You need a neutral third party to help you plan. HS4CC was started to help parents make independent choices. We want you to make the best decision for your family with informed consent, so we do our very best to provide you with all the “how” with none of the selling.
We provide consulting for you for 4 primary reasons.
- You need a neutral third party to help you plan. Hiring a company that sells products to offer you advice is not advice, it’s a sales pitch! Asking a college to help you is not advice, it’s an enrollment pitch. HS4CC was started to help parents make independent choices. We want you to make the best decision for your family with informed consent, so we do our very best to provide you with all the “how” with none of the selling.
- Sometimes, parents want more help than can be provided inside our Facebook groups. We respect a family may want private guidance regarding things that they don’t want to discuss in public. We also know that sometimes a one hour phone call is worth dozens of hours of research.
- Most of our experts have been with HS4CC for over 5 years and have graduated at least one student with loads of college credit. Our team answers questions and provides resources 365 days of the year to a diverse population! This kind of expertise is highly prized around here. Every one of our consultants first serves as a moderator for many years. This kind of “peer review” in public is the surest way to identify well-qualified moderators who can also provide excellent advice as consultants.
- Volunteer vs working. If we answer a question privately, we help one person. If we do it in the blog, it reaches 30,000. Our moderators volunteer 10-20 hours per week all year long helping the homeschool community as a whole. This strong service model is how we can help 50,000 people each year! When we take the conversation private, that is no longer a volunteer situation, it’s working for a specific person one on one, and that switches over to help for hire. HS4CC is privileged to provide this opportunity for homeschooling parents to receive compensation for their highly specialized knowledge in this area.
Some of the big areas our team can help you with include:
- High School Plan: When homeschooling, it’s essential to create a well-structured high school plan that aligns with your academic goals and interests. Consider the subjects you want to study, the curriculum you’ll follow, and any extracurricular activities or projects you’d like to pursue.
- College Credit Options: Once you have a high school plan, where does college credit fit in? Homeschooled students have various options to earn college credits while in high school. Advanced Placement (AP) courses, Dual Enrollment, and College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams are some common ways to earn college credit. Comparing the options is a valuable part of what we do.
- Transcripts and Documentation: Keeping thorough and well-organized records of your homeschooling activities, coursework, and achievements is crucial. These transcripts will be essential when applying to colleges or seeking credit for your courses. Knowing how to present high school and college credit properly assures your teen’s academic record presents their accomplishments in the best light.
- College Comparisons: Making the most of your teen’s college credit is no easy task, especially if you’re trying to choose a college that gives you the highest amount of credit. If you’re trying to compare a few colleges, we can help you evaluate the differences and how your credit is projected to be applied.
