    Default Hello and welcome!

    Time4Learning is happy to provide a forum for homeschoolers in individual states to connect with one another. Please use this forum to find members near you, ask each other Georgia-specific questions (like homeschool laws, playing sports within the school system, etc.), and post information about local homeschool events.

    I am seriously looking at Time4Learning as an online homeschool curriculum for my 11th grader. Is this accredited for the state of Georgia? I cannot find the accreditation on the Time4Learning site.
    Thank you,

    Hi. Time4Learning is not an online school. It is a homeschool curriculum. A school can be accredited but a curriculum can't. Hospitals and other institutions can also be accredited, so that word doesn't mean what many people think it means.

    No state dictates what curriculum you must use or may not use to homeschool your child. Time4Learning is used as a homeschool curriculum by many, many families in the state of Georgia.

    Georgia just says you "must provide a basic educational program that includes, but is not limited to, reading, language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science." That doesn't mean you have to teach every single subject every single year. They do not dictate the content of the subject so, for example, that "social studies" will be U.S. history one year, community helpers another year, geography for awhile, and so forth.

    Georgia also requires that you have your child tested every three years after third grade, so you will want to keep that in mind when choosing curriculum. Most students who do well with Time4Learning do quite well on standardized tests.

    Georgia has other requirements: the person teaching must have a high school diploma or GED, you must teach at least 4 1/2 hours per day for 180 days per year (remember that music lessons, organized sports, field trips, Scouts, 4H, educational videos, arts and crafts, reading for pleasure and other things all count as "school hours"), you must notify the school district of your intent to homeschool and you must write an annual progress report. There may be other expectations, so be sure you visit your state's Department of Education website to know and understand you state's homeschool laws yourself.

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!

    The annual declaration to the STate of Georgia of intent to homeschool is a standard simple form.
    Where is it?

    It's right here!
    For the rest of the State of Georgia's declaration or the regulations (which are pretty simple), look here.
