​Homeschool High School with Peace & Confidence.

​​Do you ever have doubts about
homeschooling high school?

I have the pleasure of talking with many homeschool families. 

So many people I talk to want to take the leap from the more rigid forms of schooling to the creative, exploratory, problem solving approach for their Out-of-the-Box Teens. 

They are afraid to take the step, worried they will make a mistake that’s hard to recover from in the high school years.

"​How do ​I help my teen to get better at his interest?"

"​How do I allow my teen to follow her interests and still hit the requirements?"

"​I don't know how to help my Out-of-Box Teen to be successful in school let alone the real world."

​​No matter how much I want to be traditional, it just doesn’t work for my students.

Sound familiar?

​I've said it many times!

Our homeschool began to evolve as a result of who our kids are and how it was to meet them where they are as learners.

The course really has helped calm my nerves this time around. In fact, it only took about 40 minutes before I was well on my way to having a good plan on paper.

​The online course Homeschooling High School by Design will take you through a system of ​six simple steps.

​Step 1: Create a custom plan for your Out-of-the-Box Teen

Step 3: ​Figure out how your high schooler's schedule works with the number of credits they are taking. Find ways to fit in the pursuit of their interests at the same time.

​​Here's Why You & Your Teen Will Get Better Results with the Group Coaching Option

​Group coaching for self-paced courses inspires action!

It's intense but productive!

  • External accountability- to get you working and keep going on material so ​you could meet ​your goals for taking the course in the first place
  • Coaching from ​me- the person ​you purchased the course from who ​you trust and want to learn from
  • Shared progress- within the group, ​ share​ ​your progress so ​you c​an get feedback from ​me and others in the community
  • Community & a cohort- with others who ​are following the same path, working together and offering ideas from their experience which is helpful because of the varied perspectives
  • Specific feedback- from the instructor on ​your own work through both the twice weekly video calls and in the online group format

I'm on a mission to help families to homeschool high school with peace and confidence.

The group coaching session is a way for me to do that using the framework of the Homeschooling High School by Design course.

The group coaching session will last ​four weeks from October 1- October 25, 2019.

Let me tell you my daughter's story.

Homeschooling High School by Design- young woman at a dressform draping a skirt

​Rebecca started sewing when she was 8.

It's the only ​activity she ever wanted to do more than once.

The Surprising Secret to Mentoring Out-of-the-Box Teens- Young girl at a sewing machine sewing lines on paper

​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.
