There’s a whole new set of rules and requirements when you have a teenager in the house. One of the things you start to deep dive into is their education.
Are they getting enough help with the subjects that may be difficult for them? Are they being challenged enough in the subjects that come easy for them? As homeschoolers, this comes up quite a bit for us. The challenges in both camps of learning are something we constantly think about.

Learning From Your Peers Is Key
Here’s the secret I’ve learned over the past 6 years of learning at home: your peers matter. Sometimes it just makes more sense when someone who isn’t an adult teaches you that thing you struggle with daily.
Yup, that includes siblings. My kids have learned so much from one another, especially when it comes to schooling. My 9 year old is there for my 14 year old, and vice versa. Learning from your peers helps to take you to the next educational level.
I was very intrigued by Brainly when I first heard about it. It seemed perfect for my teenager, since he is at the level where it helps to have someone his age to ask about math, science, and how to find more information for his paper about The Tempest.
What Is Brainly?
Brainly is essentially crowdlearning. Students can join for free and are able to lean on the worldwide student network of users for assistance with homework. They are able to swap their knowledge in some areas, for help in areas where they are not as strong.
It’s all student led, with subject expert moderators ensuring accuracy, and preventing simple answer swapping. It’s students learning from their peers, and re-enforcing their knowledge, by passing it to others.
The Brainly Scholarship
I actually learned about Brainly through their scholarship. A friend tagged me in a social media thread since our 14 year old will be off to college before we know it, and the scholarship highlighted that it was created for students who have home-school experience.
Well, with the current state of the world, ALL of our kids now have home-school experience. Here’s more information about the scholarship, so you can have your homeschooled student apply.
It’s a $2,500 scholarship open to any students who are in high school, plan to go to college and have home-school experience (which is every kid these days.)
The students are asked to write a 300-400 word essay about how parent support while learning from home has helped them to succeed.
A few of the scholarship requirements:
- Be at least 14 years old and no older than 21 years old
- Legally reside in the US during the time of application
- Be a current high school student
- Intend to be enrolled as a full-time student or take online classes at an accredited undergraduate U.S. college or university within the next 4 years
- Have home-learning experience
