At Great Peace Academy we are a family homeschooling an only child who is a gifted learner. Homeschooling an only child presents it’s own unique set of circumstances. While homeschooling a gifted learner presents additional unique educational needs.

On the one hand there are many advantages to homeschooling an only child. On the other hand there are challenges as well. Additionally, our son Jonathan, being an advanced learner provides even more unique challenges. Seeking to meet his unique needs our homeschool is an eclectic mix of gifted learning resources, unit studies and advanced math.

My goal is to share the joys, sorrows, triumphs and even frustrations of our homeschool endeavors with you, my readers, so that you can see that you are not allow.

With over 2 million in the U.S. chances are someone you know is already on the journey. One of the keys to being successful is to have a good support system.

Great Peace Academy Gifted Learner

Gifted Child Homeschooling at Great Peace Academy

Homeschooling is daunting in and of itself. Taking on the full responsibility of seeing to the education of a gifted learner can seem like an insurmountable task. However, I fully believe there is no other educational solution that can or will better meet the unique needs of a gifted learner, than homeschooling can. Through homeschooling a family can truly provide an entirely customized education meeting a child where they are in their level of learning rather than holding them back or pushing them forward.

Through gifted learning posts at Great Peace Academy I will share resources, information, and encouragement to support your decision to homeschool your gifted learning child. Know that I am no expert, I’m simply a homeschooling mom learning her way through the education of my own child while seeking to meet his unique needs.
