Fun Fall Ideas for Kids and Families

Fun Fall Ideas for Kids and Families

As a homeschool family, you have the freedom to use the fall months for special activities related to the season!  I have put together a list of some of my favorite fun fall ideas for kids and their entire families!  I hope you enjoy them!

Fun Fall Ideas for Kids and Families

  1. Thankfulness Jar - Start a new tradition with your family this year, or carry on an old tradition in a new way!
  2.  Glitter Acorns - Apply glitter to acorns then display them in a jar.  Cute and fun!
  3.  Candle Apple Holders - Need a Thanksgiving centerpiece?  Make these as a family!
  4.  Scavenger Hunt - Go on a fall scavenger hunt together and enjoy the beauty.  Use this one or make your own.
  5.  Caramel Apples - Love caramel apples but think they're messy to eat?  Make these together!
  6.  Leaf Art - Do a fall craft together and count art hours for school!
  7.  Apple Picking - Go apple picking together as a family.  A great school outing and you get to eat the results!
  8.  Make a fun Pumpkin Snack - Whether it tastes like pumpkin or looks like a pumpkin, a pumpkin snack can't be beat!
  9.  Rake Leaves - Make a game out of a task that needs to get done.  Rake up the leaves and jump in them or rake them up and make a walking maze out of them.
  10.  Grateful Dinner Rolls - Type up a thing that each person is thankful for and bake them into the dinner rolls.  Make a game of reading them and guessing who wrote each one.
  11.  Go on a Fall Picnic - Pack a picnic and get out and enjoy a trail or a beautiful fall setting.
  12.  Make Applesauce - Enjoy those fresh apples you picked by making applesauce.
  13.  Pumpkin Seed Art - Carve a pumpkin and use the seeds to make an art project!
  14.  Candy Pumpkin Science - Need a science activity?  Candy pumpkins and toothpicks are all you need!
  15.  Go to a Corn Maze - Corn mazes are fun to do together, and if you have older kids, go at night with a flashlight!



I hope you take the time to get out and enjoy the season together as a family.  These activities can be a springboard for all kinds of fun to be had as the leaves change color and the temperatures get cooler!  Enjoy!

You are Not Alone! Homeschool Growth Infographic

You are Not Alone! Homeschool Growth Infographic
Homeschooling is a normal, natural method of education, not some strange or foreign concept. Educating children at home is now a common choice for parents to make. Homeschooling has grown so much since the 70's, and now approximately 3 percent of the school-age population was homeschooled in  2011–12. And since it's growing like crazy, there must be so many more now. So you see? You are NOT alone!

This infographic covers a history of home-schooling beginning in 1977 and discussing trends along the timeline to present. It says that 3.4 percent of school aged children are now homeschooled which has doubled from 1.7 percent in 1999. It illustrates state by state percentages of homes-schooled children, and shows why so many parents have chosen to homeschool. Not surprising, now the most frequent reason being that they are concerned about the environment of schools.

How Do You Say Curriculum? Curricula or Curriculum

How Do You Say Curriculum? Curricula or Curriculum

How Do You Say Curriculum? Curricula or Curriculum


I pride myself on writing the way that I talk, to make my books approachable and easy to understand. I figure the less you work to read my books, the more information you will learn. I know parents have different learning styles, and like to learn in different ways, so I try to provide books, videos, and social-interaction services that will fit everyone's learning style. But to do that... well, let's just say I use colloquial language when writing about curriculum.

Curricula or curriculum?

It's like data and datum. It used to be everyone knew the difference, but now everyone says "data" all the time for everything, now matter how many or how few pieces of information they are talking about. When was the last time you said "datum" in a sentence?

You see, curriculum is actually singular. Curricula is plural. I can count on one hand the number of homeschoolers who have used "curricula" when talking to me. Yup, I know that it's technically incorrect to use "curriculum" when referring to multiples science book options. At the same time, I'm afraid that it will be distracting for parents if I change to curricula or curriculums. Or worse, they will think I'm some hoity-toity, persnickety, post-doctoral educator that judges and evaluates. That's just not me.

When I was homeschooling, I always had my children reading challenging literature, and wanted them to expand their vocabulary. I was trying to increase the range of their understanding, and challenge them so they could interact with college professors intelligently. For my children, I would have chosen a book using the word "curricula" correctly. But when I was homeschooling, I was too busy to read books that slowed me down with their word choice. I had a hard enough time keeping up with the laundry and feeding my family. When authors made it quick for me to read and easy for me to understand, I was thankful.

I'm really, really sorry to the people who are offended when I incorrectly use the colloquial "curriculum".  But I pride myself on writing the way I speak, so it's approachable. Will you still love me anyway?

Which do you prefer? Curricula or curriculum? Does it bother you when an author uses curriculum when it's plural?

What Does Homeschooling Look Like?

What Does Homeschooling Look Like?
What does homeschooling look like? It looks like a child, a book, and a dog, at least in our home! Homeschooling provides a safe and secure learning environment, and a comfortable, relaxing education. Pets are welcome!



There are so many benefits to homeschooling, it’s hard to list them all: rigorous academics, positive socialization, time for specialization ... the list is almost endless. Many families choose homeschooling because they believe the safety and comfort of home is the best learning environment for their children.

Sometimes people ask me, “What does homeschooling look like?”  I usually reply that in our home, it looked like my son lying beside our dog reading a book, or talking to his grandfather about economics. In an environment that is free of fear, children have the security to learn with reckless abandon.

Local public schools in Central Washington have picked up on this idea of creating a safe and comfortable environment for students, by incorporating therapy dogs into the classroom. First-grade teachers there are using man’s best friend as a way to get students to read. The students take turns gathering in small groups around the dogs and read to them from books. One of the dog handlers explained why it works: “Dogs are just very relaxing.” They appear to listen intently and, perhaps most importantly, can’t talk back. Educators say they’re the perfect reading pals for young kids, and medical professionals have long noted that being around dogs tends to lower a person's blood pressure and anxiety. I read that article and I thought, "Wow!  I'm ahead of the curve!" In our homeschool, we had already figured out those lessons, and implemented that educational plan!

Is your homeschool environment relaxing and comfortable? Maybe this new year is an opportunity to get a dog?! Whether you have animals or not, homeschooling offers you the best advantages when it comes to academics, socialization, specialization and security. Whatever the reasons you choose to homeschool, I’m here to help when it comes to high school planning and college preparation.  I’d love to talk with you!



Please note: This post was originally published in January 2013 and has been revamped and updated for accuracy and comprehensiveness.

Meal Planning and Freezer Meals

Meal Planning and Freezer Meals


How do you cope with a busy season of your life? People face difficulties all the time, and so do I. How do you manage to homeschool through challenges? The same way I work through challenges – by planning ahead.

Meal Planning and Freezer Meals


My husband was facing surgery last month, so I planned ahead. I filled my freezer FULL of dinners. I've done this and posted about it before, Gluten-Free + Costco + Freezer Cooking + Crockpot + Cheap = Meals. This time I bought the Costco Meal Plan #5 - 20 Meals for $150 - Gluten Free Freezer Cooking Plan {BASIC PACKAGE} from 5dollardinners.com. This $2.49 printable includes recipes and shopping lists to make 20 freezer meals in advance.  I chose it because the meals look familiar and I just wanted some help pulling it together quickly.

I set aside one day to put the ready-to-go meals in packs in the freezer. My husband and I will have meals to last us almost a month, plus lunches made from leftovers. I have my meal plan all made up. I'll be able to spend time with him as he recuperates, not having to think about what's for supper tonight, knowing that dinner is simmering away in the crock pot, or ready to pop into the oven.

You can plan ahead, too! Make sure you have a plan in place in case things go haywire. You can still homeschool through any challenges. Meal planning and freezer meals can help keep you sane, with just one less thing to think about. Plus, I don't know about you, but I simply feel more secure knowing what I'm making for dinner for the next month, because I'm just not so good at spur of the moment decisions.

How do you plan ahead in your home and homeschool? Do you enjoy meal planning and freezer meals? Please share!

Subject Line - SUCCESS STORY!

Subject Line - SUCCESS STORY!
What a blessing to read about good news! Cynthia wrote to tell me about her marvelous success story! They were able to get their child the college admission and scholarships of her dreams!

Cynthia's Success Story!


 Hi Lee -

I am writing to say thank you and to share our success story with you.

Our eldest (of three) children was just accepted early decision into Lafayette College in Easton, PA! Your resources were invaluable in helping me wade through the application process. I used both your "Total Transcript Solution" and "Comprehensive Record Solution." I so appreciate all the information, directions, and samples provided so that I could customize our son's application to make him stand out. I feel our end product - the transcript, comprehensive records, in addition to the essays he and I both had to write and the recommendations from others - was an outstanding product that helped the college selection committee see our son's academic excellence and also his character, which led them to a decision to admit him to their institution.

I recommend your materials to all homeschoolers who have high school students, and I also agree with your suggestions that homeschoolers with younger students should also begin to learn all about keeping records before their children are in high school. I find myself almost looking forward to creating the transcripts and records for our two younger children!

Blessings and joy as you and your family!

In Christ,

Cynthia in NJ

Listen, if you are new to the whole "high school thing" just take it one step at a time. If you are a true beginner, or looking at homeschooling for the first time, look at my Getting Started Page. If you are ready to have your own success story about homeschooling high school, then check out some of my preview classes on my Homeschool Freebies Page. And if you would appreciate some support along the way, consider joining the Gold Care Club for $67 per month. The Gold Care Club has 5 recorded classes, a live webinar, tools, template, scholarships and resources that change monthly - and you can learn independently that way. But with the Gold Care Club you also get personalized support if you like, with a consultation for 20 minutes every week, by phone or by email. Plus it's just plain fun to talk to another homeschool mom who understands!

5 Steps for Safe and Sane Internet Use

5 Steps for Safe and Sane Internet Use

How much internet is too much internet?


Our families are surrounded by electronic devices. Our TV can connect to the internet. We have a computer, laptop, smart phones, tablets, and gaming devices.


In the midst of our tangled electronic cables, how can you keep your kids safe and sane, without ruining their life or sheltering them too much? What can you do?


Here are 5 Steps for Safe and Sane Internet Use



1. Lead by example, and demonstrate responsible behavior in your own internet usage, whether online, playing games, on your phone, or using social media.


2. Keep the computer in a public place to avoid inappropriate behaviors and assess potential problems.


3. Install filters and monitoring software, knowing these devices alone can't keep your children safe.


4. Turn off the internet at night to prevent sneaking around to use the internet, or sleep interruptions caused by nighttime use.


5. Set up internet free times, so your family will know how to have fun even without electronic devices of any kind.

Tips for New Empty Nesters

Tips for New Empty Nesters


Tips for New Empty Nesters


I found a marvelous collection of articles for parents that are sending their children off to college and becoming empty nesters. Check these out and let me know what you think!

 Tips for First-Years


This article has some tips on how to stay in touch with your child. What I loved even more, though, was this list: 

3 Simple Steps for Academic Success

Go to class.
Do all of the homework and reading.
Get extra help if you're having trouble understanding the subject matter. Don't wait until midterms or the final exam to try to get help.



First Year in Five Stages


This describes the five stages of peaks and valleys that kids experience during their first year of college.

Stage 1: The Honeymoon
Stage 2: Culture Shock
Stage 3: Initial Adjustment
Stage 4: Homesickness or Loss of Confidence
Stage 5: Acceptance and Integration



 Sending Your Kid Away to College


 I love the part of this article, where they talk about the "stress dump." The author says children will call out of the blue to unload on their parents about college problems. "Kids will often call their parents and do what we call the ‘stress dump’ to unload their frustrations." It's uncomfortable to be dumped on, sure, but knowing it's normal and expected can help. 

If you are facing the Empty Nest - hang in there! It WILL get better!
If you are Empty Nesters already, what has it been like so far? Are you adjusting?

Political Conversations: Civics Must Be Caught AND Taught

Political Conversations: Civics Must Be Caught AND Taught


What if your homeschool students swayed the political majority? What if they all learned how to vote, and then actually showed up at the polls and voted their conscience. What marvelous things would result!

Let me tell you a little secret. You can’t just "teach" kids to vote. It's one of those things that is caught as well as taught. They have to see you consistently voting, no matter how inconvenient the timing or how boring the election. You have to make political conversations part of your routine.

Here is what I suggest.

 1. Read the voter guide in front of your children.

Avoid This One Fatal Flaw When Teaching High School English

Avoid This One Fatal Flaw When Teaching High School English


High School English can include so MANY things that it can be overwhelming! You can teach communication skills, spelling, grammar, vocabulary, punctuation, penmanship, composition reports, poetry, prose, reading skills, reading for pleasure, classical literature, non-fiction, reading aloud, speed reading, comprehension, public speaking, speech and debate, American Literature, British Literature, Great Books, literary analysis, essay writing, research, proof-reading, timed essays, sentence structure, paragraph outline, mythology, fables, capitalization, punctuation, parts of speech, dialogue, word choice, editing, novel writing, short stories, lyrics, iambic pentameter, haiku, expository writing, narrative writing, summarizing, creative writing, note taking, persuasive writing, literature appreciation, bibliography, biography, themes, Shakespeare, irony, listening skills, comprehension, character, setting, rhetoric, Socratic dialog.


When I considered all my options, it felt like a giant collage of guilt, weighing me down, and draining my love of homeschooling. That's because in my thinking I made one fatal flaw.

I felt like I should be doing all these things in the first month of school during freshman year! 

It can seem overwhelming - I know that! But you must know the truth. You can’t do everything. You can’t do it all in one year. Focus on what is important: reading and writing. The goal of high school English is clear communication. There are many ways to get there, not everything needs to be covered by all children, and there are many paths to get you where you need to go.

Repeat after me: "I can't do it all, and I can't do it all in one year."

Cheap and Easy High School Record Keeping

Cheap and Easy High School Record Keeping


Use the "Binder Queen Method" of record keeping.

My favorite method of record keeping is not a product you buy, it's reasonably price and easy to assemble.  I recommend a simple 3 ring binder, divider tabs, and lined notebook paper. Super-smart moms might want "college ruled" paper, but that is completely optional!

I have seen far to many moms buy the latest and greatest record keeping, and then not use it. It doesn't matter what you BUY, you know! Yup, you actually have to use something in order to be successful with record keeping.

But here is the cheap and easy way to keep records.

Set up


Buy a three-ring notebook.

Insert dividers.


Make 1 divider for each class you intend to teach this year.
Make 1 divider for things required by your state law.
Make a divider for test results and your reading list.
Insert 1 lined notebook paper behind each divider.

Suggestions for dividers: English, Math, Social Studies, Science, Foreign Language, Physical Education, Fine Art, Electives, Test Results, Reading List, State Requirements

Maintenance


Every time you give a test or quiz, write the test number and score on the paper.
For classes without tests, write a list of books read, field trips, or experiences
Every time you create papers of some kind, write the kind of paper, or essay name, on the paper.
Insert all tests, quizzes and papers into the divider section behind your note paper summary
Keep a copy of textbook cover and table of contents

Use


The divider tabs will tell you what to put on your transcript
The contents behind each binder tab will be the details you include on your course descriptions
If you didn't start or complete a class you intended to teach, throw out that section like it never happened.
As long as you keep records and create a transcript, course description, and reading list, you are a success!  

What cheap and easy way do you keep records?

Happy Customers

I am so so so thankful to God for you. I spent the morning becoming confused and in despair over math and science next year. I was reading a homeschool forum trying to decide what to do for science next year. Some of the moms had the idea that you HAD to do certain things or your child's college career, not to mention life, would be ruined if you didn't do things a certain way. I finally... Read More

THANK YOU. My daughter applied online to the university of her first choice. She had to send in a copy of her transcript.

Your latest newsletter is very inspiring. I liked the curriculum article and the straightforward tips on how to sort through all the various choices available.

We've been talking about it, and I told him that not only am I impressed with your materials, and not only was... Read More

Thank you, Lee, for making me feel like I can teach high school and prepare them for college. You have really made me feel that this stage of my home schooling journey is doable.

The FEAR has been alleviated (THANKS to you!!) The audios were incredibly insightful and PACKED full of information! The ebook was the most VALUABLE tool I've seen on the nuts and bolts of transcripts! You literally answered EVERY question that came to mind. I know I will refer to it often. You are a blessing indeed.

I want to highly recommend Lee's services to anyone who has questions about the high school years! I had a consultation with her yesterday and it was so helpful and amazing to watch the transcript fill before my very eyes. I think as homeschoolers we can be VERY critical of our little schools and I didn't even realize how much was learned last year. Lee's service is truly a blessing and her rates... Read More

You have taken an enormous amount of information and put it into bite-sized pieces so that the homeschooling parent can learn the information and process without becoming overwhelmed and frustrated–that goes for beginner homeschool high school parents and those of us who have been at it awhile. And you speak in the videos like a girlfriend who is going through all the same stuff with me! I... Read More

Lee Binz is a genius at taking complex information and making it simple. She simplified the information in a fun and quite comical way. I felt so empowered!

Long time fan - I used your book to help my eldest get a full tuition scholarship! Your ideas work! Child #2 is a bit more free form in her learning, so I'm hoping to refine my course description skills to help her as best I can. Thank you!

Your kind words written back to me filled my heart with joy!! I appreciate that you took the time to read what I wrote. That really tells me that you are 100% invested in your business, but I already had that impression anyway!

I received so much wonderful help and support from Lee over the years. I'm pleased with how the whole home school journey has turned out.

I want to thank you for "Getting the BIG Scholarships". It was very helpful, informative, insightful and practical in its advice and real world application. Now we are armed with the insider information we need to make our son's scholarship applications stand out above the crowd and get noticed!

I seriously thank you both as you have made all the difference for our son. I was prepared to send him away next year for high school because I had lost hope, was so scared and my vision had become cloudy. But I have praising God that I found your site a few days ago and now I know I can do this.

I just wanted to say 'thank you SO much' once again for all your help and input. I don't know if this adequately expresses how appreciated your wise counsel is and what a help it's been to me. I would be fumbling and procrastinating if I had not ordered your transcript e-book and become a member of your Gold Care Club. I'm so glad my husband said OK to letting me stay on as a member. It's funny... Read More

What you do is a wonderful ministry.  I gleaned wonderful insights from your seminars at the convention.

But now, I'm more encouraged, more energized and more motivated than ever before, thanks to you.   I'll be... Read More

Your webinar has certainly bailed me out! This is for my son who was not interested in any more schooling and then suddenly changed his mind after graduation. I had started to buy your program, but after seeking help with our homeschool group they told me not to bother with a transcript. I will be telling everyone in our group to at least take your webinar on transcripts. I agree this should be... Read More

Thank you so much for the wealth of information that you share! You have given me the knowledge and courage to do more than I ever felt possible, especially the ability to maneuver the high school transcript and college application process. Our daughter was accepted to all six schools to which she applied. She was offered various scholarships to each of them, and she received a full four-year... Read More

Dear Lee,

I attended the North Carolina Homeschool Conference several years ago when you were speaking. My daughter was just beginning High School and I felt lost. You were wonderful! I left the conference feeling energized and encouraged. I read your books, watched your Youtube videos and your DVDs. I can't tell you how often we used your advise in Dual Enrollment, college visits,... Read More

Your homeschool transcripts and records were the best organized and documented I have seen.

Your book, 'Setting the Record Straight' helped me compose my own unique transcript and course description document. Mine did not look like any of the examples in your book, but as you encouraged in your book, I found my very own style.

My daughter was not only accepted to the one and only school she applied, but she was offered the highest scholarship they award and invited to join their... Read More

Lee, you are THE BEST homeschool encourager!!!! You are a tremendous blessing to homeschoolers and I am telling my friends to check out your site and your terrific resources---I wish I told some of them sooner.

You helped me out a couple of years ago, and assisted me with a high school transcript for my son Landon. I was just beginning to deal with some brain tumors and several surgeries and so appreciated your help. Things are still not as easy for me as they used to be and I did very little homeschooling with my then 13 year old Austyn that 2008-2009 school year. I thought I would give you an update...

One of the major reasons I'm no longer anxious about homeschooling high school is because I've had the benefit of reading Lee Binz's book "Setting the Records Straight," as well as her many other wonderful resources. Her examples, encouragement, and insights will equip you to translate your homeschooled student's experiences into the language that college admissions officers understand.

Thank you so much for sharing your personal journey, expertise, and encouragement! Our family knows that homeschooling is exactly where God wants us, but sometimes, while it seems we're trudging through the trenches, your advice is exactly what God uses to keep me focused and productive. Homeschooling 3 high schoolers and having two preschoolers, keeps me pretty much permanently logged in to your... Read More

I have purchased all Lee’s solutions and am a Gold Care Club member. I am so appreciative of the quality and caliber of the recommendations from the HomeScholar! I recommend Lee Binz and The HomeScholar to all my friends planning on homeschooling through high school.

"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the great webinar yesterday. It was a great blessing to me. I was feeling a bit intimidated by high school and was planning to find a diploma program, because I just didn't know how to do it on my own. But you have given me such confidence and even excitement about it. I now feel that I can stay true to who we are as a homeschool family, rather... Read More

I loved the way you compared "finding a college" to finding "the love of your life." That really put a perspective on college hunting that I hadn't thought of before. Your step-by-step outline of the process used to help your sons' find a college is straight-forward and easy to understand. How I wish I'd had this information when I was helping my two oldest daughters find colleges. This... Read More

I have loved all of your work, ideas, and especially Lee's coaching me through the homeschool transcript and college issues process. You helped daughter get accepted into 11 colleges and helped her get a partial scholarship. You helped us receive guidance for other important college issues, for which we are most appreciative. And thank you, Lee. so very much for your excellent coaching with... Read More

I loved Finding a College.  It was so helpful, so much great information!  You shared many of the concerns that I had about college. I see so many "so called" Christian Colleges/University's that are no different than a secular school.  That concerns me.   I will continue to pray, I know God can always change things, but that was really neat.

Thank you so much for this info and for talking with me today. Your personal experiences that you shared with me, along with all the information, really helps a lot. Thanks for listening also. I tend to talk a lot, so it is refreshing to find someone who actually listens and thinks some of what I have to say is worth listening to. One thing during our conversation that I meant to mention was how... Read More

Thank you for the wealth of information you provide on your website. I was reading your article on record keeping. I am one of those "What??!!! I didn't know I had to keep records!" people. I really appreciate all your help! You are the BEST!!!

I have really enjoyed having your support in our journey through homeschooling. I especially enjoy the online workshops! I am so happy that I've made this purchase and have no regrets. You are a blessing in our lives. Thanks again.

The girls applied to various schools' Engineering departments and were accepted to every one. After visiting all schools, they finally decided to accept Florida Institute of Technology's admission offer. They received full tuition scholarships from FIT, including the highest award for Florida Bright Futures. Their transcript and course description documents were extensive, so thank you again...

During the registration process, one of the representatives stopped me and said, 'Your documents for your son were amazing. We would like to use them as a model for others, as they were really helpful for us and especially for homeschoolers!' Of course, I followed the Comprehensive Record Solution that you provide, and heard about your success with the admission process…. but never expected to... Read More

I just wanted you to know that while I have enjoyed your program very much, and that you have answered all of my transcript questions.

I followed the principles that you teach and our son has received selection to the Air Force Academy! He also received full scholarships for his second and third choice. Thank you for your passion and for making the information you share available to everyone! We are very grateful!

Hi Lee, It's been ages since we've spoken, but I have been thinking about our family's homeschool experiences and of course, you came to mind! We would never have changed our decision to homeschool our three daughters, we would, however, signed up as a Gold Care Member, much sooner! This year, we will be attending another University Graduation, as all three of our daughters are receiving their... Read More

Thank you for taking the time to talk with me today. I will continue to educate myself and check out all the links you emailed me. I look forward to calling you again. I absolutely appreciate and love your service. You are the answer to my prayer on where to begin to learn about homeschooling high school. Thank you.

I am writing to say thank you and to share our success story with you. Our was just accepted early decision into College!

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions at the conference. I’ve been praying for an answer to my unique needs in homeschooling my oldest son.

Lee, I couldn’t have done it without you and I give thanks to God for leading me to you!! Thank you for all your help and coaching over the last two years, I feel so thankful and blessed!!

I’ve always considered myself a manly kind of dad…but after reading Lee Binz’s book, my fears were confirmed that I’ve been a little afraid of the college scene. Perhaps it’s because of my own college experience or what I see now at colleges, but I wasn’t convinced college is a good thing. Lee helped calm my fears, reassured my inner-dad, and walked me through the whole process.... Read More

I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your audio workshops. I often listen to them on my iPod while I walk in the mornings or on my computer while I’m making dinner. They offer such practical, in-depth advice, and such an affordable product.

I have been so blessed by your newsletters, website, and the Total Transcript Solution. Last October, my daughter was accepted and awarded the highest academic scholarship from all four of the private Christian colleges she applied to. Two of those universities invited her to compete for “up to full-tuition scholarships,” and in early April, she was awarded the Presidential Honors... Read More

I found Lee Binz while searching the internet. My husband and I set up an appointment with Lee.  Talk about hand holding! It was just what I needed. She answered all my questions about SAT, ACT, CLEP, AP, and PSAT testing. She helped me set up a plan for the next four years. It was wonderful. The best part? My husband and I left the meeting as a team. Even today I still feel 100% better about... Read More

I’ve been a Gold Care Club member for a long time and it has been invaluable to me. I wanted to thank you! My son is away at college in his second semester of freshman year. He is doing great and although the course work is rigorous, he is WELL prepared for college. Many people in my life would question... Read More

Real live samples, like the sample Course Description and Grades and Credits Resource sheet, really clarify things and give homeschoolers a starting point in creating their own, which is very helpful! The “Record Keeping” section was very good too. This topic and the way you present it would be extremely useful for parents new to homeschooling high school. I was impressed by your knowledge...

Lee understands the struggles that mothers face when they take on the challenge of homeschooling through the high school years. But more than that, she knows how to point moms back to Jesus. Lee is right. Homeschooling is a gift. Your kids may drive you crazy from time to time … and that’s okay. Let the challenges push you closer to Jesus.

You guys on the support staff are really fantastic, I have never had better customer service. It is a rarity in this day and age sometimes.

I ran across a story in an article that referenced how much Lee Binz had helped the author with homeschooling high school, so I decided to give her a call. She had a special “Gold Club” membership which included access to her resources, a special email address, and a 20-minute phone consultation with her once a week to pick her brain about any questions or concerns I might have. I decided to... Read More

The admissions officer told her that one of the factors in their decision to give her the scholarship and the invitation were her impressive homeschool transcript and course descriptions!!

With your guidance and the Total Transcript package my daughter got into her top school choice and was offered enough scholarships that they would be paying her each semester.

I just had to write to let you know that my daughter received the Regent's Scholarship for Pepperdine University! This is a $40,700 annual award. I am still in shock daily. We found out a week ago, and it has taken this long for it to actually sink in. Of course this is after hours and hours of work on both of our parts, my daughter writing countless essays and filling out applications, and... Read More

I am finished with the transcript!! Thank you so much for all your help and guidance with the Total Transcript Solution.

The last 2 years of high school, she really grew up and figured out how to get her... Read More

Lee is an expert in homeschool transcripts. Many people send me things to review but Lee's stuff really grabbed me. I said 'this is a like minded person.

I strongly recommend this book to all homeschooling parents who think that college might be in their child’s future. It not only demystifies the process of college preparation, it will also put you at ease as you help your child make one of the most important decisions of their young life.

You can count me as a completely satisfied customer.  The Total Transcript Solution made the process a pleasure.  Our transcript was a wonderful summary of the rich educational experience a home school education can provide.  We translated my son’s home school experience into the language schools can understand, and obviously love!

This information is so much more than I ever could have hoped for from anyone! You're truly providing a wonderful service. Thank you so much for your help. I had this little voice in my head telling me I needed to keep great records through middle school, so I have been doing it right along. Glad to know it can work for his high school transcripts. Thank you for your words of wisdom. You've... Read More

I knew I had to prepare transcripts for college admission, and my son had taken the SAT, but I knew NOTHING about what I should be doing to prepare for college admissions.

It really made for a more professional look. You are providing a service much needed by many. Her scholarship will be paying for four years of tuition, out-of-state fees, room/board, book stipend as well as $5000 toward a month summer abroad program. Thank you again for all that I learned through your services.

Thank you for the help The Total Transcript Solution gave me during my son’s senior year… he graduated last June and this was a huge life line for me to preparing his transcripts! Boy do I wish I had this information and all of these resources when he was in middle school, it sure would have made this so much quicker and easier! This did it’s job!! I am constantly telling others that this... Read More

After getting over the shock of scholarships, my first thought was 'Thank you Lee!' It wouldn't have happened without the Comprehensive Records and encouragement from you!

In April, my homeschooled senior daughter was applying to a very competitive specialty summer college program at a major Ivy League university. I had to come up with a really professional looking transcript, FAST, and I was really dreading it.

However, I ordered your Homeschool Total Transcript Solution and it was all you said it was! I was able to write brief course descriptions and find... Read More

I'm feeling all sorts of feelings - panic, insecure, frustrated that I'm not done with all the paperwork, etc. I uncovered a pile of my school related record keeping items and discovered your book Finding the Faith to Homeschool High School. I randomly opened to page 85 and read about The Great Pause. Thank you for writing this book. I read about 20 pages and I felt like you were exactly... Read More

I thought I would also take this chance to thank you for your assistance with my daughter’s transcript and course descriptions. The information that I learned in your book, seminars, and talking with you personally gave me the confidence and knowledge to create a solid presentation of records. My daughter received multiple scholarship offers. She turned down a full tuition scholarship at one... Read More

Even though I am in the field of education, finding a plan for homeschooling high school and preparing good college transcripts was not easy. Then I came across Lee’s website and everything changed.

Your presentation was FABULOUS and fills a GAPING need in the homeschooling community. You teach people how to take their unique homeschooling experience and translate it into a college-prep program. What a gift!! You helped bring clarity and focus to areas that needed attention. I absolutely can't wait to get my hands on your college series. I will buy anything you produce!

I'm just a grateful mom who wouldn't do without Lee's continued valuable help at this point in my homeschool career! I still have two in high school so I have a ways to go and I still depend on her wisdom and wonderful resources for those of us who are homeschooling through high school. Lee's input enabled me to prepare a "Comprehensive High School Record" for my son which allowed me to present... Read More

We have been accepted to almost every University we applied for, most with scholarships. I believe your transcript and Comprehensive Records was one of the key factors. I spoke to several schools, public and private, and they found the transcript excellent. I think your records helped us convince them we were worth investing in! What a sanity relief your webinars are! "You do make them look good... Read More

Thank you for your resources on the Gold Care Club. I now feel confident that with your help and resources I can do it on my own and make her transcript for her, thanks to you. I feel so supported being able to ask you questions each week.

You provide a much needed service. I must tell you that I've spent the past three hours going over all the materials and still haven't exhausted all that you offer. Your service is an answer to prayer. It's very late, (nine hours ahead of west coast time) so I must close but I will be contacting you soon. Thank you for providing a first-rate service.

As these kids were going through their high school years, my homeschool mentor, Lee Binz, helped me realize that seeing their individuality and capitalizing on this as well as their strengths and passions was the ticket to helping each of them gain entry into their next chapter of life. I am so thankful for the instruction, solid support, and mentorship that the HomeScholar provided to me as I... Read More

I have seen no other site on the web better equipped than yours to help homeschooling high school students, and I will be telling others nothing but good things about your site.

I have spent many months getting up... Read More

Lee is extremely professional and relevant to homeschooling. All her tips and recommendations are clearly explained and ideas I wouldn't have considered. The voice of experience (successful experience at that) is *always* valuable!

In applying for the summer institutes I used your model to the best of my ability. I watched the videos enough to have them pretty much set to memory. I plan on putting together a complete comprehensive record ASAP. I want to have available my son’s accomplishments in a neat and presentable package. Without you, our homeschool would not be as organized record keeping and academically, and my... Read More

I'm good at organizing and planning I just needed some direction. Some help. After I bought it, I... Read More

I’d like to thank Lee for helping me gain the confidence I needed to start teaching high school this year. Instead of timidly requesting information from various sources I simply devoured everything I could find on her web site and spoke to her several times as part of a Gold Care Club membership. I cannot stress enough how empowering it is to have this important information up front! I am not... Read More

Thank you so, so much for all that you are doing. I have needed support like you offer for a number of years now. It has felt like we've been going on to the end all alone. Now I feel supported. I am just nervous to call or email you for help. One of these days I will be brave. Thank you, again. You are one of my heroes.

I love Lee Binz!!!! So full of valuable information, support and inspiration! The Gold Club was very worthwhile! I appreciated the opportunity to have those weekly phone calls with her when I had specific questions. She is awesome! Everything I have bought through her program has been a worthwhile and valuable purchase.

There is so much here to value. The course descriptions are absolutely wonderful! I absolutely love it when I realize that we are taking a class that you have already outlined for us. The different options on the transcript is also great, especially when you have kids with early high school credit.

I want to give a little testimony and some kudos to YOUI I compiled my beautiful spiral-bound booklet of course descriptions, reading lists, awards & activities, and sample work for my son Sam a few weeks ago. It had a nice cover page, complete with table of contents (which was the most difficult to do of the entire thing!). It was total about 80 pages. It looked professional, and honestly,... Read More
