Many thanks to our guest speaker, Pam DeRuiter, at the January business meeting. Pam's motivational speaking encouraged us that we can make it through the high school years of homeschooling. She shared some of her wisdom and knowledge to help us face the challenge. If you missed the meeting or did not get a handout, please see the attached documents and download them for your use.
Thank you for visiting the BCHE Website and taking a look at these helpful documents. The below information can be a useful guide in your high school years. As information, laws and requirements by colleges are always changing, we suggest that you CALL the county school board, Bright Futures office and/or the college of your student's choice for help - they have specific homeschool advisors who are happy to answer your questions.
