Homeschooling through high school allows teens to take charge of their education, right?  What does this look like from the student’s perspective?  These college students, all homeschooled through high school, share their unvarnished experiences as teenagers who chose to homeschool high school. When did they start to feel that they were in charge of their education? What kind of support and strategies  helped them gain autonomy? What decisions were shared with their parents, and which were solely their own? How different was the homeschooling experience at 14/15 years old (roughly a freshman) and at 17/18 years old (senior)? What experiences helped them stand out to college admissions’ officers? Join us, with your teens, for a different look at homeschooling.
