We are living in uncertain times - especially when it comes to homeschooling high school. There are public and private schools that are undecided about how to do school, which is leaving families in limbo about the education of their children.
If you are considering homeschooling high school, or maybe already are homeschooling high school, and need guidance on how to plan, I'm here to help.
You might be thinking about how what we're going through as a nation could affect your child's school and community.
Maybe you're thinking about how homeschooling might affect your child and their chance at going to a good college.
Or, maybe you're focusing on the challenges of planning for high school tests or preparing high school records for your high school student.
All of those are valid and scary things to have to think about. But, they don't have to be because I can help.
You see, knowing that you are thinking about those things takes me back to when I was a homeschool newbie, too. It can be a scary time trying to lay out high school classes AND worry that you are doing it all right!
On August 25, at 1:00pm (Pacific) I am presenting a FREE workshop, Pandemic Plan for Homeschool High School. In it, I will teach you:
This class will be perfect for you if you are considering homeschooling (or currently homeschooling) your pre-junior high or older student and you want to make sure you are doing everything you can to help them succeed in high school, college, and in life.
This online class will help you pull together a solid homeschool high school plan, even during a pandemic, or other circumstances out of your control during these uncertain times. You will discover options you may not have considered and be able to ensure your high school doesn't neglect critical tasks that all homeschool families need to address. You have the ability to safeguard and advance your child's college dreams, even while homeschooling high school.
Homeschooling is home-based and parent-led, where the individuality of the child is top priority. It's something you "get" to do rather than "must" do. I can't tell you how many times my curriculum would arrive for the year and my kids would dive into the boxes of great books to start reading before they even knew their assignments. They would get up early to get their schoolwork done so they could go outside to play. The day-to-day celebration of learning comes in the freedom of homeschooling. Homeschooling is not like online public school, or being tied to a computer or workbooks.
Homeschooling should be and can be less work than public school at home, and more efficient and effective as well. Let my research and experience of getting my own two children full-tuition scholarships help you melt the worry away. I can tell you exactly how homeschooling high school works and how getting into college and getting scholarships is possible.

Games for high school students can make learning more fun. Learning through games requires a careful balance of structure and fun (so the kids don't go crazy) and an amount of teen independence (so the mom doesn't go crazy.) Good thing for you, you're reading this just prior to the holidays! A great pre-holiday shopping guide for the teens in your
Want to learn how to remain sane AND retain skills? When my kids were in middle school and high school, we did just a bit of structured school each day during the summer months. We did a little math, a little writing, a little independent unit study of some sort. No, I'm not crazy – hear me out. A balanced summer makes
What do you do NOW? Junior year is filled with key tasks that must be done in order to successfully get college admission and scholarships submitted. But absolutely NOTHING is normal this year! Juniors should take PSAT/NMSQT®, attend college fairs, prepare for tests, take tests, visit colleges, and choose 4-8 colleges where they will apply during senior year. How is
If you're a homeschool family and have a teen in the house, I'm certain that you've probably had the dreaded discussion ... "When can I learn to drive?"
I remember when I was homeschooling and started thinking about homeschool drivers ed. Sometimes I'd get hung up on ONE small issue that would drive me completely BATTY! I remember wishing for ANYONE
