This post contains affiliate links. PB & J Girl is in 8th grade this year but taking some 9th grade classes. She’s motivated for her studies and future career, so I read Cure the Fear of Homeschooling High School by Ann Karako to understand more about homeschooling high school and give her the best chance of success.
About Cure the Fear of Homeschooling High School by Ann Karako
This book was originally an ebook, which the author published in hard copy because so many people asked her to. The book is only about 75 pages long and includes plenty of blank forms to fill out as you plan your child’s high school career.
Karako breaks down the process of homeschooling high school into simple, bite-size pieces. She first asks parents to research the homeschool requirements their states have. Then, parents should research the requirements the colleges have that their children might apply to. From there, she advises parents on how to choose their children’s homeschool high school courses.
My Thoughts on This Book
Karako makes planning high school for your homeschooler manageable. If you’re overwhelmed by the process, you won’t be after reading this book. The best way to use this book is to stop after each chapter and complete the tasks Karako asks you to.
I printed off the forms, watched the video on finding what the colleges require, and then filled out the forms. Before reading this book, I had an idea of what courses my daughter should take, but now I have a more concrete plan.
Most people find homeschooling during the elementary school years manageable. However, they get intimidated by homeschooling in middle school and high school. This book helps parents realize that if they and their children want to continue homeschooling, there’s no reason not to homeschool all the way through until high school graduation.
I give Cure the Fear of Homeschooling High School by Ann Karako 5 out of 5 stars on the Mom’s Plans’ scale.
