What I LOVE About Homeschooling High School with College in Mind

But seriously, what I Love About Homeschooling High School with College in Mind is that it gives you actionable things to do along the way. From your choice of courses your student completes to keeping records, how to calculate credit and more! It is an affordable and manageable quick reference to help you plan and navigate Homeschooling High School with College in Mind.

As you see in the photo above Betsy offers THREE Ways to High School Credit! I LOVE that she is not putting people in a box or telling us there is only ONE right way to navigate high school. I find this to be a really important piece of what she offers.

We were recently in a colleges admissions office where the counselor did nothing but push my daughter towards forging a path solely to a 4 year degree. Unfortunately that only made her not respect or listen to anything the woman had to say because it was all done with a “4 year degree slant”. Thus I really appreciated the fact that Betsy offered options, even on a path to college.
