High School of Your Dreams Guidebook
Nancy Nicholson

The 2019 Edition has been revised to include highly condensed versions of the Career Path E-Books and Course Resource E-Books, so it is no longer necessary to purchase these e-books separately. The 2019 Edition does not include lists of recommended books, web links, and course materials. It does include possible essay topics and experiential/volunteer projects, along with other resources previously available only in the e-books.

The High School of Your Dreams Guidebook is a step-by-step guide to planning your own high school curriculum to fit your student’s unique learning style, interests, and possible career goals. The High School of Your Dreams Guidebook introduces three basic approaches to high school:

  1. College Track: Flexible Textbook Approach;
  2. Community College/Vocational School: Independent Study Approach;
  3. Apprenticeship/School-to-Work: Experiential Approach.

A two-part Student Profile, one part answered by the student, one part by the parent, gauges the student’s interests and aptitudes and is followed by a guide to interpreting the results. The Guidebook then proceeds to guide you in developing a tentative four-year plan, choosing core and elective subjects, deciding which materials the student will use to learn those subjects, and creating a lesson plan for the materials. 

The Guidebook also covers the following general topics about homeschooling through high school: 

  • what is necessary for a homeschooled student to enter college;
  • converting homeschool study time into standard high school credit hours;
  • creating a high school transcript;
  • discerning career paths;
  • and incorporating volunteering and other types of experiential learning into a high school curriculum.

It is recommended that planning for high school begin as the student nears the end of eighth grade. Early planning will help the student to focus on his or her goals—building excitement for the coming high school years—and will give time for course and material selection. 

Includes reproducible blank forms and charts (From Freshman to Graduate Chart, Class Lesson Plan Form, Monthly Hours Chart, Academic Transcript, and Diploma). 186 pgs. 2019 Revised Edition. 8½"x11" Shrink-wrapped. Loose-leaf, 3-hole drilled.

“We received High School of Your Dreams yesterday and are thrilled with it. Ahhh, if only we could repeat high school ourselves, now, as homeschoolers. . . how different and precious those days could be. I wish there had been so many wondrous ideas available way back when we were venturing through high school! At least we can offer such blessings to our children, by the grace of God and ALL your blessed efforts! Thank you for giving us such an incredible road map for our own young ones as they journey toward adulthood!”

“Thank you, my son is so excited and looking forward to getting your high school curriculum. He has been homeschooling for three years and never had these kinds of options. We appreciate the GREAT SELECTIONS and PRICES. Compared to Switched on Schoolhouse, your courses are far superior and they are in line with Catholicism, not generic Christian!!!! WOW!”
