High School/College

Welcome!  We are glad that you are here.  I invite you to subscribe here and follow me on Pinterest, G+


Are you thinking about homeschooling all the way through high school, or are already doing that?   Sharing today, my favorite resources for high school ----that really helped us to not only get high school done, but also find the fun and joy in it, too.  

Is homeschooling high school hard?  Yes, in some ways, it is. Just because it involves more planning and record keeping, and such.  

But with the right resources and tips, it doesn't have to be that hard. And we are so glad that we went all the way.  It gave our teen time to figure out who she was, and to discover her own gifts. 

I wish the same for your teen, and hope these resources will be an encouragement to you and your family.

  Now let's look at college from a homeschooling perspective:


Homeschooling prepares our kids so well for college.  They go in knowing how to research, organize their studies and with a motivation that many other college students lack. This is based  on my own teen's experiences, and her observations on campus.  

I was nervous as she entered college, then she came back to me with honors grades.  Why did I worry so?  We really don't need to!  And colleges are becoming so homeschool friendly, too. 

with updates

My always homeschooled daughter was accepted to all of the colleges on her list, with scholarship offers.  And it wasn't hard to do. We were able to keep own homeschooling style along the way. 

That could be your teen, too!
