High School of Your Dreams Guidebook
Nancy Nicholson

High School of Your Dreams was developed by Nancy Nicholson as a guide to designing a high school curriculum that fits 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.

The High School of Your Dreams 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; 
  • incorporating volunteering and other types of experiential learning into a high school curriculum; 
  • and finding materials to teach courses. 

The second part of the High School of Your Dreams Guidebook is a step-by-step guide to planning your own high school curriculum. 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 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. 

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. 

To provide additional resources for planning an individualized high school plan, CHC also offers Career Path E-Books and Course Resource E-books. A printed version of Course Resource E-Book 7: World History is included for free in the Guidebook as a sample.

126 pgs. 2015 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!”

“We were concerned about starting high school, especially without scripted lesson plans; but what a relief High School of Your Dreams turned out to be! Firstly, we wanted our son to have more selection than many programs offered, and High School of Your Dreams offered an incredible array of resources in dozens of courses. Secondly, the course planning forms allowed us to both plan and allow our son some level of autonomy and accountability. Lastly, finances were a major concern; with ten children at home and perhaps more to come, the education budget is tight. We weren't constrained by enrollment fees, transcript fees, family fees or any other fee.... Now planning our second year (actually his junior year) we are excited and so confident in our decision. I just wish we hadn't wasted a year and a fortune elsewhere! For years I supplemented with CHC but didn't have the confidence to switch fully, not knowing how much I cheated my children and myself.”
