Homeschooling is a broad term that involves parent facilitated learning experiences for students outside of the traditional all-day, site-based classroom structure. This session will share the stories of four gifted students who were homeschooled for part or all of their pre-college years. Public school independent study programs, radical acceleration through private homeschooling, and early college access will be discussed along with practical suggestions for how teachers can support families choosing this alternative path.
