College Guidance for Homeschoolers

Homeschool parents take on many roles. They are teachers, coaches and legal experts who need to develop an understanding of the laws regarding homeschool programs in their state. And as students get older, they take on the role of guidance counselor, as they support their children in consideration of training, apprenticeships, college and possible future career paths.

Homeschooling is a great opportunity and a daily challenge. That's where this resource collection can help. This section breaks down everything you need to know to prepare your homeschool student for college. It is geared towards the parents of older students whose children are beginning to consider life after high school. While to parents of freshmen, college may seem a world away, it is important to begin familiarizing yourself with this information early on, as many of the requirements need to be worked on prior to a child's senior year.

In this resource, you will find important information on things like the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and the Dantes Subject Standardized Tests (DSST), both college level preparation and credit granting tests. Learn also how to plan out a path to gaining a bachelor's degree, including guidance on selecting classes and evaluating credits offered. And of course, learn more about Study.com's College Accelerator plan, which enables students to earn real college credit, and dual credit, transferable to over 1500 universities around the country. This is an excellent way of getting a headstart on college, drastically reducing costs and the eventual burden of debt that college graduates face.
