How to Homeschool High School (It’s an Education, Not a Rat Race)

How to Homeschool High School (It’s an Education, Not a Rat Race) is part of this year’s Homeschool 101 track (sponsored by WORLD News Group and Operation Christmas Child).

What does a great high school education look like? If you’ve worried that it means giving up teaching in a way that fits your family, and transforming into a Ms. Gradgrind, demanding “facts, and nothing but facts,” worry no more. It’s entirely possible to create a high school experience that preserves the joy of learning while preparing each student for the appropriate next step in life. We’ll look at the following:

  • the primary purpose of the high school years
  • your role
  • things your student must know before graduating
  • records, transcripts, and gap years
  • interesting learning opportunities for homeschooled teens
  • and more.

You’ll learn which requirements are important; how to decide what each student should study; and how to tailor the high school experience to fit the student’s interests, aptitudes, and future plans. You’ll leave with the confidence that you and your teen can homeschool through high school with joy!
