Homeschooling has been growing in popularity and reputation, and it's becoming generally acknowledged that kids that graduate from a home education program really do have a high quality and well-rounded education. Their transcripts look great, they're accepted into all kinds of universities and colleges, and they've been able to focus their studies on the areas most valuable to their plans. Many even get a head start on college credits thanks to the many dual enrollment options; and homeschoolers are known as college students who have already learned efficient study skills and can manage their own time and learning well.
But it's worth recognizing that home educating is also a wonderful way to make sure those same graduates have plenty of experience in the kinds of life skills they'll need to find and keep a job, build their careers, manage their own homes, and contribute positively to their communities.
Join me at The Homeschool Post for the rest of this post about the areas of essential life skills I believe teens should have a handle on by the time they graduate high school, and how these skills can be fostered in the homeschool setting.
