Homeschool High School Graduation 2011: Delight Directed Learning Success!

Do you know what makes successful homeschool graduates?  Delight directed learning!  Listen to Elena's story of her son.

Hi Lee,
My homeschooled Senior is Sam. During high school he has taken piano lessons for 4 years, organ for 2, sung in the church choir and gone to competition with them twice, been active in the youth group and played on the homeschool soccer league. He taught himself guitar before starting classical guitar with private lessons. He started a band with his 15-year-old brother and the girl next door and they won a local Battle of the Bands last week! He is currently enrolled in College Plus, has 6 credits (hoping to make that 12 by next week!) These last few months he has also worked part time delivering pizzas.

Wow!  Piano, organ, choir, guitar, classical guitar, and band?  I'm impressed!  I notice that kids who love arts tend to have a LOT of fine arts credits.  That's what makes them stand out and shine!

If you need help putting delight directed learning on a transcript, this article will help: Delight Directed Learning. This article is an excerpt taken from Chapter 10 of my book, “Setting the Records Straight: How to Craft Homeschool Transcripts and Course Descriptions for College Admission and  Scholarships” available on Amazon.  If you would like to discuss the Delight-Directed Learning of your own child to determine how it can be used for high school credit, we can talk about it together if you want to join my Gold Care Club.

  • College Coach for $70,000 - Seriously?!

     Have you ever considered hiring a college coach? 

    In 2017, the average cost to hire a college  coach was between $4000 and $6000. And some cost more... much more! Avery was taken aback when she saw a college admission coach advertising services for $70,000. Most homeschoolers don't have that kind of money. Which is why Avery was so shocked.
