Are you homeschooling a teen who wants to go to college? 

Or are you a mama who is thinking about homeschooling high school but wondering if your teen could still get into college?

You they can!

You can put together a nurturing high school program and help your teen get into college at the same time.

And your homeschool can still be interest led!  

Our daughter explored hands-on science projects to save the salmon in our local creek, made videos and entered them in a contest, ran for office at Youth and Government, competed in irish stepdancing, learned to make freezer jam, and made lots of high school friends.

There's electives, high school activities, and time to explore new things.  It is a great time for your teen to discover their own interests and gifts.

Knowing the details of college planning can free you up to create an individualized high school program for your teen, like we did.

This book is based on my experience helping my teen get accepted by each of the colleges on her list with scholarship offers, including and a tier one U.  She is now studying at the University of Washington, which is listed as #15 in the top 25 colleges in the United States.

The tips in this book helped my 2e daughter with attentional and sensory issues, get into her top choice university.  And be prepared to do so!


- BS in Occupational Therapy with Concentration in Education

-  Homeschool Consultant to the Kent School District
  working with college bound high school families

- Worked directly with teens and young adults with learning issues

-  14 years of homeschooling, from preschool thru graduation

-  6 years of creating interest led homemade courses for middle and high school, such as video-making, and making homemade courses for social studies and English, based on high school outside activities and/or our own design.

-  Homeschooled high school, interest led, and navigated the college entrance process with a student who had sensory and attentional issues.

-   Proven ability to prepare teens for college level work, shown by my daughter earning Dean's List     grades starting in her first quarter.  How about that for homeschooling!!


My daughter is now a senior in college, and will graduate this spring from the University of Washington with Honors.

She earned a degree in Communications, with a minor in Political Science and leadership, interests she grew in her high school years at home.

Her outside activities and homemade elective  lead her to this major.  And most importantly, she had a great college experience and has many options for future employment.
