Do you have a high schooler in your home education program? As teacher and parent, preparing your student for graduation and beyond is a significant task. Today on Home School Heartbeat, Mike Farris joins HSLDA President Mike Smith to discuss a new resource to help your student earn advanced placement credit.
Today, Mike Farris is with us to talk about an exciting opportunity for homeschoolers, being brought to you by HSLDA and Patrick Henry College. Mike, thanks for joining us today.
It’s good to be with you!
We’ve just launched a brand new program for homeschoolers, called the Patrick Henry College Prep Academy. Tell our listeners about it, please!
This is a program that allows parents to give their students high level courses for which they can also get college credit. This is designed to give homeschooling families the way to get advance placement college credit for the high schools courses just like public schools do for the kids who are taking AP course in those schools. Homeschool kids are very capable of advance level study where you get both high and college work done at the same time. And AP courses are the way to do that and Patrick Henry College and HSLDA has teamed up to give our community the opportunity to do AP exams.
We’ve launched the program this semester with a course in US government that’ll be offered again this coming fall, along with a number of other courses, so people should go to the website www.phcprep.org and find out what the courses are and be able to get enrollment information.
Mike, thank you for joining us today. We’re all excited about the PHC Prep Academy. We’ll talk more about it next time. And until then, I'm Mike Smith.
