When you are researching the top homeschool curriculum options, you’ll likely be comparing them closely to find out which one(s) is/are the best fit for your family. Aside from being able to test them out for yourself, this is difficult unless you know what features each one offers.

Depending on your personal worldview, your family circumstances, your academic goals, and your child’s specific learning needs, you may be wondering things like:

  • Which homeschool curriculum offers daily lesson plans?
  • Which homeschool curriculum offers payment plans?
  • Which homeschool curriculum is not common core?
  • Which homeschool curriculum is fun to use?

Matching Homeschool Curriculum Features with Your Needs

Even when you know all the features of a curriculum and how it compares with other programs, it’s important to focus on the features that are most important to your family. For example, if both parents are working while homeschooling, you’ll want to focus on curricula that requires less preparation time and that allows students to work somewhat independently. If you are on a tight budget, then you’ll not only want an inexpensive program, but you’ll also want to be sure that you can cancel your subscription or return products that don’t work for you.

Before comparing and contrasting homeschool programs, make a list of your “must have” features followed by a list of “would be nice to have” features. Having this in front of you will help your homeschool curriculum research go faster and will quickly eliminate programs that you don’t need to spend time and effort exploring further.
