Following Provincial Standards with your homeschool

Following Provincial Standards With Your Homeschool

Deciding to homeschool can be such an exciting yet terrifying experience. You may love the idea of educational freedom and making education fun. However, learning standards might scare you, which can make the idea of following provincial standards with your homeschool an overwhelming task.

Canada is considered to be one of the most educated countries in the world. Ranking 2nd out of 16 peer countries. In 2019, 73% of Canadians between the ages of 25 and 34 had obtained postsecondary qualifications, according to Statistics Canada.

Additionally, 15-year-olds in Canada are among the world’s highest educational performers in reading and math. Even though education appears to be solid throughout the country, staff shortages, strikes, the COVID-19 pandemic, and overcrowded classrooms have all played a massive role in parents choosing to homeschool their children across the nation.

Homeschooling is legal across Canada, which is excellent! Because you can offer your child the one-on-one learning they need while still following provincial standards with your homeschool.

What are provincial standards for education?

If you live in Canada, you may be familiar with the term ‘provincial standards for education.’ But you may be unsure of what it means exactly. Canada has a very robust and well-funding public education system. Most aspects of this educational system are managed on a provincial level. Meaning each province manages its educational system.

As a result of each province managing its education system, educational standards and the system itself can vary by province. Furthermore, the federal government still oversees the education system of each province to ensure that education remains consistently high throughout the country.

How can you follow provincial standards?

Each province in Canada follows the same standards for Math and Language Arts. Sometimes a province may have a slight shift in learning standards for Science and Social Studies. Following provincial standards with your homeschool is as simple as finding a Canadian homeschooling curriculum that aligns with provincial standards or looking up those standards for yourself.

Some provinces like Quebec, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Newfoundland have much more strict rules around homeschooling. So, checking in on your local laws around homeschooling before diving into educational standards is best. These provinces have been hyperlinked for your convenience to the homeschooling standards of each province listed.

Math and Language Arts learning standards.

As stated above, Math and Language Arts standards remain consistent throughout Canada. This means regardless of which province you are in, you can follow the same learning standards for their grade. The significant variations by province are in Social Studies and Science.
