*Study on home schooling, conducted by Dr. Brian D. Ray, president of the National Home Education Research Institute. Article from Home School Legal Defense Web Site.

# How does my child meet state attendance laws?

Assignment completion is school attendance. Home school daily attendance is counted as the student completes daily school work. Assigned learning packets are equivalent to instruction and attendance in class. With the procedures of the American Academy, students are required to complete all work in the assigned materials before taking final tests, enabling compliance with state attendance laws.

# Will my child be able to cope with the real world after graduating from home schooling?

To answer that question we must know what the real world expects of those who enter its work force. While listening each day to people in the “real world,” they tell us what is required to cope and be successful. The “Real World” of success requires five qualities. (1) Purpose in Life, (2) Good Attitudes, (3) Character, (4) Enthusiasm, and (5) Social Skills. Proper home schooling is the best method of building these qualities for your children.

# Is home schooling best for my child?

YES! By any and every possible way to measure, . . . unless cheerleading and sports are your "Ultimate values" - if so, dont home school!

> To build a mastery of academic skills, through core curriculum producing competence, confidence and enthusiasm for life.

> To develop social skills based on proper speech, appearance, manners and conduct.

> To build a positive attitude, based on the love of God and our fellow man.

> To develop patriotism for our country for the perpetuation of our American Heritage.

# Are my children better off with home schooling for their lives?

If your child is being better educated and building character while learning how to live, the answer is Yes! The Cambridge Academy Home School Program helps to build:

# MASTERY LEARNINGCurriculum is Individualized to fit the students needs. Students master curriculum learning concepts before moving to new concepts.

# SAFETY FEATURESThe child’s safety needs are addressed by the security of the home.

# CHARACTER ADVANTAGEThe Academy program emphasizes the development of personal character based on Honesty, Truthfulness and Integrity.

# What if my child transfers back to a state accredited public school?

In most states, if a student enters back into a state accredited public school from the American Academy, the receiving public school may test the student to determine if he/she should be placed in the desired grade level or if certain credits may be transferred whether the child is in grade school or high school.




Home-schooling growing in popularity

Published: Jan. 5, 2009 at 11:35

WASHINGTON, Jan. 5 (UPI) -- The number of U.S. children being home-schooled has steadily increased during recent years and shows no sign of declining, a statistician says.

There was a 77 percent increase in the number of home-school children between 1999 and 2007.

Gail Mulligan of the Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics said a variety of reasons led to 2.5 - 2.7 million children being primarily educated in U.S. homes in 2007, USA Today said Monday.

Among the home-schooling reasons given by parents in a 2007 survey were moral and religious factors, along with concerns about family time and finances.

Whatever the cause for the increase in the number of home-schooled students, Mulligan said, the figures will likely keep rising.

"There's no reason to believe it would not keep going up," she told USA Today.

Robert Kunzman, an Indiana University associate professor, agreed, saying the home-schooling movement has steadily expanded beyond conservative Christian groups.

Officials say an increasing amount of U.S. parents are embracing home-schooling to allow their children to learn at their own pace.
