Planning for High School and Beyond
If you missed our free workshop, no worries! Here's a recap:
Homeschooling through high school gives your student a wide range of opportunities that may not be available to others. Mid-Metro Academy is here to help students pursue their unique goals and passions during and after high school.
Along with the opportunities of homeschooling come challenges. As a parent, you must make sure your students take the necessary courses so their diplomas are as meaningful as any other high school diploma. You need to prepare a high school transcript that colleges or other institutions will accept and that accurately reflects what your student has achieved through home, classroom, and other learning experiences.
Let us help you! Watch this site for more information and resources in the coming weeks--like this fillable transcript template courtesy of HSLDA. If you want one-on-one assistance, consider using the consulting services of veteran homeschooler Lisa Paschen. She can work with you to develop a four-year high school plan that takes into account your student's unique interests and goals. And she'll walk you through the ins and outs of transcripts.
Create Your Four-Year Plan
Design your student's ideal high school experience at Mid-Metro Academy. Begin by creating a four-year plan for your student. Use our helpful template. Remember, you set the graduation requirements for your own homeschool. However, most homeschooling families want to take into account the graduation requirements established by the Minnesota Department of Education.
Career & Business Classes for Secondary Students
High school shouldn't be one-size-fits-all. Your student can explore career options, learn a technical skill, and even start a business while still in high school. We have plenty of courses to meet a variety of interests and aptitudes.
College and/or Alternatives
Going straight from high school to college isn't necessarily the best option for everyone. Trade schools, certificate programs, international experiences, internships, and taking a gap year are all legitimate options and should be taken into consideration when developing your four-year plan.
