The high school years intimidate many homeschool parents, but they don’t need to. I’ve found some great resources as my children progress through this last stage. Homeschooled children tend to become adept at educating themselves. If they get stuck and parents can’t help, the internet offers virtually any answer. Record keeping, it turns out, is not the mysterious, scary job one might anticipate; in fact, homeschool transcripts are eagerly welcomed at many colleges. High school definitely involves a little more work and planning, but it’s no reason to give up. Far from it – this is where the real fun begins!
