hi. I’m really confused! I need help! so I am currently homeschooled. but I don’t have many friends. I do have about 2 at ballet but that’s it. and I feel really dumb like I cant do anything school related and I feel like I’m far behind in school for 14 years old. if I do go to private school I’m going the Ambassadors for Christ most likely. but I’m scared! or confused! I don’t know. I’ve prayed and prayed about it and I don’t know what to do. I’m afraid I will miss my dad to much and he will be sad and he needs me. and I’m afraid the homework will interfere with my ballet and acting. and I don’t know anyone who has been to the school personally so I don’t know how much homework they give out. And what if I’m right. what if I am dumb and make a fool out of myself. I do want more friends but what if no one will like me. nobody does when I’m homeschooled. I’m just so confused. I don’t know what to do! please help! PLEASE!

If you want to go to private school and it’s practical for you to go, then I think you should! By practical, I mean that there are several factors that might change whether it would work for your family. Like, if the school has tuition, can your parents afford it? Private schools often don’t have busses, so will a parent or guardian be available to drive you to and from school? Your first step should be asking your parents if it would be possible for you to go to the school. You’ll need to be able to explain why you want to start going to it because they will likely ask. And you can figure out together whether private schooling is a good option for you.

Hey Maddie13! I know how you feel about the whole homeschooling thing, sometimes being by yourself in your school isn’t good enough. I have been back and forth with public school and homeschooling, but I’m homeschooled now. I agree with May93, you definitely should make sure it’s an option for you and that it will be practical.

Also if you join private school, you will be much busier. But you really need to learn how to balance your work and your extra curricular activities. It’s difficult at first, but you do get used to it and it does get easier.

And you WON’T make a fool of yourself. When I went back to public school, they were taking a different math and they were half way through the curriculum. I suggest, if you don’t understand something just ask the teacher if they or someone in the class could. Also, always take your chance with extra credit!

And you won’t be able to be with your dad as much, but you will still see him and get to hang out with him. Maybe you could do something extra on the weekends. Maybe you could go out for ice cream, go to the park, or have a movie night.

I meant to say in the third paragraph: ” I suggest, if you don’t understand something just ask the teacher if they or someone in the class could help explain after class.”

I was homeschooled my whole life too, and this was my first school year at a private school and I was scared too. I wanted to make friends but I also worried about the homework.
The first week or two was the hardest. I thought I was gonna look dumb too, but I was wrong. I highly suggest it! There are ups and downs about both sides. I thought that since I had been homeschooled my whole life, that I would never get used to the rhythm of private school. But I did. I thought nobody would like me either, but I have 3 really good friends because of it! I would keep praying about it, that’s what I did, and I think you should bring it up with your dad (if you haven’t already). My homework is challenging (but its not too challenging) and lots of kids do sports and drama and still manage to get their homework done. 🙂
