Home School Directory

A directory of ‘real’ educational resources for the liberty-minded household. This is a community driven directory, however Parents For Liberty has given each listing its stamp of approval. We encourage you to contribute, it’s free!

We use the term ‘school’ merely because this is a common expression. Home education directory is a more accurate description of this resource.

Our goal is to create the most useful home education directory on the internet.

MIT Open Courseware

Through MIT’s Open Courseware (referred to on the website as OCW), many of MIT’s courses are available to the self-directed or homeschooled student for free. Of course, no credit is offered toward any degree, but the access to these types of courses for free is a great way to enhance your homeschoolers learning, especially in the subject areas of Math and Science for which MIT is so well known.

The Well-Trained Mind

From their website:
The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home (first published 1999 by W.W. Norton and now in its third edition) offers a step-by-step, grade-by-grade, subject-by-subject guide to the classical pattern of education called the trivium. Thousands of parents have used the curricula, books lists, and methods of The Well-Trained Mind to teach their children successfully at home–either full-time or as a supplement to classroom education.

The Well-Trained Mind is the perfect book for those just starting out with homeschooling, those who have a few years of experience, or those who have been educating their families for a long time and just need to read some recommendations for working with older students. With this model, you will be able to instruct your child in all levels of reading, writing, history, geography, mathematics, science, foreign languages, rhetoric, logic, art, and music, regardless of your own aptitude in those subjects.

Our site complements the information in the book, providing updated resources, articles, links, forum, support, and more.
