Today’s guest post is from Cheryl at Adventures of a Somewhat Crunchy Mama. I was thrilled to get her guest post, because this is a topic I’ve never addressed, yet one that stumps many homeschool families. We named our homeschool when we registered with the state when our oldest turned 7. We used precisely the guidelines Cheryl mentions here! I hope this post helps those of you struggling to come up with just the right name!
Have you named your homeschool yet? You do not have to be funded by the government in order to have an official title. Just think of yourself as a privately funded school. Ha!
- You are a school. As I stated earlier, just because you’re not backed by government dollars doesn’t mean what you’re doing is insignificant. You are just as much a school as any public or private one.
- Think longevity. Be sure to choose a name that can go on college applications. The Hug-In Home School may be fun for a Kindergartner, but a high schooler surely wouldn’t like it.
- Be creative. You don’t have to simply use your last name, though you can if you like. Look to your goals, favorite foods, backyard nature or hobbies for inspiration. For example: Christian Hearts Learning Center, Strawberry Fields Academy or Towering Pines Home School.
