Keeps You Accountable
In the busy life of a homeschool parent there are always so many tasks dividing our attention. Working with a coach keeps you on track and focused. By purchasing resources or reserving time for consulting, you are making a commitment to spend time on high school and college planning. This motivation can help avoid last minute panic and stress.
College costs rise each year with many families now paying over $100,000 to $200,000 for a college for just one child. Sadly many students who start college don’t finish in four years, in fact just over half finish within six years and many never graduate at all. Careful high school preparation and college selection can lower costs and increase the chance a student will graduate. With such a major investment on the line for many families it makes sense to seek out the best information possible.
Homeschooling high school and navigating the college admissions process can be complicated. Hiring a consultant can save you time and improve your result. At Homeschool Success we offer many levels of support from free articles to personalized coaching so you can choose what is right for your family.
No two students are the same. While there is plenty of general information out there about homeschooling and college admissions, much of it may not be appropriate for your student’s specific needs. Some key student characteristics that encourage parents to seek out personalized advice: learning disabled, gifted, special medical needs, unmotivated, aiming for highly selective colleges, high financial need, and/or an interest in an unusual major or college activity.
Parents and teens don’t always find it easy to work together. Having a neutral third party provide specialized information and deadlines can make the process easier.
