NCAA Prefers Independent Homeschoolers

NCAA Prefers Independent Homeschoolers
If your child loves sports, and would like to continue in college, it's a good idea to do a little research on the NCAA. The rules change over time, and you have to follow the rules, even if they change. For example, the NCAA recently gave a statement that it will no longer accept coursework from 24 different virtual schools that are affiliated with k12 Inc. Apparently there were concerns about a large dropout rate, some...

What About College?

What About College?
It’s a common question, frequently posed by skeptical friends and  loved ones. When homeschooling high school, the question “what about college? ” becomes more pressing. Intuitively, parents know that if they try to homeschool high school – and in some way fail – there will be nobody to blame but themselves.

Perfect Children Always Complete Their Work

Perfect Children Always Complete Their Work
"But How do I Get Them to Work?!"I get a lot of different questions about homeschooling high school. A big one is “How do I get my student to do the work?”  Especially for parents new to homeschooling, this is the big worry.  How do you make them listen and get the job done?Unfortunately, perhaps, children are free moral agents.  They sometimes do not cooperate, and there isn’t any magic way to force them to work. ...

Independent Homeschool Support

Independent Homeschool Support
I encourage parents to homeschool independently.Homeschooling is legal in every state, and you can educate your children in a way that makes sense, without being tied to a school system.  That will allow you to homeschool outside the box, keeping your children challenged but not overwhelmed.  When you homeschool independently, you can choose homeschool curriculum that is a perfect fit, and teach any elective class under the sun.  The world is your oyster! But when you...
