If you are new to homeschooling like me, you can use all the help you can get! I began my homeschool journey by jumping right into homeschooling middle school and high school! Needless to say, it was a bit scary! There is tons of info out there for homeschooling elementary school kids, but it can be a lot harder to find good resources for parents who are homeschooling teens. Thankfully, there are some great YouTube channels out there to help you homeschool your teens and tweens.
Homeschooling high school and middle school kids can be daunting, but I have learned that it is totally doable! In fact, it can be a lot of fun! YouTube homeschool moms were a HUGE help for me when I started in 2020. I find their experienced voices to be reassuring, motivating, and even calming when I need it.
I’ve done lots of digging for months and months, and I am excited to share with you the best YouTube channels for homeschooling high school and homeschooling middle school! For each one, I’ll include a sample of one of my favorite videos for you to take a look-see.
Without further ado, here are the best YouTube channels for homeschooling teens and tweens.
My favorite homeschool YouTube channels
Our Blessed Life
Our Blessed Life is soooo helpful. Colleen has a very organized way of presenting how to homeschool high school. She has lots of videos about curriculum choices as well as tips for things like making transcripts, planning, and handling standardized tests. Her High School Homeschool playlist is chock full of good information. Her older daughter was in 11th grade during the 2020-21 when I was getting started, so she had been at the high school thing for a while. She also covers how to create honors courses, which is helpful. Her younger daughter has special needs, so she has content about that as well.
Grace and Grit
Grace and Grit specializes in The Good and the Beautiful curriculum, and Ashlee also has really good advice about how to homeschool middle school. Her oldest daughter started high school in 2021, so she was just starting to create high school content when I discovered her. Now she’s been teaching high school for a while, so check her out! Her level-headed advice is inspirational. She has four children, so her advice includes how to make things work for multiple ages.
Niki at Homeschool Knockouts does super honest real-life homeschool chatting. She is a breath of fresh air. Her oldest was an 8th grader during the 2020-21 school year, so she has good middle school info. Since he is advanced in some subjects, she also had some curriculum suggestions that are high school appropriate. She is a very good source for learning how to homeschool teens and tweens. She hasn’t added much since 2021, but I hope she gets at it again.
Our Homeschool Plan
Rachel at Our Homeschool Plan is such a fun, down-to-earth mom. I feel like if I knew her in real life, we’d be buddies! She has lots of homeschool curriculum reviews for teens and tweens, and has useful advice for organizing your homeschool as well.
Monson Schoolhouse is another one of my favorite choices for high school info. Mikael is very Christian, so her stuff isn’t for you if being secular is important for you. She loves The Good and The Beautiful curriculum and shows how to use it, but she also has other sources that she shares. I like Mikael because she’s obviously so happy with what she is doing with and for her kids…it brings me joy to watch her. Unfortunately, she hasn’t been posting many new videos lately. I’m hoping she’ll get back to it.
Janelle Knutson has very helpful, organized information to help you get started homeschooling middle school or high school. She is good with step-by-step suggestions and curriculum reviews. She has been homeschooling for many years and has already graduated some of her kids. If you are homeschooling tweens and teens, she can help.
Emily at Arrrgh Schooling specializes in literature-based homeschooling. She also has created a curriculum called Build Your Library, which is wonderful! We used some of her curriculum for 10th grade. Not surprisingly, her YouTube channel is filled with awesome book recommendations.
