Philadelphia Homeschool Evaluators & Evaluations 2013
Hello Fellow Homeschoolers!
It’s that time of year — time to start scheduling evaluations.
Pauline, from the “Ask Pauline” Website, has done a fantastic job of compiling a list of evaluators for homeschoolers in and around Philadelphia. Please check out her site if you are looking for an evaluator for the first time. You can get to her site by clicking HERE.
In general, you will need to take your child to a homeschool evaluator if:
- You are homeschooling through the Traditional Method (not via Virtual Charter School, not via Private Tutor, and not through a “Day School” or “Church School” extension) AND
- Your child turned 8 or above before the start of the 2012 – 2013 school year
