I’m often asked about skipping grades and graduating early.
In my opinion, learning is a journey, not a race. And hopefully, it’s a life-long journey. In my homeschool, grade level is beside the point. My children learned at home until they were of the normal age to graduate and pursue their post-high school goals.
So my advice is to focus on providing more in-depth learning experiences rather than skipping grade levels.
If you’re using a school-in-a-box curriculum where everything is targeted to a specific grade level, you can move ahead, or provide different, enriched, and more meaningful learning activities for the rest of the year.
If you’re using different providers or resources for each grade level, you have a lot more flexibility to tailor education to your student’s strengths and weaknesses. You can move ahead in some areas, slow down in others.
