Popular Homeschool Providers in the Philippines List

Here is the list of Homeschool Providers in the Philippines for parents who want to transfer their kids from traditional schools to home-based learning or Homeschooling.

You can use this blog post as a reference (only) in finding the schools near you, their contact details, respective tuition fees, admission requirements, and the year levels they are accepting.

What is Homeschooling?

Home-based education or Homeschooling is a method of learning where students study their lessons at their homes or in places outside the walls of traditional classrooms.

Usually, if the students are independent, they can study the lessons on their own. However, for kids, it is usually their parents and tutors who are in charge of teaching the children.
There are also online teachers who monitor and communicate with kids through webcams and online applications. There are instances when students only need to go to school to participate in major examinations.

The lessons are based on the curriculum of homeschool providers accredited by the Department of Education of the Philippines.

In general, Homeschooling is an alternative to the traditional classroom-based school system.

Is Homeschooling Allowed in the Philippines?

Yes, homeschooling is allowed in the Philippines. This is based on the Philippine constitution article 14 section 1 (2) as quoted:

“Establish and Maintain, a system of free public education in the elementary and high school levels. Without limiting the natural rights of parents to rear their children, elementary education is compulsory for all children of school age.”

Section 4 (1) of the same article number indicates that the state shall regulate and supervise all educational institutions. As quoted:

“The State recognizes the complimentary roles of public and private institutions in the educational system and shall exercise reasonable supervision and regulation of all educational institution.”

Based on the DepEd Memo number 216 s. 1997 (DECS Memorandum No. 216 s. 1997). Students who are under the homeschool program may transfer to mainstream schools. He/she must be accredited first by the Department of Education of the Philippines (DepEd).

Homeschooling is Growing Globally

The statistics of parents who consider homeschooling as a way to educate their kids are becoming higher around the world. It continues to rise in the United Kingdom, USA, and Australia and is getting traction in the Philippines.

For example across the UK the number of students shifting to homeschool has increased by 40% in a span of three years from 2015 to 2017 according to a BBC news report.

In the United States, there are 16 states that have shown significant growth in children receiving a homeschool education. From the spring of 2012 to the spring of 2016, there is an average growth of 25 percent in those indicated states.

Also, based on an estimate, there is a growth of 2% to 8% in the past few years in the student population who are shifting to homeschool overall in the US.

Homeschooling is legally recognized in all territories and states in Australia. Over the years, the country has also shown a significant increase in students’ populations who are receiving home-based education.

In Queensland, there are roughly 1100 homeschooled students in 2013 and has now increased to 3232 in 2018. There are around 3300 students receiving their home education in New South Wales in 2013 and by 2017 it has increased to 4700. The state of Victoria has 3545 homeschooled children in 2013, in 2018 it has increased to 5300.

Benefits of Homeschooling your Children

There are various pros and cons as to why parents choose to homeschool their kids instead of sending them to conventional schools.

They want to keep their kids away from some negative school environments such as peer pressure and bullying.

They need to homeschool their kids because the parents are OFWs. Oftentimes they want to bring with them their children while they work or travel abroad. Based on our experience.

homestudy program philippinesThey want quality education for their kids. They probably think that a classroom with a ratio of 35 students to 1 teacher will not give the kind of quality education they wanted.

The child has special needs that a traditional school system will not be able to provide.

Parents want personalized education for their kids to help them learn in their own way and pace. Unlike in traditional schools where teachers move to new topics even though some students are having a hard time catching up with the lessons.

Also, in most cases, the traditional system is standardized. Children’s performance is assessed based on sets of questionnaires and ranked them based on their scores. Those who got lower scores may develop low self-esteem. The worst is it can cause depression.

Parents just want to do hands-on when it comes to teaching their kids everything they need to know about academics, religion, and culture.

There are probably more reasons that I was not aware of and not able to mention such as tuition fees and reviews per school.

For no reason allow me to share with your parents a quote:

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

Always remember that your child is a genius in their own different way.

    Hello. Thanks for this article. My husband and I have talked to our kids about homeschooling and they are okay with it although it took them time especially our son. We just thought this is the safest thing to do right now because of the pandemic. I hope they accept students who live abroad. This is the first thing that I will inquire. Stay safe and thanks again.

    • Matt

      Hi Josie, you can inquire to them directly. You may also ask them about the tuition fee rate if the student is based abroad or in the Philippines.
