NCAA Prefers Independent Homeschoolers

NCAA Prefers Independent Homeschoolers
If your child loves sports, and would like to continue in college, it's a good idea to do a little research on the NCAA. The rules change over time, and you have to follow the rules, even if they change. For example, the NCAA recently gave a statement that it will no longer accept coursework from 24 different virtual schools that are affiliated with k12 Inc. Apparently there were concerns about a large dropout rate, some...

How to Put PE on a Homeschool Transcript

How to Put PE on a Homeschool Transcript

Delight Directed Learning - Transcript or Activity List?

I have a daughter that has been in Martial Arts since she's been 11. The last few years she's been helping teach the younger class, but...
