Welcome to our Homeschooling Page!

We are pleased to provide resources for you to use in your own home, or if you’re just checking out what this homeschooling thing is all about.

Our family happens to use the Classical Conversations curriculum based in Classical education, but there are many more wonderful styles of schooling out there.  Click on the image below for more information about the Classical Model of Education.

Practical Family is not affiliated in any way with Classical Conversations, we are just a family who loves their curriculum and creates helpful resources for other families. You can also visit CC’s official website here.

I will be adding to this page and writing blog posts as we go, but I would LOVE to hear from you about your homeschooling experience. Feel free to email me: jenn@practicalfamily.org with any requests for topics or suggestions on our blog. This page is for you!
