Lab internships. Writing a novel. Collaborations with working artists. Screening own films at professional film fests. Independent research. Building and developing new tech. Producing student-run Shakespeare plays. All these activities and more have been completed by local teens who chose to homeschool through high school. These teens used their time to pursue deep interests. How does it work? How do families find classes and curriculum for their teen? How do you make the transcript? What about college? What do colleges want from homeschoolers? How soon should homeschoolers start planning for college?   Maria Galo and Lisa Gurrola will explain how to help teens organize their studies, build their transcript for college, and create for themselves fabulous opportunities to explore their passions-- all the while developing into the kind of intellectually curious person that colleges really, really want. Lisa Gurrola is a professional college admissions counselor who helps homeschooled and traditional students prepare college applications. Maria Galo is president of Teen Learning Lab of Greater Chicago, which offers interesting and challenging courses for homeschooled high school students. Both Lisa and Maria have homeschooled their own children to selective, prestigious colleges.
