Awesome Homeschool T-Shirts

I’ve been asked many, many times where my kids got their awesome homeschool t-shirts – you know the unsocialized homeschooler ones:

Sit back and let me tell you a story. (Be patient…there’s a really cool giveaway at the end.)

Once upon a time, there was a homeschool family with a kid named Josh. (Nope, this isn’t about us, even though I have a kid named Josh.) This homeschool family homeschooled way back 20 or so years ago. You know, way back when in homeschooling years.

There was a mom named Theresa and a dad named Chris. Theresa and Chris wanted a homeschool t-shirt for their son, Josh, but where to find one in the way back when of homeschooling?

Great Products t-shirt founders

Being the industrious folks that homeschoolers are known to be, they decided to make one. So, they found a book that named some famous homeschoolers. They put a collage of those folks’ faces on a t-shirt, added the caption, “I am homeschooled and so were…” on the top, and had the shirt printed up.

Josh (the one that doesn’t belong to me) started wearing the shirt. His homeschooled friends started asking where they could get one. Chris and Theresa discovered that people were willing to pay them for these t-shirts, and Great Products was born, bringing awesome homeschool t-shirts (and, now, novelty items and discount computers) to the masses.

The Osborne family has since sold over 25,000 of that original homeschool shirt design all over the world, along with dozens of other designs, including our family’s favorite, the “warning: unsocialized homeschooler” shirts.

Josh, who now has two children of his own, says that his family has traveled the country doing hundreds of homeschool conventions from coast to coast. “In fact,” he says, “we still do about 15 per year. The first 10 years of our travel, I was still being homeschooled. I got one of the best educational experiences possible because I got to see in person all the sites that most kids just read about in their geography books. Not only that but I was shown first hand how a business works and all the effort that must go into running a success one.”

The cool thing about the beginnings of Great Products is that is reminds me a lot of how we first came into contact with the Osborne family. It was in our second or third of homeschooling. My daughter had been out of public school for a couple of years, but she still often wore one of her two school t-shirts from her former elementary school. They were getting too small.

It occurred to me how cool it would be to have a homeschool t-shirt that would show Brianna’s pride in being a homeschool student. I also thought that it would be really cool for all the kids in our homeschool group to have matching shirts so that they could enjoy the experience of “school pride” and connectedness that a school shirt can bring.

I searched around the Internet and found Great Products, just at they were having their annual $5.99 t-shirt sale. I took up an order from our homeschool group and it wasn’t long before our kids had matching shirts with our homeschool group name on the back.

We placed orders every fall for several years after that, giving our kids a wide selection of homeschool group shirts. Great Products still offers that same $5.99 sale every year. In fact, it’s going on now through September 15.

    We love the Ninja one. I say we, but it’s my 10 year old son that really loves it! All 5 of my boys would love them (they’re just not up yet to see them)!
    I like the one that says “When it comes to education there’s no school like home.”

  2. Terri says

    Great site, I’ve marked it…I found some great Christmas presents! I like the Ninja shirt, that is so cute! Also the original with all the faces on it. But I have to say, I love the melting clock…I know it’s not a t-shirt, but it’s great!

  3. Alannah Michelle Linton says

    I cannot choose one. I have wanted to purchase shirts from them, but have never done it. Thank you for sharing.

  4. MichelleH says

    Both of my boys received Super Homeschool Student when they started K. My teen now wants the Zombie shirt, of course. lol My tween wants the Unsocialized and my daughter wants the Ninja. I like the Awesome Homeschooler shirt. I love Great Products, they have quality products in cute designs and I like that they’re a family company.

  5. Jessica Blood says

    I homeschool my 3 children and every year we go on this same wonderful website and order new shirts!!! My husband loves his unsocialized homeschooler shirts. He always gets many compliments from it when we are out!!

  13. Lesley Harrigan says

    Thank you so much for this great offer and for the background on the Osborne family. I had seen homeschool shirts, but wasn’t familiar with who made them. I will be heading to their site to see all their shirts. I am really interested in the one you mentioned about famous people that were also homeschooled. I think that would make a great conversation starter.

  14. aSprinkling says

    I think my favorite shirt is the Rooted and Grounded one. My favorite would be the Weird Unsocialized Homeschooler, but I don’t like t-shirts with solid printing – too hot in the south!

  15. says

    I love the homeschool mom, just add coffee! I am a coffee drinker for sure. My husband and I thought it would be an awesome to start our school year out with something new. We ordered t-shirts for the family. On the first day of school we all wore them. The kids woke up to them sitting on their desk. It was a great surprise for them.

  16. Lisa says

    I’d love to win this! I especially like the I Promise shirt and, of course, the Weird Unsocialized Homeschooler one, too!

  17. Heather says

    I really like the zombie t-shirt. We bought that one for my son and he loves to wear it. Also, daughter really like the contaminated homeschooler shirt and bought that one. :)

  18. Allison Weaver says

    My favorite is the homeschool mom by day, ninja by night :) hahaha With 4 boys (oldest 7 and youngest 2 months), these shirts are perfect! LOL

  19. Krystal Bruce says

    My favorite is the homeschool ninja tshirts! I have bought these for 2 of my daughters but would love to have one for everyone in the family!!

  20. Jen says

    We have been getting shirts from GP for years now. My kids fell in love with the Zombie one they came out with this year. Each of my kids will be getting one in their stocking (bought during the sale;)

  21. Tammy says

    Oh so hard to choose just one. I really like the Black Ninja shirt. Can’t wait for the black with the lady eyelashes to hopefully come out.

  22. Kelly C says

    When my son saw the ninja shirt, he started doing ninja moves– “Mom, that’s is the coolest!” I personally like the super dad shirt for my super hubby!

  23. says

    FUN giveaway! I will leave a note to myself to order some for Christmas presents too!!! Have to wait till payday though! :)

    THanks Kris!

    Those are some funny shirts! Totally worth it to debunk some of the thoughts that people have about “us”.

  30. JennyDavis says

    I love the Mt. Rushmore and the “this is what an awesome homeschooler looks like” but I know my kids would be all over the nija shirts. Great idea!

  31. MicahC says

    I love the Homeschool Mom Tshirt that says “Don’t interrupt me. I am having a parent/teacher conference” hahahahha!
    And the kids shirts are great! In love with the Zombie one, the original shirt with all the famous homeschoolers, and the Contaminated Homeschooler shirt! ha!
