This study explores the experiences of homeschooling families with online mathematics instruction. It aims to provide useful information for researchers of distance education, designers of online mathematics instruction, and online educators to improve learning via virtual schools. The data was collected through interviews with parents and their homeschooled children as well as through observation of one of the children. The findings suggest that, even though there are some technical problems concerning the use of online instruction, virtual schools enable homeschooled students to gain responsibility and advance their grade level.
