Why The Masters Of Flip Stars Homeschool Their Kids

Masters of Flip stars Dave and Kortney Wilson initially moved from their native Canada, independently of each other, to pursue their dreams of music stardom. After meeting and finding common ground, the Wilsons also discovered their shared love of renovating homes. After hooking up with HGTV, they joined the illustrious ranks of reality stars Drew and Jonathan Scott (Property Brothers), Chip and Joanna Gaines (Fixer Upper), and Karen Laine and Mina Starsiak (Good Bones). 

Although they announced their shock split in December 2019 (via Instagram) after 18 years of marriage, the Wilsons followed in the footsteps of former paramours and current colleagues Tarek El Moussa and Christina Haack by teaming up on a new show, Making it Home With Kortney & Dave, which debuted in July 2020. Tackling the education of their children shouldn't prove too much of an issue for them, particularly considering how well the Masters of Flip duo have taken to their new co-parenting setup. 

Homeschooling made the most sense for the Masters of Flip stars

As Pop Sugar notes, the former Masters of Flip stars share three kids — sons Jett and Sully and adopted daughter Lennox. The Wilsons adopted her at birth, with Kortney gushing to HGTV, "When we met Lennox, we just knew that she was supposed to be a part of our family." The boys being homeschooled brought them closer together, according to the mother-of-three. Speaking to This Mom Loves, she explained the couple opted to homeschool because "We live in the urban core of Nashville where you have to lottery in and out of schools and although they did go to a great elementary school, we weren't entirely satisfied with our middle school options." 

In fact, the kids were spending so much time trying to get through their homework assignments that everything else was left by the wayside. Jett and Sully did eventually transition to regular school, as Kortney told Mama Bare. "[The boys] went to elementary school from K-4 so I only homeschooled them for 3 years before they transitioned to upper middle. I say 'only' because once we got started, I was really enjoying it and I was kind of bummed to stop. It was time though," she admitted. As of 2019, a 9-year-old Lennox was still being taught at home while her mother tried to find a suitable school for her. The Masters of Flip star was in no rush to give up their precious mother-daughter time, however.
