We kept the FUN in our high school years......(ebook sale is below)

High school is not just about core studies.

Our daughter explored hands-on science projects to save the salmon in our local creek, made videos and entered them in a contest, ran for office at Youth and Government, competed in irish stepdancing, learned to make freezer jam, and made lots of high school friends.

There's electives, high school activities, and time to explore new things.  It is a great time for your teen to discover their own interests and gifts.

Knowing the details of college planning can free you up to create an individualized high school program for your teen, like we did.

But how?
