"Homeschooling the High School Years"

Help, My Student is in High School!

It happens to everyone.  It's inevitable.  Every one of our children is going to grow up and enter high school. They will enter the high school years.  The high school years represent a launching point for our children where they prepare for the future they will pursue as adults. So, what are we supposed to do to prepare our children for the future?  How do these years help to provide a "good" initial launch into adulthood - college, vocation, business, family?

Join us this month as Shelly shares what to expect for the high school years in homeschooling. Shelly has successfully counsels homeschool families and helps guide their high school four-year plans - a role she's held for more than 20 years through Integrity Christian School.  During this meeting, we will discuss:

  • What are the right subjects to have your high school student take to be prepared?

  • How much is enough and when do parents know that they prepared their children for the future?

  • What kinds of tests must they be prepared to take?

  • What do I do if my child is either above or below nominal grade level studies?

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

  • Which colleges accept homeschooled students?

  • How does their transcript affect their options in the future?

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

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.

Her passion comes from 3 John 1:4, "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth." This inspires her to help mentor families to raise up Godly children and equip them to live victorious lives for Christ.
