Dear Homeschool Parent,
Have you ever noticed how the world of "professional education" loves to put you down and question your abilities as a teacher?
A favorite way they do this is through advertisements that say their private school or government sponsored program employs "real teachers" and uses "proven curriculum." They ignore the fact that homeschool parents, who love and are committed to their kids, consistently deliver a superior education through every phase of schooling.
And while it is true that most parents homeschooling their elementary children feel some level of "we've got this" confidence, something fundamentally changes around 6th or 7th grade. It is around this time that some of those negative messages finally find their mark in the heart of many homeschool parents.
These are real questions and they are powerful enough to cause far too many parents to drop out of homeschooling and put their kids into public or private school.
But it isn't these parents' ability to educate that changes. It isn't that they aren't enjoying homeschooling anymore. It isn't even that their kids have "outgrown" homeschooling.
What is it then?
I believe it is a loss of confidence. To put it simply, they grow afraid.
But what if you knew of a place where you could get all your questions about homeschooling middle school and high school answered?
What if you found a resource that would consistently cut through all the internet noise and give you proven advice to make your homeschool provide the best possible education for your children?
What if you knew that your toughest challenges, your biggest concerns could be answered in a way that boosted your confidence and renewed your commitment to finish your high calling to educate your children?
Too good to be true?

When I was homeschooling, no such resource existed. In fact, almost ALL my friends dropped out of homeschooling when they reached middle school. There was a time, right after I moved to a new neighborhood when I literally knew no one who was continuing to homeschool into high school.
Was I crazy to want to continue? Possibly.
But the one thing I knew was that God had called me to be a homeschool parent and that calling wasn't rescinded just because my kids hit 7th grade.
In fact, the calling grew louder and deeper.
My husband and I knew we were supposed to homeschool through high school. Since we had no resources readily at our disposal, we had to find them all. I literally spent hundreds of hours researching everything that was available in the library and online on how to homeschool the upper grades.
The bad news for us was that much of the existing information was confusing, contradictory and frustrating.
Flash forward four years and we were looking at envelopes that included admission and scholarship awards from our boys' first choice university totaling $187,000.
Well, the simplest way to explain it is after a lot of research, we kind of just figured it out.
Granted, when we started high school we had no idea we would enjoy the amazing success that we did. We had no idea whether our strategies would work, so we studied, planned, strategized, and prayed like crazy.
So when we got those huge scholarships, we gave thanks. And when our homeschooling friends started asking (no, more like begging) for me to help them with high school, we talked it over and decided to give back.
Really, our Plan A was me going back to work full time as a nurse and using that money to pay for college. Now, with college for both kids paid for, we could scratch Plan A.
I remember the summer a few years back that my husband asked me point blank, "What would you like to do with your time now?"
Without hesitating, I said, "I want to keep homeschooling *sniff*".
My husband gently pointed out that we were missing one of the key ingredients for homeschooling (i.e. more children). So I then said, "I'd really like to help other moms so they don't have to go through what I had to."
And thus, The HomeScholar was born.
For the last decade, I have been helping parents homeschool high school. My clients have experienced success similar to ours, and some have experienced far, far greater success. (Imagine your kids being paid to go to college ....) My primary means of helping parents has been though free materials, paid parent training classes, and in-person consulting.
There was one thing that was missing though ...
I have never offered a complete stand-alone, do-it-yourself homeschool through high school training package for parents who did not want or need individual coaching/mentoring.
That is, until now...
