High School

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

Is homeschooling high school really that hard?  

No, and maybe a bit yes, too.  But we are SO glad that we homeschooled all the way.

It does involves more planning and record keeping, and such.  But with the right resources and tips, it can be a wonderful way for your teen to do high school.

We are so glad that we went all the way.  It gave our teen time to discover her own gifts and allowed us to meet her individual needs re sensory and attentional issues.

There is so much more to high school at home than just doing the core studies.

  1. This is a VERY helpful page of resources... I will be referring to it often now that we have started our high school journey!

  2. Thanks so much, Mary Prather, for stopping by, and your kind comment! I am hoping to put this into an ebook form someday, as I would like to help more families who are looking at the college option. I enjoyed reading your latest update, on your two kids, as they start another great year! Thanks for hosting Collage Friday!
