Are you starting to #Homeschool for the first time with children in high school? Where to begin. @TheHomeScholarLast week I got a lot of phone calls from parents thinking about beginning to homeschool for the first time. Last week in particular I spoke with two parents from different states who were dealing with chronic illnesses. They each planned to begin homeschooling as a way to educate their child through cycles of illness and hospitalization.

 If you have had your children in a public or private school, and plan to homeschool for the first time during high school, it can be a bit intimidating! It helps to focus on what your child needs, and do keep other concerns at a distance. If you know your child and trust yourself, you will be happy with your decision to homeschool. It can be a perfect fit for your family! Here are the resources that I thought would be a perfect fit beginners:

Preparing to Homeschool High School DVD

Gifted Education at Home: the general strategies would be great because of the stop-and-start nature of chronic illnesses, but it’s even more of a fit because you mentioned she was in the honors program before.

Here is the article called “What IF?” about homeschooling through trauma.

And this is the “where do I begin” curriculum I usually recommend. It’s a literature based Christian curriculum with lots of “hand-holding” for parents, and it comes with a daily schedule so you can tell your child what you expect each day. It’s best for bright children, so I think it will be an excellent fit. Since it’s literature based, much of it you can take to the hospital with you, if need be.

For Freshman, look at Sonlight American History called Core 100

And Sonlight’s Apologia Biology with science equipment

For older students, here is the link to Sonlight 300, the 20th Century World History.

Here is the Sonlight Apologia chemistry

Add a Sonlight Saxon math, if that is the right fit

If you are a Christian family, you may enjoy hearing about the scriptural basis for how you KNOW you can homeschool high school.

The “Convention at Home Kit” as an option to learning more about homeschooling, including how we got in to our first choice university, and how we achieved the full tuition scholarships.

When you have digested some information, or when you need support, you might want to consider joining the Gold Care Club so that we can talk each week, and I can support you through the process.

I look forward to talking to you! Have fun homeschooling – you’ll LOVE it!

Happy Customers

I seriously thank you both as you have made all the difference for our son. I was prepared to send him away next year for high school because I had lost hope, was so scared and my vision had become cloudy. But I have praising God that I found your site a few days ago and now I know I can do this.

Hi Lee,

Thank you so much for all the help you have given me over the past years. I really appreciate you and your advice. On Saturday, I graduated my youngest child who will be heading off to Liberty University in the fall. What a blessed journey it has been and you have been a big part of the success we have experienced.

I am an organized person but your help in staying on top of... Read More

Dear Lee,

I attended the North Carolina Homeschool Conference several years ago when you were speaking. My daughter was just beginning High School and I felt lost. You were wonderful! I left the conference feeling energized and encouraged. I read your books, watched your Youtube videos and your DVDs. I can't tell you how often we used your advise in Dual Enrollment, college visits,... Read More

Tracy in North Carolina

I love Lee Binz!!!! So full of valuable information, support and inspiration! The Gold Club was very worthwhile! I appreciated the opportunity to have those weekly phone calls with her when I had specific questions. She is awesome! Everything I have bought through her program has been a worthwhile and valuable purchase.

Robin in California

I ran across a story in an article that referenced how much Lee Binz had helped the author with homeschooling high school, so I decided to give her a call. She had a special “Gold Club” membership which included access to her resources, a special email address, and a 20-minute phone consultation with her once a week to pick her brain about any questions or concerns I might have. I decided to... Read More

Jean in North Carolina

Thank you so much for the wealth of information that you share! You have given me the knowledge and courage to do more than I ever felt possible, especially the ability to maneuver the high school transcript and college application process. Our daughter was accepted to all six schools to which she applied. She was offered various scholarships to each of them, and she received a full four-year... Read More

Lori in New Hampshire

The support and information The HomeScholar provided helped me confidently perform that task, and now my son has been accepted into the college of his choice! Believe it or not, his smile was even bigger than in the picture when he got that acceptance letter! Thank you, HomeScholar!

Kelly and her son, Cole

I just wanted to say 'thank you SO much' once again for all your help and input. I don't know if this adequately expresses how appreciated your wise counsel is and what a help it's been to me. I would be fumbling and procrastinating if I had not ordered your transcript e-book and become a member of your Gold Care Club. I'm so glad my husband said OK to letting me stay on as a member. It's funny... Read More

I thought I would have to convince my husband that we wanted to spend this amount, but he is fully convinced that your materials are an investment in my daughter's education. That, my friend, is a compliment in the highest! He is very picky as to what he calls an investment in education! We've been talking about it, and I told him that not only am I impressed with your materials, and not only was... Read More

Lee!!!!!! You don't even realize what a blessing your blog post was to me today... SERIOUSLY! I was actually talking to the Lord about this yesterday; then you post this! Amazing! Thank you so much! May God continue to bless all you do for Him and us home schoolers! You're awesome!

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions at the conference. I’ve been praying for an answer to my unique needs in homeschooling my oldest son. I believe God answered my prayers by sending me to you. A huge weight was lifted after speaking with you and your husband. It’s hard for me to let go and let God have complete control of our homeschool, but I’m learning and it’s getting... Read More

Janel in North Dakota

Your presentation was FABULOUS and fills a GAPING need in the homeschooling community. You teach people how to take their unique homeschooling experience and translate it into a college-prep program. What a gift!! You helped bring clarity and focus to areas that needed attention. I absolutely can't wait to get my hands on your college series. I will buy anything you produce!

I found Lee Binz while searching the internet. My husband and I set up an appointment with Lee.  Talk about hand holding! It was just what I needed. She answered all my questions about SAT, ACT, CLEP, AP, and PSAT testing. She helped me set up a plan for the next four years. It was wonderful. The best part? My husband and I left the meeting as a team. Even today I still feel 100% better about... Read More

Thank you so, so much for all that you are doing. I have needed support like you offer for a number of years now. It has felt like we've been going on to the end all alone. Now I feel supported. I am just nervous to call or email you for help. One of these days I will be brave. Thank you, again. You are one of my heroes.

You guys on the support staff are really fantastic, I have never had better customer service. It is a rarity in this day and age sometimes.

I am so so so thankful to God for you. I spent the morning becoming confused and in despair over math and science next year. I was reading a homeschool forum trying to decide what to do for science next year. Some of the moms had the idea that you HAD to do certain things or your child's college career, not to mention life, would be ruined if you didn't do things a certain way. I finally... Read More
