HSHSP Ep 83: Homeschooled and Headed for College

Many homeschool highschoolers are planning to attend college. How about yours? We know there’s not one right way to homeschool highschool AND there’s not one right way to do life after highschool. Some teens are call right into the workforce, military or missions. Others must go through college.

For teens who are homeschooled and planning for college, we’ve got some helpful information to think about. As experienced homeschool moms and community leaders, we’ve learned some insider tips. What experience do we have?

  • We’ve graduated all of our homeschool highschoolers and all the college-interested teens attended a college of their choice.
  • Vicki has served as academic advisor for local homeschool upperclassmen, helping hundreds graduate and gain acceptance at a college of their choice.
  • Sabrina and Kym have, for decades, taught homeschool co-op and group classes and mentored college-bound students (including writing many, many college reference letters).
  • However, we can’t say that Quella the seeing eye puppy has helped many teens get into college yet. Maybe someday…

From our feet-on-the-ground experience, we’ve got helpful information for you regarding the questions we often receive:

  • How can you and your teens manage the stress of the college hunt, preparation and application process?
  • Why is junior year important for college-bound students’ transcripts?
  • How many colleges should homeschool highschoolers apply to?
  • Why fill out FAFSA?
  • What is FAFSA anyway?
  • What is the importance of college visits?
  • What are some secrets of scholarships?
  • What do you need to know about the application process?
  • Why are application essay important?
  • How to politely ask for reference letters?

Career Exploration is a necessary life preparation course in highschool! (It may not be mandatory, but it certainly is important!)

Teens don’t need to know everything about the future when they graduate homeschool highschool- but they will be off to a MUCH better start if they have a sense of direction!

That sense of direction comes from knowing themselves and looking for God’s guidance. That’s what Career Exploration is all about!

Join Vicki and Kym as they share about their work with homeschool highschoolers on the Career Exploration journey in this week’s Homeschool Highschool Podcast: What’s Included in Career Exploration?
