What Does the British Academy Home Schooling Programme have to offer?
For some parents, Home Schooling is the more affordable option. Our Home Schooling programme is an alternative education solution that families in Dubai can opt for. Parents want the best for their children and education is at the top of their ‘to do’ list.
Home Schooling gives parents the flexibility and the freedom to choose and explore individual interests and tailor children’s’ preferred areas of study.
Concerned parents also have the peace of mind that their child is getting the attention and support he or she needs in order to grasp a difficult concept. This maybe in Maths, Chemistry or even to master the techniques required to succeed in an English listening or reading exam.
Extensive research carried out in the US has consistently shown that children who are home-schooled score better in exams than children in state schools. The Home School Progress Report of 2009, conducted by Brian Ray of the National Home Education Research Institute and reported in the Washington Times, surveyed more than 11,000 home-schooled children and found that, on average, a home-schooled child scored 37% higher in standardised achievement tests than their publicly-schooled counterparts.
