Scholarships

Reducing the number of credits your teen has to take BEFORE they enroll will ALWAYS save you the most money.  But even families with a robust Homeschooling for College Credit plan should try to bring their out-of-pocket costs down to zero!

When I suggest your family start applying for scholarships, I don’t mean googling a couple and pumping out an essay the year before college starts – I mean WEEKLY and consistently applying every week for as long as your teen is enrolled!! Most scholarships are open to prospective AND enrolled students.  Once you’ve stopped Homeschooling for College Credit, your new job is to apply, apply, and apply for scholarships!

Personal story:  all of my college-aged kids have earned scholarships in some amount and none are academic rock-stars!
