SESSION: POST-SECONDARY ALTERNATIVES FOR HOMESCHOOLED GRADS
What if my child is not university bound? My child isn’t particularly academic; what are her options if she doesn’t want to go to college after she graduates from homeschool? My kid doesn’t know what he wants to do! How do we plan for post-secondary school?
As homeschoolers we actively seek the best educational opportunities for our children. When looking at post-secondary options, university is often seen as the gold-standard but it isn’t really for all students, is it? Let’s look at options for your child if they don’t know what they want to do, aren’t ready yet for college or university, or if they GASP should want to follow skills and giftings that don’t take them on a traditional post-secondary journey.
