Homeschooling Magazines on the Internet

There are a growing number of homeschooling magazines on-line, but how do you find one that is right for you & your family? Most of the sites listed below include articles from present & back issues which can give you an idea of the tone & type of magazine, as well as subscription information so you can order the ones you may be interested in. I will also start adding various articles here. I have also decided to start listing magazines that may be useful to you in your homeschool. I have also broken down the page a bit; if you click on "Other Educational Magazines", you will find magazines aimed at the kids as well as other educational & family magazines and online newsletters for parents & educators you may want to use.

If you are looking for a specific magazine that you can't find on my page or that does not have an online version, try Homeschool Resource Guide - Magazines.

About.com Homeschooling Magazines formerly The Mining Company Homeschooling Publications, is a list of homeschooling magazines on the internet.
