Can a Homeschooler get into college?
One of homeschooling parent's worst fears is: have I done enough to help get my child into college. Ok, maybe I am projecting my fear, but I do know some other parents who share this fear. Well, we have actually now taken a partial step toward alleviating this fear. Last night DD took her placement exams at the community college. Mind you DD is technically a Sophomore in high school, but it has been my plan that she begin working on her Associates degree in the last two years of high school and then transfer to a four year school for her Bachelor's. She then has it planned to go on for her Master's in Library Science at Simmons College in Boston (yes, this may be a little specific and hopeful, but she actually has already toured the campus and talked to a professor there and I think her heart is set). She placed well on the exam. So I can begin to breathe a little easier. Next step will be registration for either summer session or fall and then it is up to her from there . . . Now, I just have to worry about her brother. That one may be a little more complicated.
