Scheduling Homeschool High SchoolAs a homeschool parent, if you are just entering the high school years or if you have already begunthere are a few scheduling necessities to keep track of, plan for, and stay up to date with! Itsimportant for you not to drop the ball on deadlines plans and requirements. Here are a few benchmarkactivities you should make sure you are planning for when it comes to the high school years. For yourstudents freshman year of high school make sure to choose demanding curriculum! Selectingchallenging material will develop a greater flexibility for when it comes time to college selection. Makesure you choose curriculum that will enhance your students proficiency in math and writing!When it comes to sophomore year, give some thought to scheduling your student for the PSAT. Thiswill give your student practice for their junior year when the PSAT is their priority. The PSAT is only $13sophomore year so it is well worth the experience! As I have already mentioned during you studentsjunior year, the PSAT should be their priority. If taken in October, it will allow them to compete for aNational Merit Scholarship; preparing for it thoroughly can seriously pay off! You can sign-up at yourlocal public or private homeschool for your student to take the test. There is only one opportunity forthat junior year so make sure you sign up!The senior year goal is to fill out college applications and register for more tests! Yet, more test, I knowit seems tough, but doing well will make the following years easier on your pocketbook. Try to finish allapplications before Christmas if you want to be first in line for financial aid and scholarships. Yourstudent needs to take either the SAT or the ACT. Both is usually not necessary but if you would likeyour student to take both so they have more opportunities to do well, by all means encourage it! Trynot to burn your student out though, remember high school can be stressful for them, just like it canseem stressful for you.In the midst of all these important plans make sure to schedule free time for your students. It will helpthem maintain joy and independence. In our family we worked our heavy academic subjects 4 days aweek. The 5th day was when we focused more on delight directed learning, which meant that eachweek we had a really exciting and successful day, encouraging our children to do what they loved.Remember you are your students academic advisor, you are not a dictator or a master of all subjects!That should be very freeing for you! All you have to do is make sure you are helping your student tolearn! In my experience the best way to help them learn is to help them love learning!Visit http://homeschoolthruhighschool.com/ gives comprehensive and in-depth details on subjects likehomeschool middle school.
