Give your teen the high school education you want for them -- while maintaining your own sanity in the process!

Hi, I'm Ann, and I've been homeschooling for 20+ years, including graduating four children (one more to go!).

I believe EVERY mom can confidently, competently -- and even contentedly! -- provide the complete high school education her teen needs. Whatever your concerns about homeschooling high school, you can overcome them and have the BEST years ever!

As seen on PamBarnhill.com:

"Ann Karako is a wealth of common-sense knowledge when it comes to homeschooling high school. As a mom who has graduated four kids, Ann knows the ins and outs of creating transcripts, preparing kids to launch, and most importantly -- not freaking out. Lucky for us, she is willing to share that superpower with us."

Ann will be a Featured Speaker at all seven
