18 Life-Long Homeschool Goals

Goals give us direction. If you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know when you get there?

Take some time to pray over what you want to accomplish. Use your homeschool mission statement as a guide.

Keep your goals simple. For our homeschool goals, a bullet list worked perfect for us. These were goals we wanted to see achieved when homeschooling was over.

Having your goals written out can greatly help save time and money because it gives you guidelines for what to teach, what curriculum and resources to invest in, and what extracurricular activities to pursue. Everything you choose for your homeschool venture should bring you closer to reaching the goals you listed and avoid pulling you further away from them.

Here’s a list of the 18 homeschool goals we wanted to see our child achieve by the time she graduated. Use this list to inspire writing a list of your own. ( Feel free to borrow any of these goals to add to your list.)
