Introducing the 2015 Homeschool High School Blog Hop

Homeschooling through the high school years places fear in the hearts of many a home schooler both veteran and new. I remember years ago once people were used to the idea of us home educating the very next question was always "Are you going to homeschool for High School?" or "How will you teach ... ?"   

A couple of months ago a few home school friends were asking one another for help in finding information on home educating through the high school years when we realised that many of us had graduated students from our home schools but had not really shared our experience on home educating through the high school years, so we talked about sharing our knowledge with you and create a keepsake for ourselves on our blogs.  There are 18 of us on this journey and we will be sharing what we have learned along the way, what we are learning now and what we aim for over the years to come.

Home Schooling in High School is a time of great change in many homes, one that can be exciting, daunting and fearful.  Our aim is to lift the veil on homeschooling through the high school years, in order to equip and encourage you. You are more than able to home school your children all the way through to graduation.
