Every day, parents all across the United States make the choice to homeschool their children. Homeschooling always involves a sacrifice of some sort—time, energy, and financial resources. For the thousands of active duty U.S. military families who make the choice to homeschool, the burden is often greater. Our founder, Josh Wiggers, spent part of his young life living on military bases, as his own father served in the Air Force. In fact, it was while living in Germany that he earned the nickname "Josh" from their maid who could not pronounce "George," his given name. As a part of this legacy of service, we want to honor the military families among our customers and the homeschooling community. As these families work to protect our rights as American citizens (including the right to homeschool), they are building an even brighter future by choosing to educate their children at home. Twice this year, we will select a military family that is homeschooling to receive one of our complete Trail Guide to Learning curriculum sets. These sets have a retail value of over five hundred dollars. It’s one small way that we can give back to those who have sacrificed so much for each of us. Would you join us in our mission by letting us know about your own homeschooling military family or nominating a family that you know? We will select a family in February and November of 2012. Please use the submission form below and be sure to spread the word to others that might be interested. Thank you for your service and we look forward to hearing from you! (Please note that at this time, this promotion is only open to active duty military families. Thanks for your understanding!) Visit our sign up form to submit your entry!

    It’s not so much that I enjoy customizing our heohscmool curriculum, so much that I am just not comfortable NOT customizing. From the beginning my kids have been ahead in some areas and more average in others (different areas for different kids), and there was no way I could buy every subject on a single grade level because up to half of it would be wrong. I take the time to customize each year for each kid because it saves me time and money in the long run.

    I would love to nominate the Bogan Family in Hawaii! I was neighbors with them for years at Fort Campbell and they are such a wonderful, caring homeschooling family that lives very frugally to save for the future! They would really be grateful!

    Just starting to homeschooling my 4yr old, since there has been a lot of serious changes in her life the past few years I figured it would be best.
