College-Prep Homeschooling

Listen to the podcast

Hey, homeschoolers! This week I'm going to answer your questions about college-prep homeschooling or what you need to do in high school to prepare your student for college. Before we dive in, I want to mention The Great Homeschool Convention. I am just home from Cincinnati, where I was able to meet some of you. It is a thrill to meet you and hear what I'm sharing that makes a difference in your homeschooling life. Without your feedback I can feel like I'm talking to the clothes in my closet where I record. I am happy to share mistakes I've made so you don't have to make them and successes I've had so you can share them. I heard from you that the thoroughbred analogy I used was helpful. If you don't know what I'm talking about, listen to How to Happy and Homeschool Too. If you are able to attend the great homeschool convention in St. Louis in July, I would love to meet you in person.

I am frequently asked about college-prep homeschooling. When some moms consider the high school years as preparation for college, they freak out. I get it. I was worried about high school too. But I shouldn't have been. This May I will graduate my third high school student and will have my first college graduate. I don't have all the answers, but my perspective has changed and I want to share my experiences that should calm your fears.

Homeschooling high school can be a rewarding time in your relationship with your teen. While preparing your child for college can create anxiety, we can learn how to choose courses, prepare our kids for college entrance exams, and earn scholarship money. We can also trust God to help our kids do what is required to fulfill the plan He has for them. College-prep homeschooling has been much easier than I thought it would be. I hope I've reassured you!
