A Step-by-Step Handbook for Research & Planning
-->You woke up recently and realized that your tomorrows are now TODAY.
That kid who was just born yesterday—really!—is all of a sudden ready to start high school SOON.
And you are feeling like a deer in the headlights, panicked and not knowing which way to turn or how to proceed.
∞ Homeschooling high school seems like a HUGE responsibility. You've heard there is a long list of things you should do, and it's all a bit overwhelming.
∞ You feel so inadequate for the task ahead. How will you teach Chemistry or Geometry or writing or history when you don't remember ANY of it?
∞ You're up at night wondering if you will ruin your teen's future. How will you know if you're doing enough? Will they be behind? How can you be sure you're not missing anything?
∞ This is a human life we are talking about, and every decision you make now could affect them for the rest of their life. You don't want to mess this up.
∞ But you're so confused by all the voices out there.
What you need is a guide to walk you through.
At least for the beginning stages of this endeavor—you know, the part with all the decision-making that seems like it could make or break your teen's existence forever. So instead of floundering or wasting time, you can:
-> Create a solid foundation to start from and have a plan for the rest that you can feel good about.
-> Sort through all that well-intentioned advice and decide how to make this work for YOU and YOUR teen.
-> Prove to your friends and family that you are not just "winging it"—and that keeping your teen home through the high school years really won't stifle their academic development or their ability to delve into what interests them.
-> Approach the whole homeschool high school thing with confidence—not trepidation or insecurity or sleepless nights. Wouldn't that be wonderful?

Fear is one way of describing the idea of homeschooling two high schoolers next year. Dread. Self-Doubt. I thought there was a lack of information on how to go about the whole process. I didn’t know where to look. Ann’s book Cure the Fear was just the book I needed! Not only did it answer all the questions I had — plus a few I didn’t. She shows you how to find the information, what it means, how you can use it to work for you, not against you. She even offers suggestions on how to find the best curriculum for your child and how to adjust that to your child’s unique needs. By the end of the book, I couldn’t wait to get planning high school! –Jen Mackinnon

Our oldest in right in the middle of middle school, so high school has definitely been on my mind recently. I’ve read a lot of encouraging articles about homeschooling through high school that assure me that yes, it really is possible. And I guess I figured we’d find a way to muddle through. But Ann’s book Cure the Fear of Homeschooling through High School was exactly what I needed to feel not just “okay” but to know that I had a plan in place. Her approach is very practical and very hands-on. She sends you right to pertinent resources and provides you with just the tools you need to organize and compare what you find. She takes you from big-picture long-term goals and drills right down to the details. There’s no comfort like getting a clear look at what’s ahead and knowing you have the resources to make the decisions you’ll need to make! –Lynna Sutherland
Cure the Fear is a small investment that will save you a lot of time, frustration, and worry—and help you gain PEACE OF MIND.

I've been there, done that.
Hi, I'm Ann. I was exactly like you. I was intimidated by the thought of homeschooling my first child through high school. I had no idea what to do or who to believe. I had to find out for myself what was REALLY necessary for preparing my daughter for college and/or the “real world.”
Since then I have graduated four children who have all been accepted to the colleges of their choice (and a fifth has two more years of high school). My eldest just obtained her Master’s degree. #3 spent a year studying in France and is about to graduate with a double major. #2 and #4 actually decided not to do the college thing after all and instead are working at jobs they enjoy. NONE of them were “ruined” by spending their high school years at home.
I believe EVERY mom can CONFIDENTLY, COMPETENTLY—and even CONTENTEDLY—provide the COMPLETE high school education her teen needs. And this book will help you get there.
This book is the resource I desperately needed when I began homeschooling high school. Ann simplifies the planning process with step-by-step directions, printable worksheets, and plenty of encouragement along the way. You will be able to plan the high school years with confidence, knowing that you have covered everything your child needs for graduation and beyond. Highly recommended for all homeschool parents! –Judy Hoch
Even after reading several books about the final stretch and creating a basic plan for the upcoming high school years, I was surprised to learn so many new nuggets from Cure the Fear. It is a no-fail guide to simple planning that will calm your fears and help you launch into high school well. –Jamie Erickson
