Jennifer Cook-DeRosa, M.S. is the founder and executive director of Homeschooling for College Credit. Homeschooling for College Credit is an online support 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 20 years of experience as a college administrator 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 obstacle in front of them, and that’s to help their kids get 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 been married for 25 years and have 4 sons, all homeschooled since Day 1. All of their sons have earned college credit in high school, and collectively her family has 9 degrees from 7 different colleges.
