How much does homeschooling cost?

September 16th, 2009

Another question we are often asked about homeschooling is how much does it cost? That is an interesting one as it can be as cheap or expensive as you like.

As a family we generally spend $150 to $300 per year on each child. This is made up from a variety of books we have purchased online or from local book suppliers.

We have decided that next year we will be getting all of our books from Australian Homeschooling Supplies. Their website says it costs about $300 per year for a primary school child and about $350 per year for a high school aged child.

When you think about it that works out to be $5.76 per week per child in our case. When you compare that to a private school education that is very very cheap!
