This can be the most over-taught and over-stressed subject! Some parents think it must take thousands of hours with buckets of tears, but for homeschoolers, teaching English can be a real joy! Be sure to include both reading AND writing, and you have covered the core you need. How do you feel about English this coming year?

Homeschoolers have the advantage in finding scholarships, because you can incorporate it right into your schoolwork! Did you know you can give high school credit to your children for working on college scholarships? True story! To retain the love of learning, it's important to combine things when you can, and kill the proverbial two birds with one stone.

If now is the time to look for scholarships, learn and earn with this two-for-one strategy! My favorite English plan for junior or senior year! Read College Scholarships for High School Credit.


Homeschoolers learn to interact with EVERYONE, not just people born within 9 months of their birthday! They have more time to develop TRUE friendships with those who share their interests and values, rather than shallow relationships based on proximity and age.

This is my story of how socialization actually improved our chances for the full tuition scholarships that my children received: A little story for the next time you’re asked about socialization.


Did you know there are unaccredited public schools across the country? Yup! True story! That's why colleges treat your school the same way they do an unaccredited public school. One school district webpage in Missouri clearly explains what I have been telling parents for years. Accreditation isn’t the “be-all-end-all.” It’s interesting to read a no-nonsense, the-sky-isn’t-falling response to parental concern about accreditation.

If you want to read the long story of accreditation for your own edification, you can find it here: Homeschool Accreditation - Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

What About College?

What About College?
Do you ever wonder about things?  I was one of those moms that would worry and fret about LOTS of things.  Wonder what would happen if you homeschooled through high school?

Will Everything Be OK?

Will Everything Be OK?
I have been completely overwhelmed with the number of people signing up for my new free online mini-course.  Especially those who have shared with me there biggest question about homeschooling high school.  I'm planning to use them for blog posts so that I can meet the needs of as many people as possible at the same time.

I did receive one "biggest question" that really pulled at my heart:  "Will everything be OK?"

I do want to answer that question first and say YES!  It IS going to be OK!!!!

My best friend and I were having coffee last week.  Her son is now going to the same college as my boys.  Her son had severe dyslexia, and couldn't spell even basic words until adulthood, and he's 24 now.  He was recently admitted to college, given scholarships, and will be paying $1000 PER YEAR to go to private university.  It really WILL be OK!.

Years from now, you'll tell me I was right.

Some people have asked me what I hear most frequently from parents that have graduated their homeschoolers.  The thing I hear most often?  They are shocked and say, "Oh my gosh!  It worked!"

So hang in there, my friend!  You can do it!

Thank you to all who have signed up for my free mini-course on the "5 Biggest Mistakes Parents Make When Homeschooling High School."  I would be extremely grateful if you would share the link above with your homeschool group, co-op, Yahoo group or homeschool forum.  I know you and your friends will be blessed by this free resource!

What, Me Worry??

What, Me Worry??
If only our worries were something that we could put in a box and hide in a closet....  Do you ever just wish you could give your worries to someone else, and let THEM worry about it instead of doing that yourself?  That's sort of what I do in my job.  When people make a consulting appointment, I always encourage them to send me a list of questions they may have about high school.  I promise to compile the questions, and discuss them during our appointment.  The questions allow me to have some handouts ready, or email them links if it's a telephone consultation.  But the truth is, I really don't NEED any extra questions, because my presentations are pretty thorough.  The main reason I ask for a list of questions is so that people can relax while they are waiting for their appointment.  They don't have to stress out about every homeschool issue they think of.  Instead, they can give the issue to me and KNOW they'll get help - and then they can forget about it and enjoy life for awhile.   It just allows people a chance to give their worries to someone else!

So have a great summer.  If you want to set up an appointment, and give me your worries for awhile, just let me know.  I am currently scheduling appointments about 2 months in advance, but you can email me your questions for the whole time you are waiting.  And wouldn't it be nice to not have to think about them for a couple months!
