More and more families are starting to homeschool, but we are seeing an increase in the number of homeschool families who feel trapped. Home education is a GREAT tool for us as families to give our children an excellent education and to afford us countless opportunities for discipleship. This month, we’re going to look at some foundational elements of homeschooling that can keep us moving forward with this great call of God on our lives.
There is something about the middle of the school year that makes us all take a step back and assess what we are doing. Are
The year has brought about changes in our family’s homeschool. I let go of many of my pre-conceived notions about home education. The difference has been great. We still don’t live in a “Pinterest-perfect” house or run our school in a picture-perfect way, but we are all growing and changing and becoming more like the individuals God created us to be. For that, I am thankful!

By now you may be very well acquainted with your student’s degree completion plan (DCP): the list of classes required for his intended major(s). These plans are available on any college’s website or through their admission office.

A few months ago we talked about dual enrollment: a fantastic way to save time and money for your student’s college education. (If you haven’t already signed up for a class or two, pick up your local community college catalog or check out the possibilities for online dual credit!) But dual enrollment isn’t the only way to save time and money for college. In this email, we’ll discuss three alternatives that – when used alone or in conjunction with dual enrollment – can help your student achieve her college dreams without the usual time and expense.
Drama group, swimming, gymnastics, debate: how do these activities contribute to a student’s academic transcript? More than you think! While colleges will first take into account a student’s tests scores and grades, extracurricular activities provide a complete picture of who the student is and where he’s headed academically.
As the weather gets colder and holiday preparations begin, schoolwork takes a backseat. Whether you break completely for the holidays or do light work all year round, I’m about to add one little thing to your to-do list: arranging your first college visits!
Don’t worry: you don’t need to visit colleges in December. Since most of the students and professors will be home for Christmas break, there wouldn’t be much to see anyway! This is the month to begin planning for next year’s visits, whether in spring or fall. How do you set up a campus visit, and what should you do once you’re there? Here are some tips:

The holidays are past (well, except Valentine’s Day!) and your family is back into the swing of homeschool. As you come to the middle of this semester some of the novelty may have worn off those shiny curriculum books. You might be juggling a kindergartener, third grader, AND your high school student – right when your ninth grader starts to struggle with his college preparatory studies. What do you do? Below are three common problem areas for high school students and some ways to address them.
Homeschooling comes in many shapes and sizes to fit all the different types of families who homeschool. For busy families with fast-paced lives, online curriculum
Not every student wants to go to college right out of high school. Some aren’t sure they want to attend college at all – looking instead at alternative options.
