Why do celebrities homeschool their kids?

Educating our kids is very important, specially in todays super competitive environment. But sometimes, the traditional education system can be overwhelming and even unreliable. That’s why many celebrities prefer to educate their children at home.

From Kim & Kanye to Brad and Angelina , homeschooling kids is a growing trend among celebrities, and it probably has a lot to do with the fact that being the children of famous people, their experiences in the traditional school system are not like those other kids have. After all if school is dangerous for regular kids, sending a famous child or a child with particular background or condition could turn into a nightmare rather quickly.

Although, the outrageous amount of money that usually comes with being a celebrity, can guarantee your kid will have a place in the best schools nationwide, many celebrities and rich families have opted to provide their children with at-home education:


  1. Jennifer López
  2. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise
  3. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
  4. Mayim Bialik
  5. Kris and Caitlyn -formerly Bruce- Jenner
  6. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
  7. Cynthia Bailey
  8. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin
  9. Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar
  10. Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin

One of the main reasons celebrity parents choose homeschooling their kids, is because they can share their learning experience regardless of the busy schedules they might have. Also, homeschooling their children allows them more control in what the kids are learning and how.

Another important aspect of homeschooling is, as Angelina Jolie explained the opportunity to provide the children with a more personalized education that adapts to their specific needs “we travel and I’m the first person to say, ‘get the schoolwork done as quickly as possible because let’s go out and explore. I’d rather them go to a museum and learn to play guitar and read and pick a book they love. I feel that there’s got to be a new way to tailor things more directly to our children.
