Finishing Strong ~ Homeschooling the Middle & High School Years #128

Finishing Strong is a place for families who are homeschooling middle & high school kids to meet up in order to share tips, encouragement, advice, and more. We know it can be stressful homeschooling teens, which is why we’ve built this community!

Finishing Strong ~ Homeschooling the Middle & High School Year #128 from Starts At Eight

Summer is almost here which means it’s time for our annual break. Because fewer families homeschool during June and July and many of our blogging friends take some time off, we find it’s a good time for us to take a break from our weekly link up.

Don’t worry, we’ll be back!! We will resume Finishing Strong on August 9th. The link up below will stay open all summer, so please keep coming back to add in your amazing content about homeschooling older kids.

In the meantime, you can stay connected and encouraged by:

Everything above will be updated regularly over the summer, so we hope you’ll stay connected with us.

Enjoy your summer! See you in a few weeks.

Below are some of the posts I enjoyed from last week, as well as the one that received the most clicks (in the #1 spot). Did I choose one of your favorites?

1. How to KNOW what your teen NEEDS to get into COLLEGE

This was our most clicked post this week! Congratulations Annie & Everything!

2. 3 Reasons to Avoid Over Compliance with State Homeschool Laws

“Overcompliance can make families who comply with the homeschool law by doing exactly what it says, and no more, look like they aren’t doing their job, which is not true.”

3. Year Round Homeschooling – Why it works

“You have the freedom to explore 4 day weeks, worry less about reviewing, and don’t have to try and figure out how to keep your children from declaring they are bored one month into summer break.”

4. Skipping the Public School Route – All the way to college

Encouragement and resources for homeschooling the long haul.
