Homeschooling for College Credit is a resource you can trust.
ORIGIN: Jennifer Cook-DeRosa founded the Homeschooling for College Credit organization in 2012 and serves as the Executive Director. The Homeschooling for College Credit brand began as a Facebook fan page to augment the release of Jennifer’s book, Homeschooling for College Credit, but by 2015, had grown into a national support organization serving tens of thousands of parents each year.
Jennifer’s professional work inside the higher education system for 20 years inspired her to start an organization that could teach homeschooling parents how to access college opportunities that they may not be aware of. Since college employees always have a conflict of interest, Homeschooling for College Credit has always operated independently outside of the higher education system. Read: Jennifer’s personal story
During COVID, Homeschooling for College Credit went from serving 19,000 to over 58,000 and Jennifer made the decision to formalize what we were doing by becoming an “official” nonprofit organization! In 2023 we applied for and received official 501(c)(3) charity status!
