Jennifer Cook-DeRosa, M.S.


Jennifer Cook-DeRosa, M.S. is the founder and Executive Director of Homeschooling for College Credit. Homeschooling for College Credit is a robust online community that is free to join and run entirely by volunteers.  Each year, her social organization helps thousands of homeschooling families learn how to inject college credit into their homeschool program.

Jennifer brings 25 years of leadership experience as a college administrator, advisor, teacher, and homeschooling parent to Homeschooling for College Credit.

Jennifer’s inspirational teaching style encourages parents to reconsider the wisdom of popular college propaganda.  While others are distracting parents with the fear of their kids being able to get into college, Jennifer helps parents tackle the real challenges of getting their kids out of college!

Through resourceful high school planning, Jennifer teaches parents how to use their time wisely, increase efficiency, bring the goalpost closer, and pay cash for college.

Jennifer and her husband have 4 sons, all homeschooled since Day 1. Their sons all began earning college credit in high school, and collectively her family has 11 degrees from 8 different colleges.

Disclosure: Jennifer has professional relationships or associations with a number of colleges and universities. In the event that one of these relationships represents a conflict of interest, Jennifer will refer you to another member of Homeschooling for College Credit for assistance.
