Are you homeschooling a high schooler who might want to go to college?  (Don't miss the sale at the end of this post.)

What do you need to know then?  Does going through the college entrance process with your teen give you pause?

I have been blogging about college awhile now, and many of my posts are on my blog here

I decided to gather together all of my best posts and make them into an easy to use handbook for college.  And it is just for homeschoolers.  That way I could make each one connect right to the next, and add in printables and such to each chapter.

Kindle is over 20% OFF

With 12 + Downloadable Planning Printables

 ...and an editable transcript form, that is ready for you to fill in.

There are things that we did that helped her succeed in the college application process.  I share ALL of those tips in my book, as I want to encourage other families to go ahead and take on college, and not be afraid to do so.

Do you know what the colleges want to see on the homeschool transcript?  

What are they looking for in the college reference letters?  How can I get my teen to write a good college entrance essay?  What about course descriptions?  

All of these questions and more are answered in my frugally priced book.  

And I write it in an easy to follow manner, not like a lot of the other college related books out there. 

Why did I write this book?

I was so anxious about the college admissions process when I began helping our teen.  But I needn't have been!  

My teen got into each college that she applied to, with scholarship offers, including a state college, a tier two U, a harder-to-get-into private Christian college, and one more.  

And our homeschool transcript was accepted everywhere.  

Some bloggers have shared some incomplete information, based on just one type of college that their kids all got into.  My book background is broader, so you get information for each type of college out there.

We as homeschoolers often worry whether.....

...Do we need an accredited transcript?  
...Are.there extra hoops to jump through for homeschoolers? 

Homeschooling High School with College in Mind will not only answer these questions, but also make the whole college application process easier........ 

Kindle or Paperback

Our homeschooled teens do lots of great learning and sometimes volunteering or working part time during the high school years. And they all count!  

But what's the best way to share them?  That's in my book, too.

Showcase your student's accomplishments to the colleges!
