Homeschool High School: More than Awesome Transcripts
Now, don’t start feeling guilty if you thought that homeschooling high school is just about your teens earning great transcripts!
We just wanted to share a few ideas that you may already be doing and not giving yourself appreciation for. OR maybe it’s time to think about reframing homeschool high school so that it’s not only a good experience for your teens. It can be a GREAT experience for your teens.
Here are some things that make homeschool high school more than awesome transcripts:
Just like the younger homeschooling years, high school is about relationships:
- Your teens and you
- Your family together
- Your teens and friends
- (AND you and your homeschool mom-friends)
Occasionally review the relationships aspect of your homeschool high school. If you need more time in any of those areas, do some adjustment.
Preparation for life
People joke about millennials becoming successful in their careers but clueless about basic home economics and home maintenance. Homeschool high school is an awesome place to combat that kind of life-preparation neglect. Our teens can make sure they are well prepared in academic AND practical aspects of life.
In my work as a Career Coach, I see lots of teens and young college students who were never exposed to a solid career exploration experience. These young people feel self-doubt, confusion (and change college majors WAY too many times- an expensive habit). Homeschooling high school is the perfect format to do a comprehensive Career Exploration program, including self-awareness, awareness of God’s plans and workings, shadowing, and apprenticeships. Take a look at 7Sisters Homeschool Career Exploration Bundle to meet that need.
Teens are becoming citizens. Homeschooling high school gives you time to prepare them for life as a good citizen:
- In the kingdom of God: They can learn Apologetics (check out our free curriculum)
- In their nation: How to be wise thinkers, righteous do-ers, and faithful voters
- In their communities: How to be givers and servers to make the world a better place
Homeschool high schoolers must concentrate on academics because they need a good transcript, but just as important are the well-rounded life skills that we can give them.
