Homeschool High School? Me? No Way!

Some people experience the panic before they begin homeschooling high school. When they first come to grips with this prospect, they cry out, "Me? Homeschool High School? No Way!" Have you ever thought you weren't qualified? Perhaps you don't have a college education. You may not even have a degree in classroom instruction! And yet God, in his infinite wisdom and humor, has chosen YOU to do this crazy thing.

Moses knows just how you feel. He was called on to approach a ruler and demand the freedom of the slaves in Egypt. How did he respond to this task? He panicked! "Me? No Way!" He had some great excuses too!

Homeschool High School? Me? No Way!



Me homeschool high school
Moses said to the LORD, "O Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue." The LORD said to him, "Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? Is it not I, the LORD ? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say." But Moses said,

"O Lord, please send someone else to do it."
~ Exodus 4:10-13



Moses thought that his slow speech would make him incapable of the task. But the task isn't dependent on skill, it's dependent on obedience. Look at it this way; if God called you to homeschool high school, He WILL give you the skills you need for the job based on your obedience.

Don't feel like you aren't qualified. Moses proved that he didn't need to be a smooth-talker in order to get his job done. You don't have to achieve a high degree of education to be successful either. Whether you graduated college or not, it's the love of your child that will ensure success. In fact, check out the statistics on page 2 of this brochure: Homeschool Achievement Statistics

When you feel like quitting, you may call out,  "O Lord, please send someone else to do it."  Moses said it himself, and the Lord still seemed fond of Moses! Don't beat yourself up about panic, just remember that the Lord has always been faithful, and He always WILL be faithful. You can do it!

Thank you very much for the reminder! I really needed that word of encouragement. I am going through a time where things are not proceeding how I want them to and I am struggling. Perfect timing! God bless you!

I agree that God will equip those he calls. Why do I rarely read about trying to home school special needs children through high school? Lee has said that you don't have to teach, they just need to learn. It's a little harder than that with my son who has Aspergers. I have to learn everything with him to help him. Any advice on that?

Dear Cheryl,
It might be really good to connect with homeschoolers in your area, who are on a similar journey. In her blog post, Special Needs Question about High School Lee says, "There are many homeschoolers who struggle with some subjects – or ALL subjects." She shares some helpful links in the same post, in addition to some really helpful comments by people who read the post.
I hope that helps!
