As a college-bound home school student or as a parent homeschooling teacher, there are a few things that you should consider now. Continuing planning can mean less worries later!
1. Make sure you take ACT or SAT immediately if you have not already. Give the student some practice tests for the actual test day.
2. Insert ending contact with copy. There are templates available online or in books, but you can design a copy with Excel spread sheet and get a very professional looking document. Get creative! Remember, you need to take your homeschooling experience and make it a "fit" description of public school. Use a real life experience for your credit rating. For example, if your daughter helps in preparing a meal and planning, give him the mark "Homemaking class."
3. Include other information with your copy describing a positive description of student homework training: reading of classical literature and historical choices, textbooks and text books and authors. Continuing surveys in upper secondary schools are also a wise point as they add the official look to your copy.
4. Start making programs for college that you are considering. Most universities offer academic strength based on ACT / SAT levels and GPA in upper secondary schools. The deadlines for applying are usually between December and February, so check now to see if your student school meets the requirements. If your test score is not high enough, take it back! Most students raise their score by several levels when they return to ACT / SAT.
5. Make plans to register your FAFSA (free application for Federal Student Aid) as soon as after January 1, as possible, which means getting your tax information right now. This application will determine the significant financial assistance of the student's package: whether he meets the conditions for Pell Grant, for government grants or institutional support.
