Are you homeschooling a high schooler who is interested in college?  Does going through the college entrance process with your teen give you pause?

I have been blogging about college for about 3 years now, and I decided to gather together my best tips and put them into a book, so they would be all in one place.  

I wanted families to have an easy to use, frugal resource that answers their questions on college for their homeschooled teens. My hope is that this book will encourage those who are preparing their teens for college and will help them not only get in, but also have a choice of where to go.

First day on campus!

Homeschooling High School with College in Mind will not only make the whole college application process easier, it also will help you prepare your teen for college.

My book is based on my experience helping my daughter not only get into college but also be ready for it.  She was admitted to each of the colleges on her list with scholarship offers, and was pleased to get into an ivy and also a tier two U.  She is now a junior in college, thriving there.  

There are things that helped her succeed, and I share those tips in my book, such as, what exactly do the colleges want to see on the homeschool transcript?..or what are they looking for as far as electives, reference letters, etc?  

In addition, I talk about college prep, and what I found to be helpful in getting my daughter ready for college level studies and preparing for college level writing.

Why reinvent the wheel?  

Regular prices: Kindle - Amazon @ $7.17
