Philadelphia, PA, September 17, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Mimi Rothschild, founder of Learning By Grace, a faith-based online homeschooling academy, has recently announced that enrollment for the 2009-2010 school year is at its largest level since her company’s inception over eight years ago. Due to economic hardships facing many families, Mimi Rothschild noted that parents struggling to keep their children in private schools are opting for Learning By Grace’s homeschooling program in lieu of public school.
“We are strong supporters of private Christian schools and suggest that parents keep their children enrolled if at all possible,” said Mimi Rothschild from her company’s headquarters in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Rothschild added, “However, if parents must pull their children out due to financial reasons, Learning By Grace is an excellent, cost-effective alternative. Many parents have recognized this, which has contributed to our record-enrollment this year.”
Since opening day in 2001, Mimi Rothschild said that Learning By Grace has served tens-of-thousands of parents and students with its online curriculum, programs and managed academies. In addition to the economy, other factors for growth include the growing demand for curriculum that reflects a biblically-based world view. Additionally, many parents are confident they can do a better job educating their children than most local schools.
With a decline in moral values throughout the public school system, many are also opting to limit their children’s exposure to negative socialization influences such as bullying, drug and alcohol abuse, sexual promiscuity and other disruptive behaviors.
"More and more parents are realizing that homeschooling can make a dramatic impact in the future of their children,” said Mimi Rothschild.
