Set Your Priorities for Freshman and Sophomore Years

Set Your Priorities for Freshman and Sophomore Years

Set your priorities for freshman and sophomore years. Consider what you have to do in order to be ready for college even if your child isn’t planning on it, just in case your child chooses to go.

Know your local homeschool laws and how they apply to homeschooling high school. When you look at homeschool laws, they are not usually the same laws that apply to public schools. In most states, the law will detail what applies to public schools, what applies to private schools, and what applies to homeschooling - all separately.

When you see in your local news that the high school requires 100 hours of community service and a technology class, it probably does not apply to you as a homeschooler. You may choose to cover these things, but it's probably not a homeschool requirement. Homeschool requirements are found in your state’s homeschool law. Don’t panic over the local high school graduation requirements - get acquainted with your local homeschool law.

As you start homeschooling 9th and 10th grade, you are learning how to homeschool high school. Take it one step at a time. Keep good records, right from the start. Everything you keep is part of your child’s official, lasting record.

Start looking ahead to college and understand that college preparation usually involves more than what is required for public high school graduation. By providing college prep to your child, you're exceeding public high school requirements. Looking ahead to college is going to give you a better-educated child.
