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 puts those fears to rest and helps parents see the real opportunities in front of them.

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 is currently employed by or has professional working relationships with Franklin University (Ohio), Johnson and Wales University (North Carolina), Excelsior College (New York), and South Piedmont Community College (North Carolina).

  • Homeschooling for College Credit in [Your State]  If your audience consists of homeschoolers from one state, choose this topic.
