As a parent of a teen who is heading in to high school, you might feel a little fearful or intimidated. You might be afraid you'll make a mistake, or leave out an important step, and your teen won't be able to get into college and succeed in life. Relax! This short course is a quick guide to everything you need to know, with tips to guide you into deeper research. As a teacher and school principal for over 30 years, and having helped scores of families in the homeschool community in Pennsylvania, I have had these conversations many times and am confident that what I share here will help you get started on this next phase of homeschooling. You CAN graduate your teen from homeschool!
This lesson is a quick overview, and then covers English and Social Studies (history)

This is an optional "bonus" lesson that explains the type of curriculum we use in our small school. It works great for many homeschoolers as well. Not a commercial, but just introducing you to a curriculum that might a good fit for your teen.
We will explain the differences between AP, CLEP, Dual Enrollment, and Honors courses
I have been a high school math and science teacher and school administrator for over 30 years. In Pennsylvania, where I live, homeschool students meet with an evaluator once a year to review and certify their progress, and I have worked with hundreds of homeschool students over the years. I also have five children of my own, who at various times have been homeschooled or been enrolled in the school where I teach. I created and manage a website with resources to support schools, families, and students who use the PACE curriculum.
