Homeschooling through the high school years presented many differences from homeschooling in the younger years, primarily in the areas of planning, organizing, and record keeping to meet graduation requirements, scholarship requirements, and college admission.
For a number of years I have presented annual Workshops on Homeschooling High School to local homeschoolers. Although some of the information is particular to Tennessee, much of the information and suggestions would be useful to homeschoolers in any state. I am pleased to offer the information and insights I have compiled in a useful PDF document.
For $4.50 you can receive "Homeschooling High School", an 8 page document that discusses and fleshes out the material contained in my "Getting Started with Homeschooling High School" workshop.
The areas covered include a discussion of the goals in homeschooling high school and how different goals might impact one's choices in materials and structure; Registration options for the state of Tennessee and how those options impact eligibility for the HOPE lottery scholarship; Graduation Requirements of the state of Tennessee, as well as three of the most popular umbrella schools used here in the Memphis area; Choices of Classes and Courses of Study, i.e. different areas of study to meet those graduation requirements; where to look for Resources and Materials to flesh out your teen's course of study; different methods of Accountability/Evaluation/Grades; Record Keeping, including keeping track of credits, volunteer work, and leadership indicators for college admission and scholarship purposes.
