Homeschooling for College
Your guide to preparing and packaging your Out-of-the-Box, creative teens’s personalized high school for a winning college admission
Does any of this sound familiar?
It’s time to start thinking about college and you’re in a panic.
How do I create a transcript from all the unusual things my teen has done in high school?
I don’t even know where to start.
What does the transcript even look like?
And will any college take my teen seriously?
You have doubts about your ability to turn your teen’s high school into a college admission- especially with your teen whose approach to school is so different.
So many people I talk to want to take the leap from the more rigid forms of what they think high school should like to the creative, exploratory, problem solving approach for their Out-of-the-Box Teens.
But, they worry about college.
“We did some amazing things in high school, but how do I turn it all into something colleges will accept?”
“My teen followed their interest, now what?”
“I don’t know how to help my Out-of-Box Teen to be successful in school let alone get into college.”
“Will colleges even understand our homeschool if I don’t do the transcript well?”
“How do I fit my out of the box teen into all the boxes on a college application?”
“And what if my teen wants to apply to an elite school?”
I need help!
What if you could…
Homeschool high school without worry and transform your teen’s out of the box high school experiences into a winning college admission.
You Don’t Have to Sacrifice Creativity & Freedom in Order to Have a Successful Homeschool High School Experience and it’s easier than you think to present a customized high school on a college application.
Let go of the anxiety you feel surrounding your teen’s application to college and learn how to speak to college admission’s officers in a language they understand.
Homeschooling with a focus on critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity prepares our out-of-the-box, differently wired, and gifted teens well for their future and your teen can still compete for college admission.
In fact, colleges don’t want to hear that your teens tried to be valedictorian for four years.
They want to know what your teen did with the opportunities that were given to them.
They want to see something extraordinary.
All you have to do is show them.

What Happy Moms Are Saying
Hear from homeschooling moms like you!
Who knew homeschooling high school would be so much fun? I love Heather’s approach to planning an academically sound and inspiring high school education for my teens.
If you’re hoping to streamline and simplify the college application process, I can’t think of a better way to do it than through Homeschooling for College by Design. The Transcript Builder alone is worth the cost of the course. It’s magic!
– Sarah Mackenzie, Read Aloud Revival
Homeschooling for College by Design not only gives you the information you need to homeschool high school well, it also provides you with the confidence you need to make it happen. I can get organized, but Heather does a great job putting my fears at ease.
– Pam Barnhill, Your Morning Basket
Heather Woodie provides homeschooling parents a rare gift – not telling you what to do, while simultaneously convincing you that you don’t have to do everything. Break free from thinking you must jump on the AP bandwagon! Release yourself from the idea that you have to test, test, and test again! Enroll in dual credit classes or don’t!
You and your student can craft a college preparation program that suits you (isn’t that why you started homeschooling in the first place?), navigate the often-complex application process, and achieve the results you want.
She wisely reminds participants to include their student in every step of the process – “This is your student’s job..” she says of creating a Common Application account. This is music to every college academic dean’s ears, as too many students enter our halls having had a parent take all the important steps, make all the significant decisions, and not, in Heather’s words, given them “tools for the next phase.”
A well-prepared college student is one who can not only read, write, and do ‘rithmetic, but who can also evaluate choices, advocate for themselves, and take initiative. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding, and Heather’s pudding is two college students enjoying their academic experience in not only two top tier colleges, but more importantly, the colleges of their dreams.
– Amy O’Dowd, Former Homeschooling Parent & Assistant Dean of Student Services, Ithaca College
I just wanted to send you a quick and big thank you for your help with the transcript and Common App! My daughter was accepted at her dream school and has been awarded 3 scholarships!
Your course gave me confidence to forge ahead. It was my daughter’s first and only choice for college making it a stressful situation for me!

I’m on a mission to help families with Out-of-the-Box Teens homeschool high school with peace and confidence.
Homeschooling four of our own Out-of-the-Box Teens, two of whom graduated and are thriving at their dream schools with large scholarships and an Ivy League admission, I want to mentor other families to homeschool differently with purpose and peace.
I went from a public school science educator with a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, Secondary Education, to homeschooling four kids in a project based, relaxed environment.
If I can leave behind convention and homeschool Out-of-the-Box Teens, meeting them where they are, so can you!
Meet Our Out-of-the-Box Teens!
Our oldest is a junior Purdue University with the highest merit scholarship and honors school designation.
He was admitted to the School of Liberal Arts for a degree in Professional Writing and he’s thriving with a minor in Anthropology. He dreams of being a technical writer post college.
He also has a chronic illness which provided a plot twist to his story and continues to give us a lot of experience tapping established protocols for unique students.
Our second oldest, was accepted early admission to Cornell University and she is in her third year working toward a Bachelor of Science in Fiber Science and Apparel Design.
She’s now an honors student doing undergraduate research with a minor in art.
From many years of a project based course of study to an Ivy League design program, her story is an exciting one.

Let tell you my daughter Rebecca’s story.
Rebecca started sewing when she was 8.
It’s the only activity she ever wanted to do more than once.
We found ways to explore sewing with her, always pressing into new skills.
As her skills grew, we provided opportunities for her through low and no cost community efforts, websites, and books.
At 10 she began drafting. At 13 she was entering design contests and she started her sewing school.
Her design was featured in a curated collection with known adult designers and design students.
She taught 10 students in 4 sewing classes from age 13-18. The income from her sewing school allowed her to buy new equipment like a serger.
Throughout high school, she took a course we created called Sewing & Design. She had five credits of this course on her transcript when she applied to design school.
She took on the portfolio with research and designs to help children with sensory disorders.
Rebecca’s experiences and accomplishments were rewarded with one of roughly 25 slots in the Fiber Science & Apparel Design at Cornell University.
In design school, she’s thriving! Rebecca has won art contests, made the dean’s list, designed a head turner for the annual runway show, and secured a research assistant job in the world renowned costume collection.
Here’s the thing friends, we can homeschool Out-of-the-Box Teens with peace & confidence.
And I want to show you how and to cheer you on along the way!
