Help! Am I qualified to teach high school?
Sometimes, those four years of high school can loom large at the beginning, perhaps because, for the first time, we are thinking in terms of four years rather than one. Imagine how overwhelmed we would have been in kindergarten to think of all the territory that we had to cover between first and fourth grades: Numbers, addition, subtraction, borrowing, carrying, multiplication, division, fractions, and so on for each subject. But, just as with the first four years of elementary school, we have four years to cover the academics necessary for a sound high school education, one year at a time. We can help you formulate a plan, using High School of Your Dreams.
Survey responses indicate that Catholic homeschoolers want a four-year high school program that can be made to fit the student, not one in which the student is made to fit the program. A course of study designed to "fit all" often fits none. One can expect a happier educational outcome with the High School of Your Dreams, since those selecting courses, materials, and approaches enjoy a close familiarity with the student!

I was personally homeschooled from 5th grade through highschool. For highschool my parents and I chose my own curriculum and courses to study. (I received) a BS from Michigan State University in Animal Science with high honors. Afterwards, I went to University of Missouri-Columbia (for) an MS in Animal Science, also with high honors. If I had not been married and starting a family, I would have pursued a PhD. I am now a stay at home mother homeschooling 4 kids with a set of twins on the way. I write this to help encourage other parents with highschool age children wondering about their ability to homeschool through highschool. My mother had a highschool diploma and some college, my dad had a BS in chemistry… Throughout highschool I was very independent in choosing my courses, books, and learning the material. We did a lot of real life learning through 4-H, chores, volunteer activities and other responsibilities. Being homeschooled through highschool was a blessing for me! —S.K.
