This is my “real college prep” talk for parents – NOT about the ACT or SAT, or about counting credits or transcript preparation, which are important, of course. This is about getting children ready for LIFE at college and beyond. With two through college and one beginning his senior year of college, Amanda has learned from personal experience how to help kids make the transition successfully. The high school years are vital in the transition from homeschooling to pursuing a college degree, and there are plenty of things that you can easily work on during this time. Preparing them for classroom lectures, “interesting” professors, educational bureaucracy, responding in new situations, and so much more – these are vital to the success of many kids in college. Amanda takes time to explain these and more, and shares her heart about the importance of getting them ready for life, not just a diploma.
