Senior Year Homeschool and Way Behind!

It can happen; you lose track of time and the next thing you know your child is a high school senior! Parents often feel like they are behind, but don't know what steps to take. If you have a senior and don't know what to do next, let me provide some direction.

Senior Year Homeschool and Way Behind



Look over which classes colleges want to see for admission and determine if there are any holes in your child's transcript that need to be filled. Don't worry about the past, just try to fill holes. For planning help, here is an article about Planning High School Courses. Another article that may help is 9 Easy Steps: High School Graduation Checklist.

After assessing your situation, focus on just two things:  taking the SAT and attending a college fair.

Register for the next available SAT

Write the date on your calendar. If possible, have your child prepare by taking a sample test in advance.

Attend a college fair

Attending a college fair can help your child decide which college is appealing and colleges that may have scholarships available for your child.

After assessing and taking immediate action, scheduling the SAT and a college fair, create a transcript. For help with transcripts, check out The HomeScholar Total Transcript Solution. For $47 you get an audio course about how to make a transcript, an accompanying ebook, a huge variety of templates in Word and Excel to use, and 30 days of help from me. With your purchase, you will also receive one 20-minute private consultation.

I know you are feeling a little bit “behind.” Take these simple steps and you will be right back on track!

Are you feeling behind? Please share in the comments!

LOL, we were on track until my dear child decided to change her choice of career (thanks for the warning that kids do this, Lee). Now we're only a *little* behind. Fortunately, the community college she's already attending (dual enrollment) is now offering 4-year programs. My child is now working with a career counselor before the Fall rush. WOO HOOOOOOOOOOO! So now we need to catch up by researching new colleges and we'll need to pony up a little money to send the SAT scores to different colleges than the ones she picked three months ago. It's all good - I'm glad she did this now before we committed to applying, etc.

Isn't that the way, Jo? You're not alone, I'm sure! Lee writes about this, because teenagers are prone to changing their minds!
