Synopsis

Everything You Need to Prepare Your Homeschooler for College Success
The transition from homeschooling children to preparing them for success in college deserves both planning and preparation. As the parent of a homeschooler, you have many issues to consider besides academic excellence: fulfilling other people's expectations and standards, tackling standardized tests and application essays, and introducing your homeschooler to the atmosphere of a college campus.
Now you can direct your child confidently and effectively. This important addition to Prima's acclaimed homeschooling series is filled with tips and insider advice from homeschooling families whose children now attend the schools of their choice. Inside are the answers to your questions, including how to:
·Decide what type of college is right for your homeschooler
·Develop the proper college-preparatory curriculum for your child
·Learn what colleges expect from homeschooled applicants
·Prepare your homeschooler for the admissions process

"Don't start homeschooling your college-bound teenager without this book. Cafi Cohen is your homeschooler's personal guidance counselor." —Maureen McCaffery, editor in chief, Homeschooling Today
"A must-read for homeschool parents exploring higher-education options for their children. This book will equip, encourage, and empower parents and their students." —Tom Ertz, director, Marion (Iowa) Home School Assistance Program
"An outstanding resource for homeschooling teens and their parents. With its invaluable resource listings and handy checklists, this book will allay many of the concerns of college-bound homeschoolers." —Jeanne Biggerstaff, homeschooling parent and president, Oregon Home Education Network
