As a homeschool school mother of four, I remember the fear and uncertainty when it came to teaching high school, wondering if I could prepare my teens properly. I didn't want to fail. Their futures were at stake. I spent so much time asking questions of veteran homeschool moms, and learning through trial and error. But guess what? I made it. We made it. My three oldest went on to college and all received academic scholarships. Two went on to graduate with honors and did so in three years, thanks to their hard work and UnboundMy youngest graduates this month! 

Abigail Endsley, a former student counselor and Unbound student, has learned quite a bit about homeschooling mothers and their fears of not getting it right when it comes to preparing their student for college and life. 

This is what she had to say, "Working as a Student Counselor here at Unbound, I’ve talked to many fear-stricken homeschool moms. Just last month, one such mom called me in a panic.

“I’ve done everything wrong! My child will never make it to college and it will be all my fault!”

Ever felt that way? You’re not alone.

Meet Bonnie, Cindy, Kelly, and Nickie: four successful homeschool moms who have graciously shared their stories about the ups and downs of homeschooling and what they consider to be the most important skills to teach your children, especially when preparing them for college.

So, what does your child need to succeed after high school?"
