- Did you try to duplicate the public school grad requirements, like 2 years of foreign language? Covering same subjects is not required of private schools in Kansas, though we have tried to follow the same basic subjects.
- If so, how did you get their foreign language? Did you teach it yourself, use a software or text? Take classes elsewhere?
- How many classes did you do elsewhere, rather than at home? Community College, other school, paid tutor, etc? What subjects were they?
- If you didn't duplicate public school grad requirements for your state, did your child have any trouble getting into college? Did they make them take those classes in college w/o counting toward their degree?
- Did they go to community college first, or a 4 year college? Private or state?
- How did you handle transcripts for your child? (I think I have this one figured out but am always looking for input on it.)
- If you never did standardized tests, how well did your child do on their first ACT or SAT? (We've done some practice tests and I'm not too worried about this for my oldest, but I am starting to re-think my anti-testing stance.)
- Did you take or skip the PSAT? I had initially read take it, but recently have read don't bother since very few gain a scholarship from it and it's not required.
- Did you keep a reading list? Did the colleges ever ask to see it? This keeps coming up in articles online as prep for college, and I can't figure out WHY! I don't recall having to show a reading list when I entered college. Weird.
Just a few questions I'm hoping to discuss with other homeschool families. My oldest has two years of high school left, and my 2nd oldest enters high school this Fall. The closer we get to our first graduation, the more questions I discover I have. LOL!!
