7. Keep College In Mind

During their teen years, some homeschooled students start attending a conventional high school in order to receive a high school diploma.

If your child remains homeschooled during her high school years, her academic background may be a competitive advantage during the college admissions process. Check with colleges to see whether there are specific requirements for homeschooled students. Be prepared to provide a detailed description of your child's homeschool courses so that colleges can gain a better understanding of her unique education.
