Tips on Preparing Ahead of Time for College Entrance — Excerpt from CollegePlus’ Ebook “From Homeschool to Grad School”
I’m a homeschool high school graduate. My mom was always a little worried about homeschooling us all the way through to college, but after graduating a decade ago, I can’t say I’ve starved yet.
In fact, I’m doing a lot better than a lot of college grads these days and the autonomy that comes through homeschooling was the catalyst that’s made my success a reality.
Like my mom, others who homeschool their kids often wonder if they’re making the right choice, if the opportunities will still be there on the back end. I can say from personal experience that they absolutely are.

Homeschoolers deserve to get credit for all the hard work they do… college credit. How can your student build up an impressive transcript that documents advanced learning? How can you inspire your self-motivated teen? Consider all the benefits of credit-by-examination programs. These programs allow homeschooled students to earn college credit in undergraduate subjects while still in high school. There are two other big advantages: your student saves time on the path to higher education and you save significant dollars in college tuition costs.
Career Choices & Changes – Book & Website
The changing fortunes of our economy have caused a renewed interest in career planning for all of us. Thinking about what you do for a living – or want to do — is not the exclusive domain of young people in high school or college, but now relates even to middle-aged workers who have suddenly been tossed into the realm of unemployment and no return to their former jobs.
Academic Innovations has published an extremely helpful – even vital – book to aid anyone in thinking about career choices and solving the attendant problems. While anyone can use the book to their advantage, this book is particularly focused on high school and college age students. However the exercises and discussions in the book and website, My10yearPlan.com, are tremendously helpful in self-assessment for anyone. And young people who enter college with a career focus and education plan are much more likely to graduate.
Indiana University: Earn a College Degree at Home
Homeschooled students are accustomed to studying on their own schedule, at home, so it’s not surprising to learn that some of these students want to keep their independence when they go on to college.
Indiana University gives these students the opportunity to earn their college degree from home. By taking courses through the undergraduate Independent Study Program, students can earn an Indiana University Associate of Arts in General Studies (60 semester credit hours) or Bachelor of General Studies (120 semester credit hours).

You no doubt already have the basic subjects covered in your curriculum: Reading, writing, math, history, arts, science, geography, social studies … all of these things have an endless variety of resources available to you!
