Study.com

Whatever your homeschool situation, Study.com provides the support you and your child need to succeed. Study.com offers a personalized online homeschooling curriculum for grades 3-12, as well as homeschooling for college credit.

Parents start by creating a self-paced, customized learning path for their child by choosing unlimited classes across all grade levels. Our all-in-one homeschool curriculum does the heavy lifting through lesson planning, teaching, automatic grading and progress tracking while you focus on supporting your student. Whether you’re homeschooling for the first time, are a veteran homeschooler, work full-time or just want to provide your students with a subject area expert, Study.com has what you need!

Your student will learn by watching fun, engaging video lessons that use maps, graphs, pictures and illustrations to link ideas with concrete examples and show step-by-step problem solving. Study.com makes it possible for homeschoolers to learn from highly qualified, experienced teachers (who hold a master’s degree or higher), while still being in the comfort of your home. Study.com also allows your student to learn in a safe environment while still practicing social distancing. Parents don’t have to choose between safety and a quality education. With Study.com, you can have both.

Founded in 2002, Study.com began creating an online learning platform that would provide students with an affordable, high quality education to help them achieve their educational goals. By studying pedagogy (researching the best way to convey knowledge and skills in a way that a student can understand, remember and apply), we found that students learn best when information is given in short, bite-sized lessons and when students can see and hear the lesson content at the same time. Lessons on Study.com were designed to meet the needs of 95% of students who are visual and auditory learners. The other 5% are kinesthetic learners who have the time needed to engage with the material in different ways after watching the video lesson.

Study.com continues to be the expert in online learning by offering core classes, elective classes and literature study guides, as well as courses, study guides, flashcards and test prep for dual credit, end of the year exams, state testing and popular exams such as PSAT/SAT/ACT and CLEP/AP. Study.com takes away the need to research and pay for different curriculums by offering homeschoolers everything in one place and for one price.

Study.com provides a self-paced homeschooling curriculum, allowing your student to spend as much time as needed to master concepts. Instead of spending hours on busy work, Study.com allows your students to customize their learning by only using the learning tools they need to succeed. Homeschoolers have access to:

  • Printable lesson transcripts
  • Fill-in-the-blank transcripts
  • Worksheets of questions without multiple choice answers perfect for discussion questions or short answer responses
  • Online note-taking
  • Flashcards
  • Quizzes
  • Chapter exams
  • Course final
  • Additional activities
  • Projects
  • Experiments
  • Assignments

A favorite feature among homeschool parents is the opportunity for students to continue the learning process through assessments. Study.com offers a “watch the correct answer” button beneath every question, on every assessment. After completing an assessment and clicking on the button, students will be taken back to the exact chapter, lesson and the exact place in the lesson where the teacher is teaching that concept. This allows the student to focus on learning by being retaught the concept instead of wasting time searching for an answer or just moving on. Students can be retaught all missed concepts before retaking assessments as many times as needed to show mastery. This process is continued throughout the course, resulting in the mastery of content and greater retention.

Middle school & High School lessons break down difficult concepts into bite-sized chunks of information and are self-paced to fit any student’s schedule. In addition to core classes, Study.com also provides electives in Spanish, literature, computer science and dozens more. If you have a middle schooler or high schooler who is behind in math but grade level for other subjects, have them receive the remedial support they need in math, while taking other subjects at grade level.

Parents choose online homeschool courses based on the students’ needs, allowing them to fill in learning gaps and move on successfully in each subject. Gifted students thrive on Study.com because they can work ahead and even begin earning college credit when ready. Students with learning disabilities and special needs can work at their own pace and excel with the built-in accommodations that they are familiar with having in a classroom setting. For example:

  • Needing a variety of sensory modes to introduce information – speaking, reading, visual stimulation
  • Having information repeated or summarized at key points
  • Having access to lesson outlines, notes or transcripts instead of traditional note-taking
  • Receiving more time to complete a task
  • Being allowed to take frequent breaks
  • Taking a test or quiz in multiple, shorter testing sessions
  • Chunking of larger assignments (i.e. a project assigned insmaller segments with more frequent due dates)

Study.com also provides additional homeschool resources that parents can use without needing the time to create them. Homeschoolers enjoy:

  • Writing prompts
  • Essay topics with rubrics
  • Science experiments
  • Lessons
  • Activities
  • Projects
  • Access to over 1,000,000 answered questions
  • On-demand help from expert instructors

With personalized learning, parents get to decide whether their student completes these additional activities and assignments and if their student takes assessments open-book, verbally, paper-pencil, online or not at all. Parents also determine the weight of assessments and assignments and issue a course grade customized for each child.
