Home School Families
Navigating the steps involved in preparing for college, finding schools that match a student's interest, applying, and navigating the financial aid process, are daunting for all families. It's even more challenging for home school families, who lack a school counselor to help guide them. I hope this website will help to fill that gap.
The guide section, which you can access by clicking the Roadmap button from any page, provides a cohesive overview of the major phases of college planning, while the blog features a weekly article on a timely topic. I also plan to address some of the unique aspects of the college application process that are faced by home school students in the future. Watch for them in the blog.
I have the greatest respect for families who commit the tremendous amount of time and energy required to home school their children. I wish you the best of luck and hope The Sidelines will help you guide your children to colleges that match their interests and abilities.
