Homeschooling High School: To Teach or To Learn - What is Your Goal?

As homeschool parents, our goal is NOT to teach something. Our goal is for the kids to LEARN. I could have taught my kids “at grade level” and they would have not learned a thing. Instead, I gave them curriculum at their ability level, and then they had to learn something that they didn’t already know. I believe that older teens MUST learn how to teach themselves. If they go to college, they will be expected...

Homeschooling High School: Should my child take the PSAT in 9th grade?

A 9th grader *can* take the PSAT, but I almost never recommend it. The PSAT can be taken at a local public or private high school. The PSAT is a VERY cheap test, and if testing is required by state law, it can usually meet that requirement.  However, the PSAT does have Geometry and Algebra 2.  It can be very discouraging for a kid to take a test and not have any chance of getting a...

The Validity of High School Diplomas - Encouragement for Homeschoolers

HSLDA reports that colleges are now required to determine the validity of high school diplomas from public and private schools. How exactly can the college determine validity?  Will they be requiring course descriptions from every applicant?  That would be a lot of reading for the admissions team.  Homeschool parents often think about their own transcripts and validity.  Yes, you are valid!  Isn't it interesting that public and private high schools are now having the same concerns...

The Relative Importance of Homeschool Transcripts and Standardized Tests

"How important is the transcript compared to SAT or ACT scores when it comes to college admissions or scholarships? I know it is good to have both but without those great scores it seems like all is lost."~ Anne on FacebookHi Anne!The transcript is extremely important. It's the one page overview of your student so the college can give them a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" quickly. It's a good idea to have some outside documentation...
