Australian Year Eight Homeschool Curriculum
Our Year Eight Homeschool Curriculum is written to comply with the Australian Curriculum. We’ve done the planning so you can be confident you are giving your child a well-rounded education and that you comply with Australia’s homeschool registration requirements.
However! We offer you more than a tick boxes Year Eight Homeschool Curriculum. We also offer an Australian Homeschool Curriculum that is a delight to teach and a pleasure to learn.
This Charlotte Mason inspired Year Eight Homeschool Curriculum is something special.

I like how this course has all information including links etc….available for student to use – enabling independent working with minimal support from parent. The workload is just right for my child. I’m absolutely interested in doing the Year 8 course next year.Lousie from ACT
The Year 7 Course is easy to follow and provides comprehensive resources. I tweak some things but otherwise we find it fits and meets our needs well. Registration was a very easy process, everything you need is provided. I received two years registration on my last visit. I’m definitely interested in Year 8.Hope from NSW

Here is a comprehensive guide of what our curriculum provides. It includes subjects, lesson plan, additional books, and a brief overview of our method.
The mind “is nourished on ideas and absorbs facts only as they hang connected with the living ideas upon which they hang. Children educated upon some such lines as these respond in a surprising way, developing capacity, character, countenance, initiative and a sense of responsibility…The mind feeds on ideas and therefore children should have a generous curriculum.”Charlotte Mason
Thank you for putting together this wonderful course. Over the last 4 years I have taken 2 of my children through Years 7 and 8 using a distance ed programme but this year my daughter and I have found this course to be a much less stressful transition to high school. I love knowing that we are still fulfilling the requirements for the Australian Curriculum but I have also been able to give my daughter the rich classical literature-based education that I was looking for. I have been interested in the Charlotte Mason style of education for a few years but until now I was frustrated that everything I came across was based on American history/geography/seasons. Thank you for putting in the time to track down and integrate appropriate Australian resources into the curriculum.
This was my first year registering with the Qld Home Education unit myself so I also found the information that you included regarding registering very helpful. I have also used the Year 5 and Prep courses this year and found them to be wonderful as well. Thank you again; my daughter and I are really looking forward to seeing the Year 8 curriculum when it is ready.
