Philippine validating tests pvt
We are lucky these days that we have several groups of homeschooling families, whether online or offline, who come together to share information, educational resources, encouragement, and social activities for the children.
Special thanks to a dear friend Laskmi Maluya for providing the information.

This is part 1 of a series of homeschooling questions I would like to answer through this blog.
Homeschooling in the Philippines can be classified under two groups: those who are enrolled in a Dep Ed Accredited Homeschool Provider and those who are independent homeschoolers.
So, what does it mean when you say independent homeschooling?
Most if not all, uses the Dep Ed K to 12 curriculum as their guides.
The third way is by taking the Philippine Validating Exam from the Department of Education.
I deliberately put this as the last option because it involves transacting with the Dep Ed, and one thing I've learned in all my years as a public school teacher, then later as a homeschool teacher, is that you never want to transact with the Dep Ed.
It's a tedious, time-consuming, and frustrating task.
Foreign homeschool providers Many homeschoolers in the Philippines are enrolled with foreign homeschool program providers such as Seton Home School and Kolbe Academy.
(My kids are enrolled in Kolbe.) Are these schools accredited in the Philippines?
