The V.I.P. Program
A fully customized, all-encompassing white-glove service
As a VIP Program client, your unique needs, concerns, and homeschooling goals will guide me as I put together a fully-customized homeschool program just for you. No "one size fits all" approaches offered here – all the facets of and recommendations in the program are tailored specifically to your family! Just sit back, answer a few questions, and let me do all the work to prepare your homeschool launch! It’s the perfect solution for the family who needs to start homeschooling now.
I've been homeschooling for over a decade and have learned a lot along the way – much of it through costly trial and error. How I wish I could have handed someone else the reins and said, "Please figure this out for me!" In the VIP Program, that's exactly what I do – figure everything out for you.
Of course, every situation is different, but I'm confident that together we can get you where you want to be on your homeschooling journey – with a lot less costly trial and error.
We will work together over the course of two sessions to hammer out what you're looking for in your homeschooling experience. Guided by our conversations, I'll create the ultimate homeschooling resource for your family to get you started on your homeschool adventure as quickly as possible.
Your homeschool coaching questionnaire provides me with the basics about your family and your needs. But this call allows me to get to know you all better – your children’s personalities and interests, your hopes and priorities for their education, your reasons for homeschooling, and whatever concerns, questions, and special considerations you might have. After this call, I can begin shaping your family’s homeschool implementation plan and identifying what local resources and supports will help make your first year successful.
This call allows me to further hone the customized plan I create for your family. We’ll discuss the results of the assessments you and your children complete. We’ll hash out the specifics of your family’s daily/weekly/seasonal schedules. I’ll clarify any questions I have about your needs, wants, budget, children’s interests/strengths/weaknesses/etc. and make sure I’m on the right track to deliver the information you need to launch a successful homeschool journey.
Sometimes life changes, and your homeschooling situation needs to change with it. Don’t panic – you don’t have to navigate those changes on your own! VIP clients “skip to the front of the line” and enroll in the Confident Homeschooler Membership Community even if enrollment is currently closed!
It's easy to get overwhelmed, but successful homeschooling (like most things) comes down to figuring out a handful of fundamentals and making some key decisions. During our interviews, I'll guide our conversations to gather the information I need to determine the right approach, resources, and curriculum for your family. When I'm done I'll deliver a customized homeschool plan to you that covers everything you need to homeschool with confidence.
I'll provide a clear explanation of your state's laws and connect you with support groups. I'll also explain how to keep records, how to file the required paperwork to withdraw your children from public school, and more.
The learning style assessment and personality assessments helps me get a better handle on your child’s and your personalities so I can select curriculum that suits them well and makes learning fun for them (and makes teaching easy for you).
My methodology assessments help me determine the approach your family should take to homeschooling. It also provides valuable guidance for me as I select curriculum options and create your implementation plan.
To save you time, money, and frustration, I analyze multiple factors — like your priorities, methodology, budget, and children’s learning styles — to help me select one or two curriculum options for each subject.
I'll provide a comprehensive list of online resources as well as local resources for enrichment classes, co-ops, field trips, and more so you can find a homeschooling community that suits you.
I'll create a customized implementation plan so you know what to actually do each day. I will also give you a roadmap for the future so you know how to prepare your children for their post-homeschooling pursuits.
"[This program] has been a transformational process for our entire family! I was very excited but nervous about the journey we were about to take, but GoodSchooling paved the way. We went from being nervous and scared to confident and elated. I was worried that I would be overwhelmed with all the choices but you helped me every step of the way. We were able to choose the curriculum that works best for our son and he is thriving as a result.”
Great! It's easy to get started. Just submit a VIP Program Questionnaire. It's a great way for us to learn about you, your family, and your situation.
There's no financial commitment necessary at this time. We will discuss the program investment once we mutually agree that my white-glove, Custom VIP Program is your best option.
I work with a limited number of VIP Program client each month to ensure each family receives the time and attention they deserve. If I am unable to work with you this month, you will be notified of your place on the waitlist and will not pay anything until we begin. I will also provide you with some guidance as to what you can do in the meantime to begin making your transition into homeschooling.

How long does the VIP Program take?
The entire program takes around between two and four weeks to complete, depending on the complexity of your situation and how long it takes your family to complete the assessments and assignments I provide. The size of your family, your unique circumstances, and our ability to coordinate our schedules for interviews all affect the length of the process. If you start the VIP Program during the school year, you will be given guidance in what to do with and for your child during the time that I'm creating your program so you don't need to wait to withdraw them.
Do you offer refunds?
VIP Program services are non-refundable. I do, however, make every effort to ensure that we are a great fit for each other before either of us commit to working together.
After you submit the VIP Program Questionnaire we will schedule a phone call to further discuss your family’s situation and your homeschooling goals. This call also allows us to get to know each other and determine if we will work well together.
My goal is to help you homeschool. If I can do that, I will. If I believe there are better options available for you, I will let you know that, too.
What if I'm not sure we're a good fit?
If you're looking for a homeschool expert to custom-build a homeschooling program for your family, narrow your curriculum options to a small, manageable number, and prepare you for what your daily homeschooling life will look like, then chances are good we'll work well together.
I invite you to complete the VIP Program Questionnaire, on which you can also note any concerns you have that make you wonder about our fit. If I think we'll be a good match for each other, then I'll reach out for an initial interview, and during that conversation you can clarify any concerns you have that are holding you back. I won't invoice you for the service until we have both agreed that my VIP Program is what you really need and we're both ready to start the process.
Does this program include my curriculum and materials?
One of the benefits of the VIP Program is that I give you specific recommendations for what curriculum you should consider for each child. You make the final call, however, on whether or not to use that curriculum, and you would be responsible for making those purchases, as well as for purchasing any other materials and supplies you need to implement your custom-built homeschool program. However, I also give you guidance on the best places to buy your curriculum and materials so that cost and quality are within your specifications and budget.
What will my custom program include?
Your custom-built homeschool program will include:
a homeschool methodology crafted specifically for your family;
1-2 curriculum options for each subject, as well as recommendations for where to purchase them;
guidance on daily implementation (schedules, how to use the curriculum, etc.);
an extensive guide for local and online resources;
student learning/personality profiles and parent personality/instructor profiles and potential points of conflict between the two.
You will also have the option to enroll in the Confident Homeschooler Membership Community upon completion of the VIP program, in order to have access to ongoing support and coaching.
Not sure if the Customized VIP program or the Confident Homeschooler program is the better option? Just schedule a FREE homeschool exploration call so we can talk through your questions and concerns. My goal is to help you homeschool. If I can, I'll tell you. If I think there are better options out there for you, I'll let you know that, too. This is all about you and your family. I'm here to serve you. Let's figure out the best way forward together.
