Hey, everyone! So ever since I posted this big news post, I’ve gotten questions pertaining to homeschooling and my big switch. So I decided to create a mini-series and answer all your questions. This is part 3 – Why I Switched From Homeschooling To Private Schooling.
One question that I get asked a lot is, “Why did you decide to go back to school?” That’s a pretty fair question. So here’s the short answer: I missed being in a social setting.
Here’s the long answer: I believe that there is a time for everything. I loved being homeschooled and being at home with my family. There wasn’t anything about it that I didn’t enjoy, but as high school graduation drew closer to an end, I felt that I needed to go back to being in an actual brick building school.
“Why didn’t you just go to a public school?”, you may ask. I wanted to go to a school where I could share my faith openly, somewhere I could feel comfortable in, somewhere I could have a Christian education. For me, that meant going to a Christian school. I also wanted a place for me to make great friends. As a homeschooler, I didn’t have much social time so it was really important for me to be able to have that. So, I chose a Christian school where my friend goes to.
Hopefully, this post helped you all understand my decision. If you still have any questions, comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
