Preparing for High School and Beyond

Are you Ready to Homeschool thru High School?


Simplification is the premise at Home Education Council of America.  How do you simplify something as complex as high school and college?

Dianne McLean, director for HECOA, has successfully graduated her children from homeschool and helped them get into college and university with one simplified checklist and a transcript – yes, with scholarships in hand! 

"Anyone who knows me, knows full well that I don't care for complicated forms or procedures," she says, "homeschooling high school has no secret passageway, it's a pretty straightforward road.  You just need to know where you are going and then understand how to get there with the least amount of detours and roadblocks."

Known for her "bootcamp" type of classes, Dianne breaks down everything you need to know about teaching high school into a 12-module intensive training – "High School and Beyond".  

Dianne has been helping homeschoolers for over a decade – and works with hundreds each year to prepare them for university admittance.  Universities are constantly changing their admissions policies – and what worked 5 or 10 years ago, may not work today.  Find out why CLEP and AP exams are not always the best idea, and discover something more solid and efficient to get those early credits and save money and time.  She will also reveal to you the most important things that universities look for during an application – it's not what you think!

The most important things you must teach your children to prepare them for life beyond high school are revealed in this intensive course.  What do they need to know and when do they need to know it?  You will learn everything about transcripts in a simple, straightforward manner.  You will NOT be overwhelmed with 200 pages of forms, or reading, reading, and more reading to understand how to prepare your child for homeschooling high school.  Dianne will show you how to get it all done and be successful using ONE checklist and a transcript!

This course is for adults and Dianne suggests that parents with children who are as young as 11 need to take this course (or as soon as they enter middle school) so that you can take advantage of every opportunity for your child and avoid wasting time and money.  "Advanced planning would have just made life even more sweeter, had I known then what I know now."
