This week's FAQ is:
Will homeschooling put my child at a disadvantage after they graduate?
Homeschooled students actually tend to excel in college and career environments, on the whole. Every child is different and may accomplish different things, but that’s true of public- and private-schooled students, too! Homeschooled students are afforded the same opportunities for scholarships, college admissions, and careers as their public-schooled counterparts, and the former stigma for home-education is becoming a thing of the past as more and more homeschoolers achieve success in college and in career fields. Home-education also allows you the flexibility to pursue your child’s talents and passions alongside their typical education, so that many home-educated students graduate high school already having completed plenty of volunteer hours, hands-on experience in career fields, accomplishments in sports, music, or other talent areas, entrepreneurial endeavors, and more.
