Homeschooling the College-Bound Student

Parents' concerns about homeschooling through high school

The thing I liked best about this workshop:  The workbook! Having all the information presented by Diane also on paper where notes can be added is so valuable! That's the true treasure from this as it can be referred to repeatedly through high school years and when applying to colleges.

Whether your child is in elementary school, middle school, or already in high school, this workshop will reduce stress and anxiety over homeschooling high school and preparing for college. So much is covered in this workshop, you'll walk away confident, knowing you are doing your best for your student! What I found especially invaluable were details about transcripts and grading, record-keeping, and choosing a college.

Your one-stop-shopping resource of informationI was very impressed with the amount of material presented and covered in just three short sessions. I will certainly recommend this class to other homeschooling families!

This workshop was clearly presented and succinct, yet thorough. The workbook is a valuable reference, and the program itself is reassuring in how it simplifies the entire process from transcripts to college applications. Dispels the myths and fears we have. Highly recommended.

— Homeschooling mom

I do reviews and social media promotion for many homeschool products. I have looked at some of the resources available to homeschoolers preparing for college such as webinars, membership websites, and books. The knowledge you share and the materials you provide are by far the best I've come across! It feels complete. I don't feel like I have to go searching for more information!

— Amy L.

I've tried to educate myself about the process for a few years now, and this workshop really filled in some key blanks for me. I had many Eureka moments!! — Thanks so much again!!!!!

— Homeschooling mom

Terrific. Full of information. The materials were so thorough. I now have a plan of action. Also, this workshop is inclusive: No matter what type of homeschooler you are, you will understand better how to prepare your student for college and present him or her in the best light.

Joni C.

I particularly found the information about the common app and how best to organize student achievements to be relevant and useful. All the information was thoughtfully presented. I think this workshop would be valuable to anyone with a high-school-age student.
