Homeschooling Through High School: An Interview with Mary Schofield

Vol. 51, Prg. 26–30
April 5–9, 2004

Mary Schofield, veteran homeschool mom and author of The High School Handbook, joins Mike Smith this week to share tips and encouragement for parents who want to homeschool their high schoolers. It’s a challenging task—but as a parent, you’re automatically qualified! That’s because you already have a vision for your family. All you need to do is define that vision and allow it to motivate your homeschool program. Start by asking some fundamental questions about why you’re homeschooling. Then map out a plan of action to achieve those goals. Finally, take advantage of Schofield’s wealth of practical knowledge on everything from lesson planning to the number-one thing parents forget when teaching a high schooler. When you focus on the big picture, you’ll discover the smaller details falling into place—and you’ll experience the rich rewards of homeschooling through high school.
