Homeschooling Through High School and into College

Updated on August 31, 2012

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?

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.

 

P.S. What is The Homeschool Club?

THE HOMESCHOOL CLUB is real parents and kids sharing their best resources for great homeschooling. Each day we celebrate learning by opening doors to a world of creativity, knowledge and discovery. In the car, at the kitchen sink, and down by the frog pond - the whole world is our classroom and we explore it with creative projects, games, and activities. This club is a place to share, organize, and discuss how and what we learn in the world. Make a free page to tell your own homeschooling story and share your favorite resources. We can't wait to hear from you!

      Yes, we're a homeschooling through high school family! You asked about other middle school or high school resources. I have a few: https://hubpages.com/education/homeschool-co-op-cl... https://hubpages.com/education/catapult-lessons and https://hubpages.com/education/physical-science-cu... . I'm working on a high school biology labs page right now.

      You've created a great resource page for those interested in home schooling their high school aged children.

      We did, with excellent results. I's been several years since our youngest graduated. Now we have internet and the world and seemingly endless resources are at the fingertips of those wanting to homeschool through high school. I still don't recommend it for everyone, but if the desire and the drive are there, I say go for it!

      We did not homeschool high school but certainly lots of families do. There are lots of resources and lots of support for anyone wishing to do so.
