    One of the newest trends in homeschooling is that of the dual enrollment credits. It really is an amazing way to get ahead of the game, which explains why the concept has taken off in the past decade. This method of enrolling in a college class while still in high school can truly be life changing as well as budget saving. As the cost of attending college has soared over the last few years, this option almost has become a necessity to some homeschooling families. But you probably still have a few questions about dual credit before you head off to sign upÖ.our aim is to answer them!!

    Should every homeschooled high schooler take dual enrollment courses?

    Not necessarily. There are probably three main reasons that dual enrollment might not be the appropriate option for youÖ.
    1) If you donít plan on getting any further education after high school. The idea behind DUAL credit is that you are able to earn both high school and college credit with one course. If college isnít in your future, then this may seem like an unnecessary step
    2) If the college you plan to attend doesnít accept dual enrollment credits. A meeting with the academic advisor from the four year university from which you intend to receive your Bachelorís degree is vital. During this meeting you can ask what their policies are concerning transfers, how the various courses will transfer, and any suggestions that they have for which courses should be taken. Along these same lines, if a student plans on attending graduate school, many competitive universities will want to see that a student has taken a heavy load

    Eeeek! Your cute, sweet smelling, little preschooler has turned into a giant-footed, food-scarfing, moody teenager(I swear it happens overnight!) and you just wrapped up Middle School. Now what??

    What lies ahead? High School. What to do? So many choices. Do you send them to public school because you have heard that teaching high school is hard? If you had trouble in high school, you may be feeling that you arenít qualified to teach the subjects you struggled with yourself. So, do you throw in the towel and stop homeschooling?

    You Can Do This!

    Guess what? You can totally homeschool high school and do it with ease! Take it from someone who towed the line when it came to high school. I either had classes that I did fantastic in or I had classes (read: chemistry and algebra) that haunt me still to this day. Was I nervous when it came time to homeschool high school. Yep. Did I want to send them to public school? Nope. They didnít want to go, and I didnít want to send them when they were doing so well with homeschooling.

    The great news is that homeschooling high school doesnít have to mean ďteachingĒ every subject yourself. There are so many outside resources for homeschooling high school. For some reason, outsourcing is overlooked as a key benefit of homeschooling.
