In the high school chapter of my homeschooling guide, I caution parents (and students) not to think of one post-high school path as “less than” another. Society often looks at college as “better,” but it may not be better for your student. Read about one student’s post high-school journey here: http://www.carolinah...m/alinks10.html.

 

Warmly,

If anyone has any questions about post-high school plans, or wants to share their own experiences of their student's journey after high school, please feel free to post in this thread.

I agree that college is not the only choice after high school. It was most definitely my son's choice. However it doesn't look to be the path my daughter hopes to take. She is currently in 10th grade. I have begun to think about how to prepare her for life after high school. Currently she is trying to get a part time job. I think it will be very important for her to develop a resume and gain work experience while she is in high school. I also hope to be able to give her some type of aptitude test and the opportunity to shadow people in different jobs that might interest her,

It sounds like you're on the right track. Apprenticeships are a great way to earn credits for her transcript, and experience in the different fields she's interested in. So many high school graduates don't know what they really want to do after high school. Having a chance to sample different careers will help with that. And who knows... if a job she enjoys requires a degree, she may decide to go to college after all, or start her own business. If she can't find paid jobs, encourage her to try positions where she'll gain experience and knowledge instead.

 

Warmly,
