Can Homeschoolers Work During School Hours or During the Day?

Can homeschoolers work during school hours? Can they work during the day? I think they can. In fact, this seems to be the best time for them to work.


Homeschoolers get their work done very quickly compared to school students

It’s useful to recognize homeschoolers complete their work in half to a third of the time children do at school. This means that while school children are doing six to seven hours a day, homeschoolers will only be doing around two to three hours of work a day.

This means homeschoolers can work during school hours and have a lot of time to spare.

What can they do with that time?

A good suggestion is to start them working on an entrepreneurial venture. This is when they think up a business idea, and think about how they can make it work.

This can be as simple as figuring out how to start their own lawnmowing or blogging business.

Otherwise, they can get a part-time job, or they can learn how to plant a vegetable garden.


Homeschoolers Can Work During the Day and During the Night

Now, while homeschoolers can do all their work during school hours, they can also do it any time they want. This is one of the best things about home educatioin.

As a result, many teenagers choose to do their work later at night. This is because their brains like to wake later in the day (this is why they seem so sleepy in the morning) and stay up later at night.

If schools insist on getting teenagers up early, getting into schoolwork can be a real struggle for them.

But, homeschooling solves the problem by telling teenagers they can work anytime they want during the day.

Homeschoolers can work during the night, capitalizing on late night hours

I was homeschooled myself and loved my experience.

While I learned during the day, I also learned late into the night as a teenager. In fact, I spent many late nights (or early mornings) reading the end of many a novel.

I didn’t have a ‘lights-out’ curfew as my parents figured any reading was a great idea. (And why not let the kids have a little sleep-in if they’re reading (i.e. working) at night.)

Because they did this, I developed a real love of reading which I have to this day and am very thankful to my parents for!


Yes, homeschoolers can work during school hours

In conclusion, it’s absolutely possible to fit in all your academics in during school hours and much more. Homeschoolers can work during the day, but they can also work during the night. Anytime is a good time for them!

The advantage of homeschooling is that students also have a lot of time to spare. This means they can follow their interests, develop a business idea, or engage in plenty of reading, developing a love of literature. Homeschooling is such a great way to inspire children to learn. I hope you’ll give it a go!

Rebecca Devitt
Most adults don't particularly want to relive their schooling experience on a daily basis. They would gladly move on to a new life devoid of homework and teachers. Very, very few adults will passionately blog about their schooling some 15 years after graduating. This makes Rebecca Devitt somewhat unique. As it happens, she was homeschooled. And she loved it. Still does. And she wishes every kid could get a taste of homeschooling at its very best. Her website How Do I Homeschool, is a springboard for parents to see what a life of homeschooling could be for both them & their children. When she's not blogging Rebecca is still homeschooling her-adult-self by learning Latin, growing weird vegetables and most importantly looking after her two children Luke & Penny. She has a husband Tristan and is a participant at Wollongong Baptist Church. She's also written a book about why parents should homeschool called 'Why on Earth Homeschool'.
