Overview: Preparing for college as homeschoolers may seem daunting. With these suggestions from a veteran homeschool mom your teen will be ready! (Text may include referral links.)
I’ve sent four kids off to college based on the courses listed on their homeschool transcript. Two graduated — one of those went on to get her Master’s degree, and the other is studying for CPA exams right now. One of the kids decided college wasn’t for her; not because of grades but because of inclination. She came home and decided to work full time instead (and is now out on her own). The fourth will graduate junior college with his associates degree soon. We’re pleased with these results!
We didn’t do anything super-duper magical to get them ready. Preparing for college academically entails a few common-sense tasks that will help grow your teen to handle the independence of college courses and the level of the work. You might discover it’s easier than you think.
As always, don’t listen to the voices saying you have to do all. the. things. Wait for the third item I mention for more understanding about that. :-)

SchoolhouseTeachers.com member, Michelle says, “I love all of the many choices of classes as well as the offerings available through SchoolhouseTeachers such as the tutorial videos. That has been a huge blessing for me keeping my sanity trying to remember how to do the math! Also, I am so grateful for the record keeping features with attendance and setting up a transcript for my high school student. Many inspiring and encouraging articles in your magazine as well. I appreciate most of all the encouragement and guidance to help make our homeschooling years successful because the thought of my child going into the public school system these days because of what they are being taught is very scary.
