What do you need to know to homeschool high school

Are you a seasoned homeschooler and are now facing the fact that your once small children are almost or already taller than you? Where did the time go? You may be questioning if you have what it takes to teach these “almost adult” kids everything they need to know to go out in the world in four short years. This might be preparing them for a vocational school or even college. It could also mean helping them explore other possibilities beyond college such as entrepreneurship or a job field that is of interest to them.

Maybe your teens got their educational start in a traditional school but you are considering having them finish up their schooling at home with you. You might wonder if you are qualified to do such a thing! Rest assured it can be done and with some pointers you can be on your way to homeschooling success.

If you haven’t already you will really want to start keeping records of what your child knows and transcripts that will one day be ready to send to potential colleges. Take a look through these homeschooling resources to help you plan every step of the way. You can do it!
