Educational agents¿ demand on family involvement as a key to improve learning achievements raises home education model up to the top ranking of learning modalities, meanwhile, educational policies go to great pains to overcome school crisis. Family involvement affects children learning as much in the individual aspects as in the social participation into a world characterised by diversity. Consequently, a reflexive correspondence between individual diversity and social diversity is promoted for the improvement of personal development and social family context. In this way, family involvement and diversity are home-school keys to develop competencies; specially focussing on the autonomy and personal initiative competency and on the social and civic competency, which are included in the official curriculum of the educational system in Spain. Finally, we must emphasize the positive effects of service learning on the development of social competency of homeschoolers and the effects of technology on the development of autonomy.
