Nothing makes me more happy than hearing how the support of our Homeschooling for College Credit community helped your family take the plunge and earn college credit! For Valentine’s Day today, I wanted to share some lovely messages that have appeared over on our Facebook page. If you haven’t started earning college credit yet, I hope you can draw encouragement from these parents whose kids all started with zero college credits and are accomplishing great things!!!
Anyad Definitely one glimmer from 2020 is that I think it really advanced online dual credit, made colleges become more competitive, offered great discounts, suspended testing, and opened more doors for homeschoolers!
Lisa Oldest had enough high school credits to graduate this year but elected to take a senior year to take the AP Latin test at the end of the year and some dual enrollment. She earned 7 Sophia credits, 2 CLEP tests (American History 2 and American Government) and 2 completed ASU EA classes. I was feeling down about this year and all of the challenges we’ve faced, but when I reflect, it really was a very good year in which a lot was accomplished.

Heike This fall semester our daughter took 5 Classes at the community college, 4 towards the AA, 1 towards a certificate. President’s List. 4 more classes in spring 2021 to finish AA and the certificate & graduate high school in May…Lord willing! . So proud of our girl! She worked hard!
Amy This year my son earned 12 credits through ASU and the local community college, 42 credits through Sophia, and 12 credits through CLEP/DSST (had to drive to the next state over to find an open testing center!)
