The above websites are provided by MCHE to help new and existing home educators with their schools. MCHE does not endorse any of the companies in the above list who provide courses or courseware. It is important that every home educator do their own research to find and use the best available for their families and students. Do not be afraid to ask for references or sample materials to consider.

 

Home education magazines are highlighted in MAGENTA

 

Online instruction providers are highlighted in YELLOWOnline instruction providers that advertise as 'ACCREDITED', are followed with '(**)' - SEE INFORMATION BELOW ON ACCREDITATION STANDARDS IN MONTANA. 

Regarding 'Accreditation' (and 'accredited programs'):

Often, home educators seek out instructional programs that are ‘accredited’ in order to have a degree of assurance that their child (aka student) will have little problem with a possible re-entry into public school OR that the ultimate high school diploma will be equal (to public schools) in acceptance by higher educational institutions (aka colleges or universities or vocational schools).

The use of the important word ‘accredited’ can cause those who are analyzing a program(s) for their use, to assume that it is fully accredited in Montana, on equal footing with Montana’s public (or accredited private) schools. It is not. The Montana Board of Education, over the years, has fulfilled Montana law (20-7-101(1) MCA) by creating the requirements for accreditation that the Montana Office of Public Instruction (OPI) is charged with administering. No school, private or home, can achieve comparable accreditation outside of strict adherence to OPI’s standards. These standards include teacher certification, curriculum approval, etc..

In seeking out home education programs that advertise as being accredited in Montana, it is important to challenge the company to provide proof of their accreditation approval by Montana's OPI. There have been a number of cases over the years, where families were using 'accredited' home education programs, expecting NO difficulties in possible re-entry to public schools, and/or entry into universities, colleges or vocational schools - and they ended up with problems.
