"Homeschooling the Senior Year"

Now What?  My Student is a Senior in High School!

It happens to everyone.  It's inevitable.  Every one of our children is going to grow up and at some point, they will be a high school senior.   Pay attention, because their future depends on a proper foundation. So, what are we supposed to do to prepare our children for the future.  How does that final year in high school determine the "goodness" of the initial launch into adulthood - college, vocation, family?

Join us this month as Shelly shares what to expect for your high school senior. Shelly has successfully counseled homeschool families and helped guide their students to achieve their post-graduate plans for more than 12 years through Integrity Christian School.  During this meeting, we will discuss:

  • How much is enough - how does a parent determine whether or not they've done enough?

  • What does the student need to finish their pre-college education well?

  • What subjects should be taught this final year and which tests matter for their future?

  • What to do if your child is below grade level or above grade level at this late stage in the game,

  • How to balance roles of teacher and parent in order to keep the heart of your children soft, and

  • Which colleges accept homeschooled students.

You will definitely want to come and hear about this exciting talk as we discuss teaching our children during their senior year.

Shelly Kitada is wife to high school sweetheart Michael (married for 30 years) and mother to 3 Godly children (homeschooled from kindergarten through high school and on to college).

Shelly has served as the Administrator and Mentor for the last 12 plus years at Integrity Christian School, an on-going ministry of Cornerstone Church in Anaheim.
