Yes, homeschooling high school is different than homeschooling the younger grades. The subjects are harder, you have to give grades, and you have to put together a transcript. Looking back over 25 years of homeschooling, I am convinced that teaching children to read is the hardest thing and everything else, including high school, is a piece of cake in comparison.
So many times, I have sat down with frightened moms about to take the high school plunge. Let me remind you. The teen years can be dangerous to navigate. Your teens still need you and you know them best. You are still the best teacher they will ever have.
If you don't know how to teach something for high school--there are options galore! You can take online classes, enrichment classes, umbrella school classes, independent studies, and dual enroll. Even if you delegate several classes, you are still the one in charge of your teen's high school education.
My friend Laura and I sat down so many times with homeschooling moms who wanted to take the high school plunge, but were afraid, that we wrote a book containing all the advice we give, answered all the questions mom ask. The book, Unlocking the Mystery of Homeschooling High School, is available at Amazon. The E-book is available at Currclick and PowerlineProd.
You can do it!
For His Glory,
