Homeschool Students and Parents Can Learn Almost Anything For Free At Khan Academy

If you are a homeschooler then you should be using one the best resources for video learning out there. It's Khan Academy and they claim that you can learn almost anything for free. That is the best deal that I have seen so far for homeschoolers.

The Khan Academy is an organization on a mission. They are a not-for-profit group with the goal of changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education to anyone anywhere. All of their site's resources are available to anyone including homeschoolers just like you.

What can you learn you ask?  Well, hmmm... Let's see... Algebra, Geometry, Science, Biology, Chemistry, American Civics, Art History, Banking and Money, Calculus, Astronomy and much much more.

To this point Khan Academy is the best free resource I have seen in my 11+ year homeschool journey.

Thank you to our affiliates and sponsors

Hey my homeschooling peeps.  I just want to take a quick moment to thank our affiliates and sponsors for making sure our sites bills get paid.  In addition I also want to give a shout out to those of you who have purchased and supported our affiliates and sponsors.  It greatly helps us take care of the day to day costs of running this site.

My goal has been to select advertisers and build affiliate relationships that will be most beneficial to my homeschooling audience and in turn keep us on the air producing some awesome content. Because lets face it; If we select vendors or affilates that sell you, excuse my french, "Crapola" then you won't come back. And we can't have that.  So hopefully we have done a good job selecting some winners for you. Enjoy!
