  2. How wonderful! I was homeschooled beginning in 9th grade and it was the best learning experience of my life! If I could give three pieces of advice on homeschooling in highschool (from the perspective of a former student, not a parent), I’d say 1)Don’t be afraid, 2) Don’t lose the joy of learning, and 3)Begin with the end in mind. High school will look different if your student want to go on to a university than if he or she wanted to go on to say, join a missionary apprentice program like I did or to work a full-time job. Many blessings on your and your kids as you begin this new stage of your journey!
