Everything You Need to Prepare Your Homeschooler for College Success

The transition from homeschooling children to preparing them for success in college deserves both planning and preparation. As the parent of a homeschooler, you have many issues to consider besides academic excellence: fulfilling other people's expectations and standards, tackling standardized tests and application essays, and introducing your homeschooler to the atmosphere of a college campus.

Now you can direct your child confidently and effectively. This important addition to Prima's acclaimed homeschooling series is filled with tips and insider advice from homeschooling families whose children now attend the schools of their choice. Inside are the answers to your questions, including how to:

Decide what type of college is right for your homeschooler

Develop the proper college-preparatory curriculum for your child

Learn what colleges expect from homeschooled applicants

Prepare your homeschooler for the admissions process
