Simple Formula for Scholarship Success

Simple Formula for Scholarship Success

The secrets of college admission and scholarships are actually pretty easy. Start your research early. Diligently keep your transcripts and course descriptions up to date. Apply early during Senior year. Scholarship money is first-come, first-served, and you want to be first in line! But that means you must have all your ducks in a row before you start the application.

#Simple Formula for Scholarship Success @TheHomeScholarWhat can you do today, so that you are successful?

  1. Start your research on college admission and scholarships now

  2. Create your homeschool transcript

  3. Begin writing course descriptions for every class

  4. Understand the college application process

  5. Apply early for the best chance of scholarships

This kind of planning has some built-in flexibility. If you find out at the last-minute that you need another class, or another test, you can fit that into your schedule. If you know your child needs just a few more points on the SAT or ACT to get a full scholarship, you'll still have time to achieve that goal before the money is all gone.

So get in there! Jump into the pool, the water is great! And the swimming is easy! You just need to learn how to swim early, before the marathon of college application begins!
  Lee - I want to send a thank you to you for your products. I purchased them 4 years ago when my oldest was in 8th grade. I diligently kept up with the transcript each semester as she completed different courses. Now, she is entering her senior year and has already applied to her top two schools. She just heard back two days ago that she was accepted for the fall 2016 to her top school! I was thrilled to put that hefty transcript in the mail, complete with course descriptions, teacher credentials, textbooks used, etc. It was truly a showcase of all her hard work over the past several years. Now she only has to increase her scores on the ACT by a few points for a full merit scholarship. Thank you again for providing your products and services to homeschoolers.  What a blessing they are! ~ Tosha in Virginia

  • The CLT Test Alternative to SAT or ACT

    You're likely familiar with the SAT and ACT tests, but are you familiar with the CLT? I'm not always able to spend as much time as I would like discussing the CLT Test, but I want to be sure parents are aware of this new test. As more colleges accept the test, and more homeschoolers utilize a classical education, it's important for you to

  • Making School Fun

    I tried to incorporate games into our homeschool whenever possible, in order to make school fun. We played math games, art games, and economics games. They would giggle when I wrote on the assignment sheet "Play 30 minutes of Masterpiece" or "Play SAT Game." Making homeschooling fun is a great way to instill the love of learning.
