If you are new to homeschooling like me, you can use all the help you can get! 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 middle and high 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 have been a HUGE help for me this year. 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 is in 11th grade this year (2020-21) so she has been at the high school thing for awhile. 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 is going to start high school next year (2021-22) so she is just starting to create high school content. Her level-headed advice is inspirational. She has four children, so her advice includes how to make things work for multiple ages.
The Oglesby Ohana
The Oglesby Ohana is one of my favorites simply because of Torrie’s energy! Her kids are younger, but her focus on how to have a relaxed homeschool and try out different curriculum is so calming for me…I love to just listen to her talk when I am stressed out.
That Homeschool Life
Niki at That Homeschool Life does super honest real-life homeschool chatting. She is a breath of fresh air. Her oldest is an 8th grader (2020-21), so she has good middle school info. Since he is advanced in some subjects, she also has some curriculum suggestions that are high school appropriate. She is a very good source for learning how to homeschool teens and tweens.
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.
My Busy Bees and Me
My Busy Bees and Me is another channel that I love to turn to when I need a pick-me-up and some encouragement. Erica’s a mom that has years of experience and seems to have it all figured out. As you can see from the video below, her videos include dancing! She has already graduated one student, so she is a good source for high school as well as younger students. Unfortunately, she stopped adding new videos a few months ago. I am really hoping that she starts again! But there is lots in her archives that you will find useful.
