High School

Is homeschooling high school really not that hard?  Have you heard that a lot from online facebook groups, who make things sound so easy when they are not?

Yes, high school does involves more planning and record keeping, and such.  But with the right resources and tips, it can be a low stress and wonderful way for your teen to do high school.  And get then into the college of their choice, too.  

Below are all of my favorite resources to make your homeschool rich and full, and not that hard to do as well.

We are so glad that we went all the way.  It gave our teen time to discover her own gifts and allowed us to meet her individual needs re sensory and attention issues.

  1. This is a VERY helpful page of resources... I will be referring to it often now that we have started our high school journey!

  2. Thanks so much, Mary Prather, for stopping by, and your kind comment! I am hoping to put this into an ebook form someday, as I would like to help more families who are looking at the college option. I enjoyed reading your latest update, on your two kids, as they start another great year! Thanks for hosting Collage Friday!
