There’s nothing more stressful to parents than worrying about college admission and scholarship earnings. Many parents question whether it’s even possible to find a college that is satisfying to both parent and child, a college that will love their student and offer them scholarships to attend. And yet every year at about this time, I'm flooded with letters from successful parents and students. It doesn't happen by accident. Success depends on your involvement, and some hard work on the part of the student. Sadly, you can't just waive your hand or wiggle your nose to get the chore of applications done. You have to actually DO the work. But success is possible, and parents like you are successful all the time. Check out this success story!
"Lee, you are AWESOME. My two daughters are at a University, with financial aid and an academic scholarship that I fully credit to your Setting the Records Straight and other transcript making materials! I tell EVERYONE who asks, "I just did exactly what Lee (www.HomeHighSchoolHelp.com) said to do!" Not ONLY did the college LOVE my records, my oldest daughter (the year before) was accepted into a Skype-in high school, with all her homeschool high-school work transferring into their school. She was even able to graduate from the three-hours-away brick and mortar high school all BECAUSE of following Lee's transcript instructions. A Public Charter High school accepting a homeschooler's work! That is unheard of! Our whole family went down and she marched with 85 other kids. It was wonderful. Lee's materials are a GIFT! The University LOVED her transcript and was HAPPY to accept her and gave her an academic scholarship, on top of her FAFSA grants. She is majoring in Engineering and LOVES college! We are so grateful for all of Lee's materials! Thank you, LEE!" ~Dana
