When you look at homeschooling high school the first rule of thumb is NOT to panic! You are completely capable of doing this! Your child has been given to you and you have what it takes to do the work. This is a completely doable task. I am here to strengthen your ability to homeschool high school and encourage you in your journey.
The secret of your success will be the love you have for your child. The love of your child will lead you in what they need to know, how they learn, what they are missing, and how to prepare them for the future. Love won't teach you calculus, but you don't need to know calculus in order to homeschool high school. Instead, the love of your child will motivate you to find a way for it them to learn. Love will urge you to seek resources and curriculum choices for homeschooling high school that will fit your child.
I'd like to introduce you to my Bookshelf of resources. In it, you'll find my most popular books that will help you in all areas of your homeschool. There are big resource books and my Coffee Break Books. In case you aren't familiar with them, my Coffee Break Books series is designed especially for parents who don't want to spend hours and hours reading a 400-page book on homeschooling high school. This series combines a practical and friendly approach with detailed, but easy-to-digest information, perfect to read over a cup of coffee at your favorite coffee shop! Never overwhelming, always accessible and manageable, each book in this series will give parents the tools they need to tackle the tasks of homeschooling high school, one warm sip at a time.

Of course you can buy all of these individually on Amazon (you can find all of my books on Amazon here
) but you can get a discount by ordering them all together here! In addition to the paperbacks, I try very hard to provide information in a variety of formats, so that every parent can get the information in a way that's accessible for them, using their learning style. You can get my books on Kindle, as well. Buy, download, read, and enjoy! Your step-by-step process for getting affordable resources to help you homeschool high school.
Once you've read my books, I'd love for you to leave me a review on Amazon. I really appreciate the reviews I get on Amazon. If you have purchased one of my books, could you please go back and leave a review? Like Jen wrote to me the other day, " I know The HomeScholar is your business, but honestly, it's like a ministry as well." And it's true! If you would like to contribute to the ministry side of my business, I'd love to see your review, and I'd love for you to share my information on your social media, too.
If you're more of a 'do-everything-online' kind of person, you might enjoy my online resources. Find all of these helpful resources for homeschooling high school here.

- Psalm 139:13-16
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." What a comfort to know that God has provided this whole arrangement. You will succeed at homeschooling high school, because your child has been given to you - because God knew in advance this day would come. He knew what you needed for this day, and he can provide.
- Philippians 4:13
"I can do all things through Him who strengthens me." Again, you are completely capable of doing this and God promises to strengthen you when we call on Him. Hang in there, stay strong, and move forward with God's help in all things.
- 1 Peter 4:8
"Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins." Of course you won't purposefully sin against your child. But, sometimes we can beat ourselves up over our missteps in how we treat our child or for not choosing the 'right' curriculum. Take heart. The love you have will cover the difficulties you face. You will fail at some small tasks, because we all fail at small tasks every day. Even high-powered professional executives will fail at small tasks regularly. But we will succeed at the big task: raising and educating our child.
You will be successful. Don't be afraid to move forward in your homeschool journey. Let me know if I can help.
