Homeschooling Through High School and into College
Homeschool Middle School, Homeschool High School, and Get Your Homeschooler into College!
Homeschooling elementary-age children seems simple in comparison to the heavy subjects that start in middle school and get heavier in high schooler. Many parents find the idea of homeschooling all the way through high school to be daunting, but lots of people have gone before and taken their children all the way through high school and into college without setting foot in a public school building. Here is a compendium of pages to help you see your way clear to homeschooling your teen through high school.
How Does Your Homeschool Grow?
... the best idea ever, and here's why!
Homeschooling for Excellence - David and Micki Colfax tell how they homeschooled three of their four sons into Harvard.
(The fourth son was still at home as of the writing of this book.)
The Colfaxes don't purport to be experts; they don't prescribe a formula for their success. Rather, their experience is described as a trial-and-error effort, with some of their mistakes offered up as lessons for others. The value of critically examining textbooks in advance, for instance, is learned after one son falls behind in algebra using a schoolbook that touts "new math" principles. The Colfaxes' philosophy is that every child is gifted.
