I always struggle with the tension between interest-led projects (or unit studies) and by-the-book. I was struck by the idea of turning passions into credits presented in "College Without High School" and I'd love more information on that process. More examples.

It looks like we'll put this seminar on in July. (Everyone is so busy with life with teens that it's hard to nail us all down in one spot!)
We'll be discussing CORE 40 (Indiana grad requirements), transcripts, different approaches to homeschooling teens, and college admission/dual credit. I already have one local admissions rep committed to speak. I'll keep everyone updated on our planning and how it turns out.
Those of you in NW Indiana, we'll probably be having it in Valparaiso.Carol
