High School of Your Dreams Guidebook
Nancy Nicholson

Consistent with CHC’s understanding that Our Lord has created each student as a unique individual, High School of Your Dreams was developed by Nancy Nicholson as an approach to high school that can be tailored to fit virtually any learning style and goal. The expanded 2015 program consists of three essential elements: the Guidebook, the Career Path E-Books, and the Course Resource E-Books. Read on to learn more about the High School of Your Dreams Guidebook.


The High School of Your Dreams Guidebook is the “instruction manual” for planning a complete high school program for your student. The Guidebook offers a step-by-step introduction to three basic “study tracks,” which can be adapted to each student to aid him in discerning and following his unique vocation:

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

The Guidebook explains how to use the Career Path E-Books and Course Resource E-Books (purchased separately) in order to plan and proceed with your high school program. Topics covered include what subjects are required for high school graduation, how credits are granted, compiling and using transcripts, documenting achievement, and more.

The 50-page “Stepping Up to High School: A Step-by-Step Guide” included in the Guidebook provides detailed guidance for developing a tentative four-year plan and a schedule for freshman coursework. 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.

Bonus: A printed version of Course Resource E-Book 7: World History is included for free in the Guidebook to give you a sampling of the comprehensive nature of each Course Resource E-Book!

126 pgs. 2015 Revised Edition. 8½"x11" Shrink-wrapped. Loose-leaf, 3-hole drilled.

“We had three kids graduate from home school. Our daughter is majoring in Pre-Med. She is employed as a Gymnastics Coach and runs her own business teaching music. Our son . . . is graduating in June from college with degrees in Geology and Fine Arts. He also runs his own business in computer technology for construction general contractors. Our other son is a construction superintendent. He has his AA in Construction Management and has his certificates in Welding, C.A.D. and as an E.M.T. We just finished homeschooling all the way through high school the youngest of our five children. We tried several programs, but the best we ever used was [High School of Your Dreams from Catholic Heritage Curricula].”

“With 'High School of Your Dreams,' [our daughter] ... could use real world experiences as part of her study. For instance, we had a dairy goat with a non-simple case of mastitis. This required extensive reading, research, testing, and some involvement with the vet which counted for Biology/Microbiology credit. The experience was so effective, that 6 months later when visiting with some medical students, they were impressed with my daughter's knowledge of microbiology. They said she could easily pass 1st semester Microbiology in college. Another example . . . my daughter taught 2nd grade--she proceeded to develop teaching materials and observe the kids so that she could adjust methods and materials to be effective. Hence, Early Childhood Development credits. My other daughter is working at the vet clinic as a tech helping with surgeries, exams, x-rays, prescriptions; forget the dissections in Biology Lab--she is participating in live surgeries which she enjoys much better . . . [We had] no accredited diploma, but experienced no difficulty in gaining college admission.”
