A Step-By-Step Guide to Homeschooling in High School

We all want our children to become poised, confident, and productive adults. Homeschooling through high school will help you achieve the goals that you and your children have set.

A Step-By-Step Guide to Homeschooling in High School (Part 2)

This is a great time to be homeschooling! The options are many and diverse. Besides the traditional student book/teacher book method here are other ideas...

I have often commiserated with other parents that homeschooling in grades K-8 can be so much fun, but homeschooling in high school can quickly turn into a daily drudgery. We quit living life as we have known it up to this point and begin living life within the context of graduation requirements and college entrance prerequisites. All of a sudden we have this overwhelming sensation that this is the "real thing."

Good Communication

Communication between parents and children is always of vital importance. But I have found that when you homeschool your children, there are multiplied opportunities to communicate.. and to miscommunicate... and learning to recognize the difference needs to be one of our absolute top priorites.

How to Have a Great College Visit

Making the most of the time
