call for teen homeschool students

Teens and their families (homeschooled and otherwise): where are you?

(Also, don't forget: Spanish at the library tomorrow!)

If we can get enough interest among HS age homeschoolers, we can take advantage of a number of programs that offer college credit to teens. It could be a great new resource for college credit for teens with other teens in excellent classes with government support (like everyone else) -- available to homeschoolers and everyone else. 

Members of The Home Education Resource Center, in conjunction with HATCH of Hudson, recently met with Columbia-Greene Community College. It turns out, there are many ways for teen homeschoolers to get college credit.

The friendly people at Columbia-Greene Community College say they would host an informational seminar for homeschooling families to learn about Columbia-Greene, available options for college credit while in high school, and the college application process. In addition, C-GCC would provide tours to students who are interested in taking classes at C-GCC.

Homeschooled students in grades 7-12 and their families, anyone who has questions about college and homeschooling in high school (transcripts, credits, etc.) is welcome. 

Please respond to this post, or email if you think you would be interested in this type of program.

And there is a lot more exciting stuff in the works, grants we applied for (fingers crossed)... other stuff. We'd like to have a one-stop place for people to get the resources they need to make homeschooling in the Hudson area work for everyone's family. But first, we need more people. Join us! Email us and tell us who you are!
