Online College or Diploma Mill?

Online College or Diploma Mill?
Have ever heard of Western Governors University? It's an all online non-profit college. And, if so, then any opinions would be great. ~Christine Dear Christine,I haven't heard of it before. For an all-online college, I would lean heavily on a college with a reputable brick-and-mortar presence (like Thomas Jefferson, Regent University in Virginia, etc) or a college that comes highly recommended by CollegePlus!  There is a risk of stumbling upon a diploma mill otherwise, which can...

Convention "must-haves" list

Convention "must-haves" list
Michele was kind enough to send me a note about how my book Setting the Records Straight has encouraged her in the last year.  She met me at the Midwest Homeschool Convention in Cincinnati last year. I already have the "Setting the Records Straight" book (and love your fun photos), but I can pass the coupon along to someone else.  I've talked other homeschoolers into buying this book for themselves, and actually a few other parents...

Living Books for Homeschool College Preparation
Cori and I chatted about literature-based curriculum, and she had a follow up question about using living books. Lee, you wrote: "We used a literature based curriculum for high school, and my children read TONS of books in high school.   What does literature-based learning look like in the REAL world, where parents are faced with the demands of homeschooling, housework, and household economics?"   Where should I look to find out exactly how you did this please? ...

Going to College? Invest In Wisdom

Going to College?  Invest In Wisdom
I was reading through Proverbs, looking for some direct instruction about finances, and I stumbled upon something very interesting.  Read these scripture verses, and see if you notice a theme: Blessed is the man who finds wisdom,the man who gains understanding,for she is more profitable than silverand yields better returns than gold. (Proverbs 3:13-14) Choose my instruction instead of silver,knowledge rather than choice gold (Proverbs 8:10) How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose...

College Scholarships Result From Preparation

College Scholarships Result From Preparation
My client Ann just heard that her son was admitted to his first choice college, accepted into the honors program, and awarded a $14,000. It's so exciting to see her having such great success while it's only mid-October! The first awards you hear about are often just the beginning, and I'm sure the family has more aid coming.  Need based money and more specific scholarships come later, but this is a great, great start! I know...

Consumer Math or Algebra 2?

Consumer Math or Algebra 2?
Traci asks:  Our daughter has taken Algebra I and Geometry.  She would really like to take Consumer Math, and begin a small online business, instead of taking Algebra II.  My question is:  How does this look to colleges?  It seems that when I look at what everyone else is doing, they always include those 3 maths. Tracy,If your daughter wants to go to college, then Algebra 2 would be very important.  It's extremely helpful to take...
