WHAT IS THE IAAP WAY OF HOMESCHOOLING?
Let’s say, you received 2 party invitations. The first is printed on grey paper in black ink. It contains boring information including the location, the theme and food. The second card on the other hand has an interesting layout and colors . The card projects fun, wonderful delicious food and lively music. It seems to be an exciting and interesting time and you do not want to miss it.
Now think of your children and ask yourself which invitation to a homeschooled education do they want to receive? A boring way or the fun interesting way?
Out with the boring and in with the love of learning. This is the HAP Way of Homeschooling.
International Academy of Asia Pacific believes that every child must enjoy learning and must not be pressured or stressed. IAAP promotes the approach where every child loves learning and studies enjoyably. IAAP wants the parents to enjoy teaching too. HAP promotes relaxed fun effective teaching and grading methods. Usually regular schools and some homeschools may be strict in their gradings and submissions of tests and quizzes. This may make the students pressured to get good grades. The parents too may be pressured to make the child remember the right answers to get good grades. Thus, learning may become mere memorization. IAAP, on the other hand, believes in stress-free true learning your child enjoys.
We, at International Academy of Asia Pacific (IAAP), believe that parents are uniquely very qualified in educating their child because they are the ones who care about the future of their child more than anyone else.
What is Homeschooling?
Homeschooling is educating a child in his/her home usually with the parent as a teacher. However, learning is not limited inside the home. Learning can be done through field trips, travels, outreaches, extra-curricular activities and the like. Teaching style is very flexible based on your child’s learning style and interest. There is no fixed way of teaching your child because each child is unique. The curriculum in Homeschool of Asia Pacific is already provided and the parent will teach the topics in his/her creative way that will interest the child.
What are the benefits of Homeschooling?

Will my child be socially abnormal due to “lack of socialization”?
Not at all! Because of your homeschool bonding, your child will grow confident, loving, friendly and secured. To compensate for the “lack of socialization”, you can engage your child in interesting extracurricular activities where he/she has classmates. You can make these activities part of his/her curriculum. Example, a new sport he loves can be part of his P.E. Music lessons can be part of his Music class. Art lessons under Art. Graphic design lessons under the Computer subject. There your child can meet peers and new friends.
Can An Ordinary Parent Homeschool?
Being a parent, you are already homeschooling unconsciously since your child’s birth. By teaching your child to communicate, make his first steps, distinguishing what is good and bad, you are already qualified to teach your child. IAAP simply requires that atleast one parent a highschool graduate.
We will guide you and support you on teaching your child.
Can I start at any month? Or does it have to be June?
Yes, you can start at any month. You can also end at any month. We accept students all-year round. You can even enroll your child to the next level right after finishing a level. You can in a sense “accelerate” your child by saving time and continuing to the next level.
Can a working parent homeschool?
Can a working parent homeschool?
Because homeschooling is very flexible you can set your own schedule.
Teaching your child DOES NOT NEED to be 8 hours a day like regular schools. Regular schools need long hours to organize big numbers of students. Unlike them, homeschool can less than 8 hours per day because you are handling only one child or one child at a time. It can be done after supper and you may opt to give an assignment for the next morning to check in the evening session. Reward the child of leisure time when he can pursue his interests and hobbies while you are out working.
If your work allows, you can bring your child with you and teach “practical, financial, career or business lessons” while working.
HAP empowers parents to flexibly mold homeschooling to their family’s lifestyle, WORKING AND NON-WORKING PARENTS CAN HOMESCHOOL.
Can I hire a Tutor?
Yes you can hire a tutor. The tutor must be atleast a highschool graduate. The parent must oversee the tutor and the child’s learning. If it works for your child then go ahead but if it does not, then you can change tutor or teach the child yourself.
