Hewitt Homeschooling Resources
Hewitt offers a full curriculum for all grade levels, including teacher, transcript, and testing services.

  • High school is their most popular service package. Some parents need assistance with classes at the high school level. Others find their students perform better when they are accountable to someone outside the home, or that they take criticism and correction better from other teachers. Many people want grades and transcripts from an external source for colleges.
    Enrollment includes four evaluations a year, two hours of counseling time on our toll-free number, a transcript, and a diploma (once all requirements have been fulfilled). Evaluations include letter grades and narrative feedback, so you'll get specific comments on your student's strengths and weaknesses. Evaluations average 2 to 4 pages in length, depending on the number and type of classes.

  • Junior High (Grades 7-8). This package includes two evaluations a year, teacher counseling, PASS tests, and a Certificate of Completion with letter grades. Our Junior High program does a terrific job of preparing your student for the high school years.

  • PreK-6: Unit studies for Grades PreK-2 provide day-to-day lesson plans which meet all the grade-level requirements. For Grades 3-8, our PASS tests will show if your student is making sufficient progress, and our Learning Objectives will tell you what should be covered in each core subject for Grades K-8.

    By Rebecca Rupp

  • K-12
    Options including purchasing an entire year's curriculum or picking and choosing courses.

    The middle school history text does not read like a textbook at all. It is similar to The Story of the World, but for upper middle school grades. Homeschoolers also like their Earth Science, appropriate for any child in grades 6-8; the text for that program is online to look over -- with a student workbook and experiment book.

    There is an option for teacher support or you can do it independently.

    This is a secular program.
