This week on HSHSP: Homeschooled and Headed for College. This post is running concurrently on Ultimate Homeschool Radio Network.
Many homeschool highschoolers are planning to attend college. How about yours? We know there’s not one right way to homeschool highschool AND there’s not one right way to do life after highschool. Some teens are call right into the workforce, military or missions. Others must go through college.
For teens who are homeschooled and planning for college, we’ve got some helpful information to think about. As experienced homeschool moms and community leaders, we’ve learned some insider tips. What experience do we have?
- We’ve graduated all of our homeschool highschoolers and all the college-interested teens attended a college of their choice.
- Vicki has served as academic advisor for local homeschool upperclassmen, helping hundreds graduate and gain acceptance at a college of their choice.
- Sabrina and Kym have, for decades, taught homeschool co-op and group classes and mentored college-bound students (including writing many, many college reference letters).
- However, we can’t say that Quella the seeing eye puppy has helped many teens get into college yet. Maybe someday…
