High School. These equate to PreK/K, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th-5th grade, 6th -8th grade, and 9th-12th grade. But if you are using Lower Elementary list 3 and suddenly find the words have become too easy for your child, it’s a simple and painless switch to begin using the Upper Elementary list instead. You don’t have to purchase new curriculum mid-year.

What if, instead, you are looking for a course your high schooler needs to take for credit, such as Biology, Botany, or Writing? More than a dozen of our courses include recommended transcript weighting. Just look for the hyperlink in the gray and red box on the course introduction page.

One membership to serves your entire family, regardless of how many children you are homeschooling or what their ages are. There are no per child fees, and courses range from preschool to high school. If you’ve never had a membership to the site before, you can sign up for a welcome basket and a free thirty-day trial .

Who We Are:

“I am amazed at the number of times I open The Homeschool Minute newsletter and have the opportunity to read EXACTLY what I need that day! Thank you so much for putting a real face on homeschooling.”
  –Michelle Sager

“I really appreciate all the information and the many uplifting articles in your magazines. Invaluable. Thanks for all you’re doing to help us homeschoolers.

 –Kathy P.

“Only just this past week have I seriously checked into the content of the site … May I just say wow?!”

  –Janelle Chille

Mason City, IA

“I really enjoy reading all the THM articles. I learn a lot from Todd Wilson’s column. [He’s a] funny guy who speaks the simple truth! Thank you very much!”


Brandon, FL

“I look forward to THM every Wednesday. I really enjoy Deborah’s articles. For some reason, it must be God, she always writes about what I am needing to hear. Her ability to put scripture and God in the middle of all her articles keeps me coming back. I recently have been enjoying the Youngs’ [articles] because I have a young man (10) in my house. The encouragement of the Youngs is fabulous. I thank God for parents like them that pave the way for parents like myself and my husband.”

–Racheal Fowler

 Glen Burnie, Maryland

“So love reading TOS on my iPad from cover to cover every month!!!”
–Leigh Anne McGrady
Dunwoody, GA

“I love the new TOS app! So convenient. So quick. All the encouragement I need at my fingertips … any place at any time.”


“Thanks ever so much. I love the encouraging articles! I really loved the list of 25 all in one place. Nice to have this little bit of “free” encouragement in my mail. I don’t have funds to subscribe or purchase frills and with also working more than half time I don’t have time to search it out. May God bless you exceedingly.”
