Sadly, many of the homeschool moms in my community do not continue through the high school years with their children. The number one reason I hear is that the whole idea seems too daunting because of the record keeping involved. Many homeschooling parents see that task as impossible, and it is enough to send them to the nearest principal’s office to get their teen registered for ‘official’ high school.
Not only is homeschooling through high school possible, it really isn’t that difficult to navigate. It just takes a little research and planning, and it can be a very rewarding four years. I did it, and you can, too! In fact, homeschooling high school just got easier with Betsy Sproger’s helpful guide to all you need to know in Homeschooling High School with College in Mind.
Betsy and her husband homeschooled their daughter all the way from preschool through high school, and she is now a college student. She was accepted to several colleges, with scholarship offers from all. Betsy and her daughter sat down, did a lot of research, and came up with a workable plan to make her high school years count. In Homeschooling High School with College in Mind, Betsy shares how she covered all the bases for college admission, and she even includes reproducible forms to make this task even easier for those of us with college bound homeschoolers.
Here’s what you’ll find in the book
- Researching College Entrance Requirements
- Planning High School with College in Mind
- Choosing High School Curriculum
- Assigning High School Credit
- Making Your Transcripts (Calculating the GPA, etc)
- Electives and College
- Writing the College Essay

If you are currently homeschooling a middle schooler, I urge you to check out Homeschooling High School with College in Mind. I have been homeschooling as long as Betsy has, and my oldest started college this year. I have two more kids to go, and I will be using Betsy’s tips to make our ‘high school planning toward college’ an easier process.
