Home school High School and Making plans for College

Many people don't know that colleges are recruiting homeschoolers. We often think that because we are homeschooling, we are pretty different and unusual. We wonder how we are going to convince the colleges that they would like our children. It commonly ends up being the other way around. Colleges are looking for homeschoolers, though they find us a little difficult to locate.

Whenever you take a look at your homeschool magazines you will discover ads that are placed there by colleges. If you're on Facebook, you might find advertisements for colleges that want your homeschool kids. They are all over the place.

One of the ways to ensure colleges will recruit you is to notify them that you're a homeschooler. The quickest way to tell them is to have your child take the PSAT when they are a sophomore or a junior. It will ask them what their high school is, and you can have your child enter in the homeschool code. Colleges will begin to send your child mail, telling them that they would like them at their college.

Visiting colleges will become vital as the colleges start approaching you. It is critically important that you take your high school students to take a look at the colleges where they think they might attend.

Colleges change over time. I remember speaking with one of my friends about the college that my children were attending and how my son had organized a Jane Austen themed dance. She was just shocked because when she went to that same school nobody was allowed to dance. This particular college had changed over time.

Although I have been so happy with the college experience of my children, our college will also change over time. Even if you know the reputation of the college, you will still want to pay a visit to it because it can change. Even if it has been good in the past, it can change into something you do not appreciate. On the other hand, you might go for a visit and determine you like it even more.

You really can't tell everything about the college by looking at the college brochure. You certainly want to read everything you can regarding the college to see if it's even worthy of a visit. If you think it may be a good fit for your child, then you definitely want to visit to be certain what you have read is accurate.
