What You Really Need to KNOW about COLLEGE - For Homeschoolers

As homeschoolers, we are already experts in planning. We have searched for and chosen curriculum each year for our kids. We have decided on which subjects to focus on and how to teach them to our kids. 

Planning for high school, with college in mind is really no different, except for one important thing.....Now your teen has their college entrance entrance requirements to fulfill.  How to find out your teen's college requirements is discussed in depth in chapter one of my book, "Researching and Getting Started".

Some bloggers suggest that all we need to do is to check the college websites for their freshman entrance requirements.  

Is that right?

Actually the answer is NO.   

But it's a good start.  There are two more pieces of information that are important to have.  And they are not hard to find....

It is also important when preparing for college to:

1.  Find out if there are any special homeschool requirements for your likely colleges, and many colleges still have them, but they are not hard to deal with.


2.   Check to see what the colleges require re testing -  SAT or ACT - and also - Do they also require the writing portion of the test or not?

Both of these pieces of information are discussed in Chapter 1 of my book, in free as a download above, or click here,

Most colleges still do require the SAT or the ACT, but there are many that do not require the writing portion.

And if they don't require that writing portion, then your teen doesn't need to do it!  We did not need to do the writing portion of the SAT, and that was great news for our teen!

Tips for how to find out these important things are in my first chapter, which you can get FREE above, or here

Making an Overall High School Plan

Making an overall plan was the best way for me to keep calm about college, and carry on, so to speak.  Then I could lay out all of my teen's college entrance requirements and see how they could be completed, one year at a time.
