AND today, we were so pleased to....get a very important package in the mail....


My teen's first college acceptance!

"This book guides the reader step by step through the maze of requirements for college AND gives the gift of comparing requirements for various types of colleges. I am beyond grateful for this book, and highly suggest it to every homeschool family regardless of the stage one is at. Being able to see a long-term educational plan, laid out so effectively, is a gift.

  12. I cannot thank you enough Betsy sharing your daughter's high school to college journey! We are soon to be entering the high school phase and the thought certainly keeps me awake at night. Being eclectic homeschoolers as well I'm sure you can remember the trepidation I feel when I think about planning for high school, lol. Your daughter is such an inspiration and seeing your success gives me much encouragement!
