NEWSFLASH! Homeschool Mom Graduates. Son Off to College!

This note was SO encouraging to me, I knew I had to share it with you all.
Hi Lee,

I am taking a few moments to write to you before we send Jacob off to college on Sunday. Lee when I found your website and materials it was such a blessing! I had been struggling to create a transcript using some pretty expensive software and was just not having much success. From the very first time I spoke with you my anxiety level decreased immensely and I was able to create a beautiful document that accurately reflected Jacob's accomplishments. Jacob was especially grateful that you suggest I give him a computer programming credit for the Sudoku problem-solving program and website he developed:) He certainly deserved it but I wasn't looking "outside of the box."

When we went on college visits I took his transcript with us and there was never anything but praise from the college admissions counselors. Jacob was ultimately admitted to the five schools he applied to and received scholarship offers from every school. Since Jacob was named a National Merit Scholarship Finalist he was awarded a 4-year full tuition scholarship to The Ohio State University (Honors Program) where he ultimately decided to attend. He will major in their computer science engineering program.

I hope that other parents who are considering homeschooling high school will realize that it can be done! I know when we were contemplating doing it one of my greatest fears was that I would mess up his life forever and he would not have the opportunities that other students would have. Well that was just simply wrong! Jacob was able to study at his own pace and accomplish quite a bit along the way:) I also feel that I was able to spend precious time with my son that was and will continue to be a blessing for our entire family. That isn't to say that there weren't hard days (weeks, months even!) but we persevered and grew so much along the way!

I can't thank you enough for helping me pull it all together and cheering us across the finish line! I know we'll continue to be in contact over the next two years as Sara begins the process of applying to the military academies. That will be an entirely different experience but I am sure with your materials and support it will be much easier:)

Thanks for everything!

Cassie in Ohio
