One of the questions I’m asked the most is if I’m planning to keep homeschooling through high school. I think most people wonder if students homeschooled through high school and don’t have the official diploma can actually go to University.
Well, have no fear! Sarah is here!
Sarah Rainsberger calls herself the “homeschool guidance/university admissions counselor.” She has spent countless hours learning the ins and outs of post-secondary admissions – specifically for homeschoolers. Generously, she has compiled all her information and knowledge together in a couple of websites.
I have to quote her here:
“There’s nothing wrong with going to high school, earning a high school diploma and applying to university in the traditional way. But what if you knew you that was just one possible path you could choose? That’s right, choose. We’re not used to thinking of high school as a choice, but it is. It’s simply a choice that’s often made for us because we don’t know we have options.”
Ready to learn about your choices?
http://universityadmissions.ca/ – This is a Canada-wide website. There is SO much information here. Lists of open and distance universities, how to get into university for many different groups (homeschoolers, university transfers, international, open universities, and more). She’s provided detailed information specifically for homeschooling families in Canada to understand what we need to do and how to help our kids pursue a post-secondary education.
www.rainsberger.ca – Focused on Ontario, this website has LOTS of great information for anyone planning to educate their kids at home past Grade 8. A huge list of FAQs about homeschooling for highschool, how to get into university as a homeschooler, and a huge package that you can print out.
Thank you so much Sarah for all your amazing hardwork for us here in the alternative education world!
