Some Famous Successful Homeschoolers - Just a few homeschooling success stories!
Did You Homeschool Your Children?
Christopher Paolini is a Famous Homeschool Success Story! - No home school success story list would be complete without him!
"Now that the first generation of homeschoolers is well-established in society, we're hearing a lot about how well these young people are doing. Christopher Paolini is the 20-year-old author of Eragon, a fantasy novel that jumped to third on The New York Times bestseller list just a few weeks after it was published. Christopher's journey to fame began when he was fifteen. He finished high school and was accepted to a college but decided not to go right away. Instead, he set out to write a novel." READ MORE
Here's a great big fantasy that you can pull over your head like a comfy old sweater and disappear into for a whole weekend. Christopher Paolini began Eragon when he was just 15, and the book shows the influence of Tolkien, of course, but also Terry Brooks, Anne McCaffrey, and perhaps even Wagner in its traditional quest structure and the generally agreed-upon nature of dwarves, elves, dragons, and heroic warfare with magic swords.

Homeschoolers' Success Stories by Linda Dobson - 15 Adults and 12 Young People Share the Impact That Homeschooling Has Made on Their Lives
Famous and not-so-famous homeschoolers from past and present people this book that helps homeschoolers realize they are not alone and there is a bright future for their homeschooled children! Statesmen, politicians, educators, celebrities, athletes, authors, and artists to "everyday folks" such as chefs, entrepreneurs, members of the armed forces, and business owners people these fascinating pages.
Each chapter begins with a photo and yearbook-style sketch of the personality, complete with favorite areas of study and a memorable quote. The biographies are short and insightful, with the author often injecting her own thoughts. Dobson, the mother of three homeschooled children, has written numerous books on the topic and is a news editor and columnist for Home Education Magazine. In her casual, succinct writing style, she brings to life personalities that have little in common beyond their method of education. Some were taught at home completely; others for only a few years. Their overriding message is that homeschooled people are just as diverse and interesting as the students found in traditional schools. "We are not alone," is the cry heard from these pages. - Jodi Mailander Farrell
