Homeschooling a Teen? Here is some GREAT College Prep Information!

Homeschooling during the high school years can be very exciting, and also very challenging.  As a home educator, you are wearing a dozen or more hats, and these intensify during the teen years.  It can be a daunting task to make sure that all the bases are covered.

I provide a wonderful workshop that will consolidate all the information that you need to know in a simple to use format, and will focus on the primary document that colleges want to see–The High School Transcript!

Join us as we demystify the process of taking your students through high school, and preparing them to excel in college and in life!

Holly Craw, a veteran home educator of over 22 years, has joined with Nicole Porter, admissions counselor for GCU, to bring together a dynamic discussion of the college admissions process. This event is especially recommended for parents of teens and pre-teens, but is open to families with younger children as well.

Nicole Porter has over ten years of experience in financial aid and college admissions. She will cover:

  • Admissions processes for universities and community colleges
  • Basic information needed to apply for federal financial aid and scholarships
  • As a bonus she will cover the highlights of Grand Canyon University.
  • This presentation is designed to de-mystify these elements of the college preparation process.

Holly will discuss the steps in transcript preparation:

· What is a transcript and why it is needed?
· Key components that colleges want to see
· Classes needed for college entrance
· Grades, credits, and record keeping
· Calculating the GPA
· Compiling the transcript
· Creating a diploma

You will be able to purchase a Materials and Resources packet with a number of GREAT tools for your college preparation for a minimal cost.

At the beginning of the session, you will have a tour of T4T, and opportunity to shop at the end. This workshop is a great way to see that you are covering the bases for college entrance with a solid preparation. You and your students will have a refreshed confidence to have a strong finish to the homeschooling years.
