Jennifer Cook-DeRosa is the founder and executive director of the non-profit social organization
Homeschooling for College Credit and an educational consultant with Next Steps Coaching. Since 2012, her organization of volunteers has helped over 13,000 homeschooling families learn how to inject college credit into their homeschool program. Jennifer's book, Homeschooling for College Credit, is the #1 New Release in
Homeschooling on Amazon.com.
The U.S. Department of Education reports that about half of the students who start college will
never finish. Jennifer's experience as a former college administrator and practical approach to
homeschooling is often called "Ramsey-esque" in reviews, redirecting parents to focus on their
real assignment, which is not getting their kids into college- it's getting them out.
Jennifer believes that parents make the best guidance counselors, even when they've never been
to college. Her inspirational teaching style encourages parents to reconsider the wisdom of
popular college propaganda and make the best decisions for their family.
Jennifer and her husband have been married for 25 years and have 4 sons, all homeschooled
since Day 1. All of their sons have earned college credit in high school, and collectively her
family has 9 degrees from 7 different colleges.
