Hi friends, and welcome to another Tip Tuesday! Now that we’re in the trenches of preparing for high school I wanted to share my tips on what to do to prepare for high school, how to decide on coursework, create transcripts, and help planning the future course for your student.
Homeschooling through the upper grades can be an overwhelming and intimidating thought that can create alarm in some of the most relaxed homeschooling parents. A little planning will go a long way to creating an effective and positive high school experience for both you and your student.
You will want to discuss future goals and career ideas with your student. If college is in their future, make sure to take time to look at the entrance requirements for your prospective college so your student will be able to meet those requirements upon graduation from high school. Starting with your end goal in mind, build your curriculum to fit your goals and any state requirements.
You may also have your students take an aptitude test during 8th grade, or prior to the start of 9th grade. This is great in helping students find strengths and interests as they prepare for their adult careers. You can find free aptitude tests online. Use the tests as a guide in helping your student, but don’t let them deter students from pursing their interests.
