Middle and High School
You made it through your hardest homeschooling years, High School! And now, you are on to the next step, applying for college! I am sure you and your graduate are excited and overwhelmed. The college application process can be grueling, but one good thing is that the college application process for homeschoolers is really not that more difficult than a traditional highschooler.
Years ago homeschooling parents second guessed their decision to homeschool with the age-old question, “Will they ever get into college?”.Luckily, we no longer have to worry as much about that as more and more colleges are recruiting homeschoolers. For the most part, the days of discrimination from admission boards are gone, and we know our children CAN get into a good college.
As my oldest enters middle school I am realizing the importance of teaching her good study habits. So far this has consisted of telling her to “go study for your test”. That is the same thing I was told as a child. It didn’t work out to well for me…. AND based on her last history grade it’s not working out that great for her either.
The past few weeks we have been taking a look at homeschooling middle school. Check out part one and part two to see topics discussed thus far. As we shared, homeschooling middle school is a time of transition for the homeschool mom and the student. It is a time of more responsibility, fewer hands on cutesy stuff, and more independent learning. This week we are going to continue discussing what to teach in middle school.
